About

A key communication platform for leaders of the railway business, the Strategic Partnership 1520 (SP) provides an annual analysis of the railway transport performance across the wide gauge.

The SP seeks to help coordinate polices on railway transport development across the area 1520 to secure it is on the cutting-edge of global transportation market.

At the heart of the discussions are the three main pillars of the railway industry: transportation, infrastructure and rolling stock. With over 20 interactive formats annually, the SP is a gateway to focused debates with high-level executives and policy-makers, business leaders, academicians, as well as heads of national railway companies from both 1520 and 1435 gauge systems.

A home to signing ceremonies for multimillion contracts each year, the SP is always in the limelight of media reports, including global railway editions, business radio stations and Russian federal TV-channels.

To ensure the SP is genuinely open-minded and inclusive, an informal Board of Directors teams up closely during the two-day programme to offer an unbiased overview of how effective and forward-looking the debates are to drive change and innovations in the railway sector.

A good balance between debates and entertainment programme is a guarantee for both learning and networking with the right people in the right place.
