Investment in transport infrastructure, the development of air-rail connectivity and innovation in construction will be the key themes of the first International Air Rail Transport Summit (www.airrailsummit.com), taking place in Bangkok on Wednesday 20 November 2019.
The International Air Rail Organization (IARO), together with Thailand’s largest project management firm - Project Planning Service Company Limited (PPS), and multi-disciplinary design firm - PPS One Works, are delighted to introduce this new key event to the infrastructure calendar.
Endorsed by Thailand’s Ministry of Transport and the Italy’s Embassy in Thailand, the summit will bring together leading industry and public sector figures from around the world to learn more about air-rail connectivity and to explore the opportunities and challenges facing infrastructure planning, funding, delivery and operations across the region.
Focused on the rapidly-expanding Asia-Pacific infrastructure pipeline, this one-day event will discuss lessons to be learnt from benchmark mega-projects around the world in relation to improved passenger experiences, efficient operations and innovative construction techniques. With major projects such the new High-Speed Rail Links connecting three major airports coming to conclusion, and important airport expansion projects such as U-Tapao International Airport and Suvarnabhumi International Airport in discussion, what are Thailand’s infrastructure priorities post-2020? And what actions are required from all stakeholders to ensure long-term success in achieving Thailand 4.0 targets?
Local and Global Case Studies
A busy programme of benchmark case-studies, development updates and panel discussions from local and international industry leaders. Following the morning, attendees will be invited to attend one of two detailed spotlight sessions discussing specific areas of infrastructure development:
Session One: InnoCon Bangkok
As Digital technology continues to power a new era of construction, leading experts discuss how best to leverage the increasingly large amounts of data and technology for their own benefit, as well as the benefit of infrastructure project teams, clients and, most importantly, the end users.
Session Two: Air-Rail Development Focus
Find out more about projects from around the world and learn more about the trends in technology, operations, development, marketing and branding of rail links to airport, as well as best-practice expertise in rail services to airports.
