The European Rail Congress is proud to announce High Speed 1 and Network Rail as our new headline sponsors to support this exciting new venture.

High Speed 1 is the railway between St Pancras in London and the Channel Tunnel and connects with the international high speed routes between London and Paris, and London and Brussels. HS1 Ltd holds the concession from government to operate, manage and maintain the high-speed railway infrastructure until December 2040. HS1 Ltd is also the owner of the stations along the route.

Network Rail is the not for dividend owner and operator of Britain’s railway infrastructure, which includes the tracks, signals, tunnels, bridges, viaducts, level crossings and stations – the largest of which it also manages. It aims to provide a safe, reliable and efficient rail infrastructure for freight and passenger trains to use.

We are also delighted to have on board as sponsors, Bombardier, one of the global leaders in rail technology with 62 production and engineering sites as well as 18 service centres in 26 countries and Thales, a French multinational company and world leader in advanced rail technology & equipment, providing rail signalling, communications and security solutions for transport authorities and operators.
