Origin of this congress

The World Metro & Light Rail Congress & Expo is the largest event of its kind in the international urban railway sector, which has proved to be a success after more than 14 years of running, thanks to the fact that it offers a space for debate and strategies for the new challenges facing the railway industry.

Under the title "Innovation, Technology, Performance" it will be held for the first time in Bilbao, thanks to the collaboration of the Basque Government, SPRI, ETS, Euskotren and Metro Bilbao, and the support of Mafex,  the Basque Country being one of the largest railway manufacturing centres in Spain.
