About The Conference

Why tell you we’re going to innovate, when we can show it to you?

This year we’re switching things up, a lot. By the time the conference rolls around, we’ll have ran two hackathons in 2018 generating 30 new ideas. We’ll be inviting some of our HackTrain innovators to pitch their prototypes to the industry. This is your chance to see what the future of rail looks like and work with us to make it a reality today.

This Year's Topics

HackTrain 2018 Outcomes

You'll have the opportunity to see the very cutting edge of technology where our best HackTrain hackathon teams will present their prototypes.

A.I. Broken Down

Everyone keeps talking about it, but what exactly is it, how will it help you? Discover how can help you in your everyday and strategic aims.

Starting Small to Succeed

Big ideas are great, we all have them. Although it's good to be ambitious, it's also good to start quickly. Find out how Tesla, Apple, SpaceX created their empires through the simplest of initial ideas.


Innovation is Dead.
Long Live Innovation!

What do we really care about? "Innovation" or better outcomes? Let's find out why so many innovation initiatives in and outside of rail have failed and what we can learn from them.
