We have an outstanding array of international speakers and a world-class programme prepared for this year’s edition.

Stefan has had a wide-ranging career, leading him to his current position as DB’s Chief Digital Officer. Stefan has been a Partner and Vice President at leading firms such as Booz Allen Hamilton, Booz & Company and Strategy&, part of the PwC network.

Deutsche Bahn now has DB Digital – actively shaping the digital future of mobility and logistics – making Stefan an excellent choice to address this year’s attendees.

This year’s edition is very special as UITP’s International Rail Conference will be combining with SITCE for the very first time in Asia. We have a world-class programme and an array of international speakers who will inform the attendees about the latest rail sector developments. I very much look forward to addressing the audience during my welcome speech and I hope that those with a vested interest in the international rail sector will come to Singapore to join in the debate.”

We have panel sessions on Artificial Intelligence, Digitalisation for Productivity and Autonomous Trains, as well as technical visits and an exclusive CEO panel on the closing day.
