It’s not too late to get the “early bird” registration rate for Progressive Railroading’s RailTrends® conference, which will be held Nov. 1-2 at the W New York Hotel in Manhattan. People who sign up before the end of the business day on Friday Sept. 7 can pay $1,249 to attend the two-day New York City event instead of the full $1,449 rate.

Titled "2012 Freight Game Changers: Coal, Commodities, Politics and Passenger Rail," this year’s RailTrends conference includes comprehensive content that was created in response to the internal realities of the rail industry, top-of-mind topics and button-pushing subjects, such as the future of Amtrak, energy markets, information technology, intermodal and rail safety.

Speakers include Union Pacific Railroad Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer Lynden Tennison; CN Executive VP and Chief Marketing Officer Jean-Jacques Ruest; CSX Transportation VP of Intermodal Bill Clement; Kansas City Southern EVP of Sales and Marketing Patrick Ottensmeyer; Canadian Pacific VP of Energy and Merchandise Tracy Robinson; Amtrak President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Boardman; Genesee & Wyoming Inc.
