The State Railway of Thailand (SRT), national passenger and freight service operator, will participate at the 5th International Railway Summit in Kuala Lumpur on 15-17 November 2017. SRT will take part in pre-arranged one-to-one consultation meetings with technical experts during the summit.
SRT operates all of Thailand’s national railway lines, carrying 44 million passengers in 2014 and 11m tonnes of freight per year over the period 2007-2012. SRT is also one of Thailand’s largest landholders.
On 11 July 2017 the Thailand Government approved the construction of the country’s first high-speed line, linking Bangkok to the major city of Nakhon Ratchasima. The line represents the first phase of a 615km railway running from Bangkok to Nong Khai, in the North East of the country. At Nong Khai the line will meet the China – Laos Railway, connecting Thailand to the Pan-Asia Railway Network.

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, 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 hosted by IRITS Events. The 5th International Railway Summit will take place on 15-17 November 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the first time the event will be hosted in Asia. The 6th International Railway Summit on 21-23 February 2018 in Prague, Czech Republic.
