Events at Eurasia Rail Have Become the Center of Attention of Visitors
Events focused on technology were held within the scope of Eurasia Rail Exhibition. In company with Technology Writer M. Serdar Kuzuloğlu and Technology Writer/TV Presenter Ahmet Can, visitors and exhibitors of the exhibition had a chance to look at the railway sector from a technological point of view. They also listened to Technology Writer M. Serdar Kuzuloğlu`s speech called “The Next Station is...”.   The visitors and exhibitors had the opportunity to learn about how the technology-based new generation vehicles changed transportation, habitation, concepts, culture and life itself. M. Serdar Kuzuloğlu stated that the world changed not with technology but with transportation:  "The railway is a unique sector in every aspect. It has a structure of which the user, decider and the suppliers are all different. In this way, it resembles the pharmaceutical sector. Let`s not ignore the risk of wasting the potential of sectors whose stakeholders are disconnected from each other by focusing only on their own field."  and also added: "As we understand it today, travel and tourism began in the 1800s. The reason of it is the ’railway`. In 1914, the journey from America to China took an average of 153 days. Today we can reach anywhere in the world in 1.5 days. The online ‘fast’ shipping was a few days at first, then it turned into delivery on the same day. Today we are talking about minutes.”

Industry professionals, accompanied by Technology Writer and TV Presenter Ahmet Can, who is pursuing new generation technologies and groundbreaking innovations in transportation, visited the stands of the exhibitors as part of the Rail Master Class Special Exhibition Tour; examined the products and technologies of companies that meet the changing consumer needs. In the event, which was held in an interactive way with the questions asked by the participants and Ahmet Can to the company representatives, the guests were informed especially about the innovative products in the sector and domestic and national production technologies.
