railway interior summit 2021

RedCabin, together with its host partner Irish Rail, today announces the return of its Railway Interior Innovation Summit, taking place at the Auditorium Friedrichstrasse in Berlin, Germany from 9 – 10 November 2021.

The two-day summit, which marks a celebration of the European Year of Rail, will focus on unveiling new interior products and concepts, as well as developing cross-industry partnerships and innovations that enhance the onboard experience.

The rail industry is entering a period of change, with passenger and regulatory demands increasing the focus on sustainability, accessibility, hygiene, comfort, and privacy of rolling stock interiors. As the industry continues to adapt to the fallout from Covid-19, open and honest collaboration between operators, manufacturers and designers on these topics will actively shape the long-term future of rail travel.

This year’s Railway Interior Innovation Summit will feature:

  • Next-generation innovation: global launches of cutting-edge interior concepts and innovations, including the premiere of the Bizrail concept from N+P Design; a new seating product from Compin Fainsa; updates from Deutsche Bahn on its IdeasTrainCity project; and ÖBB and PriestmanGoode reveal more about the NightJet Interior.
  • Passenger experience focus: interactive presentations and workshops from the likes of Alstom, Mormedi, and Yellow Window focusing on the latest trends and research on changing passenger demands, what these mean for operators, and how they will shape the future of rail travel – including night trains and urban services.
  • Project showcase: detailed case studies exploring successes and key learnings from collaborative rail projects and sustainability initiatives across Europe, including Bucharest, Germany, France, and the UK.
