INTRODUCING THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL AIR RAIL TRANSPORT SUMMIT – BANGKOK
The International Air Rail Organization (IARO), together with Thailand's largest project management firm – Project Planning Service Public Company Limited (PPS), and multi-disciplinary design firm – PPS One Works, are delighted to announce the very first International Air Rail Transport Summit – Bangkok.
Endorsed by Thailand's Ministry of Transport, the summit will bring together leading industry and public sector figures from around the world to learn more about air-rail connectivity and to explore the opportunities and challenges facing infrastructure planning, funding, delivery and operations across the region.
Focused on the rapidly-expanding Asia-Pacific infrastructure pipeline, this one-day event will discuss lessons to be learnt from benchmark mega-projects around the world in relation to improved passenger experiences, efficient operations and innovative construction techniques. With major projects such the new High-Speed Rail Links connecting three major airports coming to conclusion, and important airport expansion projects such as U-Tapao International Airport and Suvarnabhumi International Airport in discussion, what are Thailand's infrastructure priorities post-2020? And what actions are required from all stakeholders to ensure long-term success in achieving Thailand 4.0 targets?

Throughout the day, speakers and organisers will offer genuine insight and sector intelligence to an audience of over 500 delegates from across the industry related to planning, developing, building and operating air-rail links – and also organisations, including airlines and airports, who have a business interests in partnerships for their success.
