London, UK, 16th March 2019 – Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation, energy management and automation, has announced it is a Platinum sponsor of the RIA Innovation Conference 2019, taking place on 19th of March.
RIA’s innovation events bring together all parts of the UK rail industry under one roof, from supply chain professionals to those working in government organisations. The events offer a mix of education, networking, and interaction to help drive the sector forward.
The 2019 conference is a unique opportunity for engagement between RIA members and representatives from the rail industry, including academia and innovation bodies. Participants include Network Rail, London Underground, HS2, DfT, BEIS, ORR, Train Operating Companies, the Rail Delivery Group, RSSB, UKTram, UK Rail Research & Innovation Network, Transport Systems Catapult, KTN and InnovateUK, as well as Schneider Electric.
The 11th Innovation Conference will also feature a ‘M. A. D. E. in Britain’ section. Building on RIA’s focus on ‘Growing Rail in uncertain times’, M.A.D.E stands for Materials, Automation, Data and Energy. These are all key areas in driving the UK rail industry in the Brexit era.
Commenting on the event, Peter Selway, Rail Segment Marketing Manager at Schneider Electric, said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring one of the rail industry’s keynote events of the year. The RIA Conference facilitates communication between businesses, the government and other rail stakeholders. Only through this dialogue, can we keep the industry moving forward and meet the multitude of challenges ahead. At Schneider, we have been powering railways since 1850, and today work on hundreds of projects around the world. We want to continue playing a significant role in reshaping, transforming and enriching the rail industry in the future.”
