The Only Industry Event Completely Dedicated To Rail Procurement & Refurbishment

Presenting A Two Day Business Conference With Separately Bookable Days - Designed To Help Directors Of Rail Procurement & Heads Of Rolling Stock To Cost Effectively Modernise Their Fleets And Exceed Passenger Expectations....And All To The Original Timeline And Budget.

Whilst in the past a train was designed to last for forty or fifty years, the technological revolution has changed the market dynamics considerably.

The combination of customer expectations and rapidly changing technology with the traditional cost/benefit analysis and new regulatory requirements, has rendered the decision making process of buying new against restructuring much more complex.

Do You Have To Procure New Trains? Or Do You Have Other Options?

That's why LBCG has produced the first European summit designed to help guide the decision-making processes of new rolling stock versus renovating and leasing, taking into account the enormous market changes brought in by technological development and new EU regulations.

How Do You Buy The Trains To Ensure Optimal Rollout & Support?

Day One will be packed with operator case studies on how to conduct a successful procurement of new stock from the initial due diligence to the roll out, highlighting common barriers and possible solutions to ensure a timely, cost effective delivery of your project.

Value For Money Refurbishment & Life Extension Strategies

On Day Two, the speakers will share case studies on cost effective renovation strategies on making the most of old stock, managing customer expectations and spare part obsolescence whilst avoiding any project delays or overspend.

This event will deliver technical, actionable information to delegates preparing to make some of the most important and challenging choices of their career, whether you are about to buy new, renew or lease rolling stock, this event will help you understand the intricacies of procurement and renovation, bringing real life case studies highlighting best practice and lessons learned by some of the most innovative train operators.
