Introduction
Against a backdrop of increasing traffic and passengers levels the importance of continual
safety improvements remain paramount for all parties involved in rail. Passenger safety will
always remain a headline grabber but of course improved safety has other benefits to the rail
and train operators and infrastructure owners as well as passengers; less delays, protection of
assets and improved public image to name a few.

Following the success of last years event Rail Safety and Risk Assessment 2010 –
a European Railway Review and Eurotransport Conference will bring together Europe’s
leading figures from the rail sector to discuss and share experience and opinion of the current
and future state of the rail networks. This two day conference will provide insights into the
latest regulations, projects, initiatives and challenges facing Europe’s networks. The
programme is designed to promote open discussion with roundtable sessions specifically
tailored to enable and promote free discussion amongst participants, as well as plenary
sessions which will include presentations from the most pre-eminent individuals in the field.

The conference will bring together all stakeholders including infrastructure owners/managers,
train operating companies, notified bodies, maintenance companies, rolling stock
manufacturers, risk assessment and accreditation specialists, consultants and suppliers. Aside
from the useful knowledge you will gain from the conference sessions, workshops and panel
discussions there will of course be plenty of time allocated during the programme for
networking and more informal discussions. Cement existing relationships and forge new ones
during the networking coffee breaks and evening drinks reception.
