NEW TO 2018



As the rail industry is evolving, so are we. Middle East Rail are pleased to announce the introduction of two new profiles to the 2018 event. If you're in passesnger information systems or transport ticketing, speak to us today .


Passenger expectations are evolving alongside technology and call for transport operators to adopt new channels for:

  • Interacting with customers
  • smarter ticketing and information systems
  • New ways of meeting and exceeding customer expectations

Making the most of passenger data is key, and cannot only lead to an improved experience but also generate new revenue streams for the operator.

The Middle East Rail 2018 team is committed to helping transit operator’s start providing users with up-to-the-minute passenger information systems about services, which is why it will play a dominant role at Middle East Rail 2018.

Public transport systems need to cater for the modern passenger. Middle East Rail 2018 will play a vital role in ensuring this happens for the region.

Rail operators and government bodies want to meet with companies specialising in the following solutions:

  • Passenger experience
  • Passenger Wi-Fi and infotainment
  • Real-time data, analytics, and digital technology
  • Automatic passenger counting systems
  • Display systems - Real-time dynamic passenger information
  • Intermodal Transport Control System
  • E-Ticketing
  • Passenger information systems
  • Measuring ridership
  • Mobility centres
  • Planning & scheduling
  • Safety and Security
  • Traffic management


Regional governments and operators are excited about the emergence of digital services alongside public transport, and so are we. The region believes in a cash-light society and we are here to help make that happen.

The traditional payment and ticketing methods are outdated, wasteful and expensive. We want to help eliminate degradable tickets and payment methods wherever possible.

We believe that changing existing consumer habits is a difficult process and requires time, investment and education.

As part of Middle East Rail’s ongoing mission to help shape the future of the regional transport system, we are expanding the scope of the event. In line with our government partner’s requests and regional initiatives, Transport ticketing will be a key focus at Middle East Rail 2018.
