The railway industry is changing. Increasing global competition between a) train and component manufacturers, competition between b) train operators in Germany and Europe as well as c) intermodal competition with other, partly new modes of transport (electric cars, long distance buses) request railway’s value system to transform and innovate. The changes force the industry to exchange ideas and information to take action. These challenges will be address at the 5th RAILWAY FORUM on August 30 and 31, 2017 in Berlin.
The RAILWAY FORUM Berlin is the established partner and supply chain conference of Deutsche Bahn AG and the European Railway Industry. The patrons are Uwe Günther, CPO, Deutsche Bahn AG and Kay Euler, CTO & CQO, Deutsche Bahn AG. More than 700 managers and deciders meet regularly at the conference to discuss future trends, challenges and strategic directions of the railway industry. The participants consist of executives and their teams from the various DB business segments and the holding sections procurement and technics (ca. 75 DB representatives 03/2016), OEMs, system manufacturers, suppliers from all tier levels, politicians and leading scientists. The discussion is inspired by the encompassing Innovation Exhibition that showcases innovative solutions to the decision makers. Dr. Grube as well as other DB board members will most likely, as in 2016, again be actively involved in the conference.
The conference will focus on the strategic industry objectives of making rail a) competitive, b) international, c) digital and d) automated. These will guide all speeches and workshops on both days. Next to the conference, the enlarged exhibition divided into six different areas:
