CARS National Railway Day 2020
National Railway Day 2020 will take place on November 3rd and 4th, 2020 at Hôtel Bonaventure in Montréal, Quebec !
The theme for this year’s conference will be "Bridging the Gap: Non-Stop Innovation".
As an industry that supports the movement of people and material we also want to encourage the movement of ideas and technology. Innovation is an important theme that we believe bridges the various gaps that occur in our industry, such as technology, gender, age, and even cultural. It is a shared desire to create more effective ideas, processes and products to aide in the success of businesses.
This year we are providing a platform for member companies to present their innovative products and technologies: The Innovation Zone! On November 3rd from 2pm-5pm all NRD registrants are invited to the “Zone” to learn all about the exciting technologies our members have to offer. Please note the opening reception will follow at 5:00PM.
There will be approximately 12 time slots available so due to limited space, exhibitors and sponsors will be given priority to book their time slot for their presentation. Should there be remaining times available then we will extend the invitation to CARS members attending the show. Once presenters are confirmed they must submit a two line overview of the topic of their presentation to Vanessa Murrell at Vanessa_murrell@railwaysuppliers.ca so the agenda can be updated accordingly.
