Get ready to go virtual.

There’s never been a better time for Africa's rail leaders to come together to share their expertise and navigate the challenges we are all facing. We just can’t do that in person right now. So, in conjunction with our partners, we’re bringing you Africa Rail Virtually, Africa’s first fully digital event of it's kind.

The first in the region, this virtual event will showcase how operators are innovating to endure and accelerating their digital transformation journeys to keep operations on-track. We’ll be broadcasting presentations and live interactive sessions from leading railway industry execs across the world. Join in from wherever you are online either live or watch the sessions on-demand.

“The Africa Rail platform offers a unique opportunity to collaborate and innovate… It offers us a platform to execute our plans with vigour and urgency to position Africa as a new frontier in rail innovation.”


Honourable Minister Fikile Mbalula, Minister of Transport,
