The New England Railroad Club invites members, industry professionals, students, and individuals interested in a career in the railroad industry to join us at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts, on Thursday, March 21, 2019. The Rail Tech Conference is both a technology driven forum and a professional development conference exploring high-tech solutions to issues relevant to the rail industry in New England.
The conference will provide participants – industry professionals from railroads, consulting companies, and suppliers, as well as those looking to start a career in transportation – with insight as to how the rail industry is seeking out and employing a wider range of tech skills in its daily operations. The application of new technologies, coupled with a skilled workforce that can both utilize and maintain them, is transforming the industry, allowing it to be faster, safer, and more efficient when responding to the challenges of today’s marketplace.
