We are once again proud to bring you the Adam Smith Institute's "The Future of European Rail" conference to be held on the 13th and 14th March in Berlin.

Building on the success of the past eleven years, this industry leading conference acts as a great forum for debate bringing together senior-level figures from government bodies, passenger and freight operating companies, infrastructure managers and suppliers from across Europe.

Questions to be addressed this year include:

How well are governments, regulators and rail companies working together?
How can incumbent rail operators get ready for the challenges of competition?
What is the best way to deliver fair and open access to the rail network?
How can we measure the success of Member States' new regulatory models?
What can be learnt from the liberalisation of rail freight services?
What is the vision for the next 20 years of European rail transport?
Speakers already confirmed for the 2007 event include:
