International Railway Journal (IRJ) and IRITS Events Ltd are pleased to announce the participation of Aarhus Letbane I/S, the company responsible for the construction, operation and maintenance of Denmark’s first light rail system. Aarhus Letbane will be represented by CEO Claus Rehfeld Moshøjat the 4th International Railway Summit, taking place on 15-17 February 2017 in Paris.

Construction began on the Aarhus light rail network in September 2013 and is projected to open in 2017, the year that Aarhus will be European City of Culture.

When Phase 1 is completed, new stretches of track serving the very centre of the city will be integrated with existing rail to create a 51-station 110km network uniting the greater Aarhus area.

The project will form the backbone of public transport in Denmark’s second largest city, aiming to spur urban revitalisation and reduce pollution caused by automobile traffic.

Mr Rehfeld Moshøj, CEO of Aarhus Letbane,will be a VIP guest at the International Railway Summit. He will take part in one-to-one consultation meetings with participating technology solution providers as well as in networking functions throughout the summit. International Railway Summit is an exclusive platform for rail sector leaders to get free bespoke consultation for their future projects based on a unique matchmaking service between buyers' requirements and experts' knowledge.

Organisations and individuals interested in learning more about International Railway Summit and about how they can participate in the event can visit or contact the organisers, IRJ and IRITS Events.

International Railway Summit is a meeting of senior executives representing the world’s key rail operators, rail infrastructure management companies, national and local governments, rolling stock manufacturers and a wide range of solution providers.

International Railway Summit provides a 'matchmaking' service between rail industry leaders ('buyers') and technical experts ('suppliers'), based on buyer delegates' project requirements and the proven expertise of large and small suppliers that we have carefully handpicked. Based on this matchmaking, buyer delegates attend one-to-one consultation sessions with suitable suppliers during the annual summit.

In addition to the one-to-one meetings, delegates also attend a conference programme given by key industry leaders and experts and network over lunches and dinners with their counterparts and industry colleagues from all over the world. International Railway Summit is co-hosted by International Railway Journal and IRITS Events and will take place on 15-17 February 2017 in Paris, France.
