The fifth WDF offered exciting insights into the future of railways

This year's WDF took place from 5 to 7 June in Vienna, Austria. Amongst more than 260 participants from 40 different countries were system integrators, operators, manufacturers, representatives of science as well as other interested associations. Once again, the broad audience turned the conference into a unique international discussion platform.

The event was characterised by top-level presentations focusing on "intelligent tracking solutions" and the future of railways. With their lectures, the speakers contributed to a diverse, highly topical and future-oriented pool of topics. In addition to the numerous presentations, there were plenty of opportunities for networking in an informal atmosphere. On Thursday evening, the gala dinner again took place in the special ambience of the Schönbrunn Orangery – which made it an absolute highlight for all delegates.

“The philosophy of the WDF is to promote the development of the railway industry by future orientation and close collaboration. It is one of the best opportunities for sharing information about the rail industry, for networking and to keep up to date with the latest trends regarding intelligent tracking solutions for smart traffic management, innovative maintenance strategies and more”, Christian Pucher, WDF Programme and Content Director, summarised.
