AusRAIL PLUS – Exhibition Information

28 February – 2 March 2022 | ICC, Sydney

AusRAIL PLUS will bring together key industry representatives to connect, explore opportunities and challenge norms at such an exciting time when so many transformational rail projects are being planned or actively constructed in Australia. What a welcome change to the previous two years of virtual meetings and events!

Rebecca Pickering, Inland Rail Chief Executive – Interim, Australian Rail Track Corporation

AusRAIL PLUS is one of the best knowledge sharing and networking events that everyone in the rail industry must attend.

Nick Easy, Chief Executive Officer, Queensland Rail

I am really looking forward to attending AusRAIL PLUS to see all of our business partners and colleagues in person. This catch up is well overdue!

Raymond O’Flaherty, Chief Executive Officer, Metro Trains Melbourne

I’m looking forward to AusRAIL because, as the last two years have demonstrated, face to face connection with one another is so important, and we’ve really missed those opportunities to come together to collaborate, share ideas and challenge the status quo. The Port of Melbourne is growing its rail capability as we speak, and we are excited to play an important part in promoting the benefits of a fully integrated freight rail network. AusRAIL is a terrific opportunity to learn, connect and network.

Caryn Anderson, Executive General Manager Port Growth and Planning, Port of Melbourne

I am really looking forward to attending AusRAIL to see everyone in the rail community. With record breaking investment in rail across Australia, this is the time to catch up with the latest progress in the “Golden Age of Rail”.

Howard Collins OBE, Chief Operations Officer, Transport for NSW

Ausrail PLUS is going to be our first chance in nearly two years to reconnect with many colleagues and customers face to face, I am very excited both from a professional and personal perspective. From the business side we’ve got some new products we are keen to show off and it gives us the time to have in depth discussions with customers which is generally not so easy to do over Zoom. From a personal perspective I’m looking forward to swapping some war stories and of course a bit of industry gossip over a couple of drinks. Can’t wait!

Michael McLellan, Managing Director, Knorr-Bremse Australia

This will be the first time in almost two years the industry has been able to network and be collaborative with each other, working towards new innovations and future planning of our industry.

AusRail PLUS will be a catalyst and trigger for the industry to start networking and looking at the future in a new world. The event will give us a chance to be proactive rather than be stuck in survival mode. We can reset and move forward.

Over the past 18 months, the industry has moved and grown significantly. We have adapted to flexible working and proven that we can keep momentum going whilst changing the way we work and also move the industry forward in a virtual world. AusRail PLUS will also give us the chance to celebrate our accomplishments and the individuals who have achieved great things through a tough time.

Steve Butcher, Executive General Manager, Rail – John Holland

AusRAIL PLUS has been firmly established as THE major rail sector ‘business event’ for Australasia and the largest combined rail sector conference and exhibition within the Southern Hemisphere dating back to 2003!

AusRAIL Plus is the largest rail rail industry event in the southern hemisphere. Hosted by the Australasian Railway Association and organised by Informa Connect, the event, brings together all facets of the rail industry under the one roof over three days, incorporating an expansive conference program combined with an extensive trade exhibition. AusRAIL is also supported by: Institute of Railway Signal Engineers (IRSE), Railway Technical Society Australasia (RTSA), Rail Track Association Australia (RTAA) and and the Permanent Way Institute (PWI) NSW and promoted globally.

Join us in 2022 in Sydney on the 28 February – 2 March!

AusRAIL PLUS in Sydney is gearing up to be the largest combined rail conference and exhibition for the region on the 2022 calendar. We’re delighted that from 1 November 2021, international participants can now participate with the removal of International boarder restrictions and quarantine processes if flying directly into Sydney, New South Wales.

Should your company be represented as a Sponsor and/or Exhibitor?

As the rail industry flourishes during this period of increased rail projects (as part of the federal and state governments economy boosting measures), it is more important than ever that manufacturers, suppliers and service providers continue to build new and long-term relationships with their clients. With the Exhibition space for AusRAIL PLUS 2021 being so well advanced in sales, it’s time to be proactive, rather than reactive and book your exhibition while space remains. Sponsorship opportunities will be launched in February/March 2021!
