Event Description:

Ensuring mission critical safety and security across the US rail and transit network

Bringing together North America’s leading freight rail and passenger transit networks, SafeRail is the region’s only dedicated safety and security show. Taking place at the Georgetown University Hotel in Washington DC on April 11-12 2017, SafeRail is the perfect place for all stakeholders involved in the operational safety, digital and physical security on the US railroad and transit network to meet, learn and do business with each other.

Safety is a mission critical priority for the rail industry, and remains a key part of annual railroad budgets as threats continue to evolve with the rise of cyber-crime, proliferation of terrorism, and the continued need for the implementation of signalling systems such as PTC and CBTC. That is why we have put together a program of C-level executive speakers who will share their best practice and drive the industry forward. Speakers include:

  • Art Leahy, Chief Executive Officer, Metrolink SCRRA
  • Jim Hertwig, Chief Executive Officer, Florida East Coast Railway
  • Paul Comfort, Chief Executive Officer, MTA Maryland
  • Skip Elliott, Vice President Public Safety, Health and Environment, CSX
  • Marc Beaulieu, Chief Transportation & Safety Officer, VIA Rail Canada
  • Sean Ryan, Chief Security Officer, MTA Metro North Railroad
  • John G Anderson, Superintendent of PTC Operations, Canadian Pacific Railway
  • John O’Grady, Chief Safety Officer, Toronto Transit Commission
  • French Thompson, Director, Public Projects and System Design, BNSF Railway
  • Gardner Tabon, Chief, Office of System Safety, NJ Transit

As with all Global Transport Forum events, Railroad, Transit Agency and Government employees can attend for free while Industry suppliers can receive a discounted rate by quoting
