On March 28, Progressive Railroading will present the Maintenance of Way Virtual Conference & Expo, a free online event to be held from 9 to 5 p.m. (EDT). Similar to a traditional trade show, the web-based exposition and conference will help connect rail decision makers and industry suppliers in the maintenance-of-way (MOW) sector.
The event will offer educational sessions, a virtual exhibit hall, networking opportunities and a resource center. To be presented in the virtual conference auditorium, the sessions will focus on the Cedar Rapids & Iowa City Railway Co.’s MOW program, including a key bridge replacement; MTA Metro-North Railroad’s response to severe, infrastructure-damaging weather in late 2011; rail industry safety training and strategies; the industry’s near-term legislative pursuits; and a crosstie market update from the Railway Tie Association.
Registered attendees can create a professional profile, "chat" with booth representatives via the Internet, access a networking lounge, and tap online buying and selling opportunities.
