Discussing the event, James Nesbitt, founder of event organiser Sagacity Media Ltd said: "Knowledge is power, and smart tech and the Internet of Things means that the rail industry has access to more knowledge of the minutiae of its operations than ever before.

"The convergence of technology and infrastructure can transform the rail industry, capable of supporting the sector in doing everything from increasing profits to lowering emissions and improving performance.

"Information is always an asset, and digital technology means accessing it has never been easier. The question is how the knowledge garnered from this data can be deployed to enable rail industry businesses to achieve its aims, whether corporate, environmental or operational."
