UIC and the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency, with the support of the AU, African Union, have the great pleasure to invite you to participate in the First African Rail Digital Summit, themed “Africa: the Continent of the Digital Future for Rail”, which will take place from 25 – 27 February 2019.
The venue of this event is the Cape Town Marriott Hotel Crystal Towers, Cape Town, South Africa.

For the first time the conference will provide unique opportunities to develop and enhance synergies between politicians, railways, economists, the supply industry and African digital ecosystems (African start-ups and universities) and therefore to support the development of rail on the African continent thanks to digital developments.

The conference will give the floor to the most important and key speakers.
High-level politicians and economists, academics and manufacturers will deliver their vision on African Digital Rail.
The Summit will alternate between plenary sessions and workshops.
One of the expected deliverables is an up-to-date strategic path to African Digitalisation for Rail.
All details regarding registration will be made available in a further edition of UIC eNews.

UIC, together with the African Union and NEPAD are looking forward to welcoming you to Cape Town.
