Meeting the demand for comfort performance and safety in the railway industry is the focus of IQPC’s International Railway Interiors Conference from 13 – 15 December, 2010, in Berlin, Germany.

(PresseBox) (Berlin, )
As the railway industry continues to compete against the airline industry for passengers, it has become vitally important that train manufacturers, operators, designers and major suppliers work together to create the next generation of railcars. Meeting the demand for comfort performance and safety in the railway industry is the focus of IQPC’s International Railway Interiors Conference from 13 – 15 December, 2010, in Berlin, Germany.

During the three-day event (including an interactive workshop day), delegates can hear about the latest trends and developments from 20 leading companies and institutes, including Deutsche Bahn, European Railway Agency (ERA), Siemens AG, Nomad Digital, and Heathrow Express.

Focal points of the conference are:

• Hear about the potential for innovative interior design methods to be used to create a coherent concept for the next generation of railway vehicle
• Discuss how to win back customers through creative interior design to improve train ambience and enrich the passenger environment
• Assess how to stay competitive by examining future trends in comfort and design for first class travel
• Learn about the growth in bandwidth demand and what the future for wireless applications holds in train entertainment
• Find out about innovations in fire modelling for rolling stock and what are the most suitable fire protection systems to install

On 13 December, Heinz Reimann, Senior Engineer at Bombardier Transportation AG, Switzerland, will speak about EU railway regulations on rolling stock, Technical Specifications for Interoperability (TSIs), the effect of CEN/TS 455 45 on the railway industry, and the newly approved European fire safety standard EN 45545.

On day two of the conference, delegates can hear from Mark Chestney and Sara Khalilian from Heathrow Express an update on the Heathrow Express Fleet Modernisation, as well as from Klaus-Juergen Bieger, Fire Safety Officer and Head of Emergency Management at Deutsche Bahn AG, Germany, on how the company is dealing with tunnel safety in relation to European regulations.

During the interactive workshop day on 15 December, conference delegates can take part in discussions with various industry experts, such as Bas Leermakers, Project Officer at the European Railway Agency (ERA), who will lead a discussion on the future of fire safety requirements and identifying key challenges/cost drivers in materials approval, or Jay Saw, Commercial Director at Normad Digital, who will run a workshop on digital media, including WiFi solutions, in passenger lines.
