The UIC Workshop on Passenger Activities and High Speed Rail Traffic will be hosted by the Railways of the I.R. of Iran (RAI) under the auspices of UIC in Tehran on 30 – 31 August and 1 September 2014 for three days.

This workshop will be organised and presented by the top managers and instructors from the UIC Passenger Forum and High Speed Department, as well as managers from Spain, Germany, etc.

The event will bring together engineering professionals from passenger and high speed sectors from the Middle East and Asia and will provide an opportunity to exchange information and share best practices to improve passenger activities and high speed rail.
