Thank You for Attending CUTRIC's Smart Rail Technology Conference
Thank you for attending our first virtual Smart Rail Technology Conference! We had such a fantastic lineup of speakers and engagement from the audience. With 60 speakers, 27 sessions and over 200 attendees, we hope you enjoyed the information packed 2 days and we appreciate your patience as our team moved to the online platform to keep our staff and supporters healthy during this time.
Canada is a vast, expansive, beautiful country. To traverse it requires rail like none other. But low-cost high-frequency passenger rail has eluded most Canadians for decades. It’s time for change. The COVID-19 pandemic has opened our eyes to the need for rapid, extensive, and country-wide rail innovation that moves Canadians (and their freight) faster, cheaper and more sustainably than ever before.
Rail is critical to the growth of Canada as a global hub of innovation. It supports well-paying jobs and national economic growth. Leveraged properly, it can also support nation-wide technological innovation that addresses climate change while ensuring a high-quality of life for all Canadians.
At the Canadian Smart Rail Technology Conference 2020, participants will hear from industry experts, business leaders, and political representatives and decision-makers on the critical topics defining our nation’s rail future, including electrification, autonomy and connectivity, light-weighting, big data analytics, hyperloop technology, and post-pandemic rail recovery and growth.
Join us this November for a rail innovation conference that positions Canada as a leader in the global rail innovation dialogue.
