The Executive Committee and the Board of IRF at their annual Statutory Meeting held in Paris on 16th April 2014 have firmed up the venue and dates of the next IRF World Meeting. This major event will be held at New Delhi, the capital of India from 14-17 November 2017. The decision of the IRF to hold this event in India reflects the growing demand for surface transport and mobility in India, and the importance of India as a market for transport infrastructure and services.
The World Meeting offers professionals, leaders, experts, companies and governments active in the transport sector, from across the Globe, to come together, meet and discuss issues relevant to them, and to exhibit and showcase their products. Held every four years for the last 60 years, the World Meeting is a highly regarded and must attend event.
This World Meeting will have a broader focus than in previous editions and will include the topic of mobility, and the role of policy in stimulating the development of markets for our products.
“I am confident that New Delhi will provide to all our international guests, a taste of the well-known Indian culture and hospitality” said Mr. Kiran K. Kapila, Chairman of IRF. “We have already started working on the programme and will make sure that we deliver – together with the traditional support of other key organizations in our sector sector – excellence at all levels”, he added.
India, one of the fastest growing economies in the world, is requiring and attracting massive investments in the transport infrastructure. The IRF World Meeting will also provide an important occasion for potential investors to partner and participate in the immense opportunities that the country has to offer.
A dedicated twitter account for the 18th IRF World Meeting @IRF2017 is already operational and will keep everybody informed about the latest developments.
