Accelerate: Rail 2020
Hilton London Tower Bridge, London, UK

Event description

Get up to speed on the most pressing issues facing the British rail industry – the event which offers unique access to leading figures from TOCs, ROSCOs, Network Rail and a whole host of transport bodies from across the UK.

Following the highly-anticipated Williams Review and HS2 Review, Accelerate: Rail 2020 comes at a water-shed moment for the rail industry to reflect on the significance of 2019 and CP6, and make progressive strides towards the future. Join us in March 2020 to explore key themes including:

Customer experience

Unpack the phrase ‘Put Passengers First’ – learn from Transport Focus and the Rail Delivery Group and be inspired by leaders such as Southeastern, who have been unafraid to break the status quo and deliver unprecedented results for their customers.

Regional devolution

Get an update on CP6’s new regional model from Network Rail‘s CEO, hear about vertical integration from Transport for Wales and take home insights from powerful Northern leaders on how you can increase regional accountability and engage local decision making.


Sustainability, investing in alternative fuels and going green is high on everyone’s agenda – don’t miss these honest sessions from Lilian Greenwood MPTransport Scotland and Porterbrook about making green choices for future generations.

The future of ticketing

Two new and exclusive case studies from LNER’s Fare Reform and Trainline’s CEO speaking about the role of AI in the ticketing experience – find out how you can use live tweets to predict disruption and big data to predict price rises for journeys.

The Digital Railway

Technology is overhauling rail infrastructure and planning strategically for future technological innovation is imperative. Unmissable insights from Banedenmark and the National Skills Academy Rail will show you how to attract a skilled, gender-balanced workforce to construct the Digital Railway, and how you can implement a digital railway across the entire rail network.


Look beyond the tracks and seek to understand how rail will link up with other modes of public transport in the future. Presentations from Transport for West Midlands and ViaVan will explore how TOCs can meet evolving passenger expectations for seamless travel, including collaborating with firms such as Uber to provide ‘first and last mile’ services.
