The Innovation Hub returns to Sydney in 2022 to keep you up to date with new trends and innovations.

Located within the Exhibition (Hall 1), the Innovation Hub will be the host area for the Innovation Seminar Series and sponsored seminars.

The Hub will feature live presentations from invited technical papers and market updates from industry specialists, together with sponsored updates from suppliers and manufacturers. One of the most visited areas with the AusRAIL PLUS 2019 exhibition, the Hub will again be a destination for all attendees, including conference delegates, exhibition visitors and stand staff to enjoy interesting and innovative topics for free.

Opportunities are still available to present a sponsored update promoting the advances and benefits of your products and services.
