Early-bird rate for October RailTrends conference still available


There isn’t much time left to take advantage of a discounted early-bird registration rate for Progressive Railroading’s RailTrends conference, which will be held Oct. 6-7 at the Affinia Manhattan Hotel. The special rate is only available through today, Aug. 14.

RailTrends will provide a host of information to rail professionals from all disciplines. Event topics include rail in a restructured economy, rethinking rail strategies, Mexico and the new economic world, positive train control — looking toward 2015, rail’s role in the stimulus recovery plan, and Gensets and other “green” issues.

Among the presenters: Federal Railroad Administrator Joseph Szabo, Association of American Railroads President and CEO Edward Hamberger, Norfolk Southern Corp. EVP of Planning and CIO Deborah Butler, Reps. James Oberstar and John Mica (invited), Watco Cos. Inc. CEO Rick Webb, and CN President and CEO E. Hunter Harrison, who will receive Progressive Railroading’s Railroad Innovator Award.

RailTrends is sponsored by platinum sponsor Miller Tabak & Co. L.L.C. and silver sponsors Gross & Janes Co., RailSolutions Inc. and Oliver Wyman Inc. For more information on the event and to register, follow this link.
