About
Change the way you think about new and emerging technology at RISSB’s Technology and Innovation Conference in November. Go deep on the very issues and challenges facing the rail industry in the digital age and hear from industry-recognised speakers who are already implementing new, changing and developing technology in their own organisations.

Catering to everyone in industry from project managers to C suite executives, conference delegates will walk away with a greater understanding of how new and emerging technology and practices can be harnessed to improve safety, drive productivity and optimise performance.

Keeping a finger on the pulse of the Australian rail industry, this 2-day event will focus on areas that are growing in prominence in the rail industry with presentations on such things as:
• Automation
• Sustainability
• Asset Management
• Customer Information
• Condition Monitoring.

All our speakers will be giving practical advice on real problems, using their businesses as case studies for you to learn from. There will also be thought-provoking panels and debates that spark discussions and the exchange of ideas.  Get ready to hear some big ideas presented by influential leaders from some of the biggest names in rail!

In addition to the business sessions and presentations, the conference will give delegates a chance to relax, unwind and build their professional networks with a signature after-hours networking drinks event at the end of Day 1.
