Spoorwegmuseum (Railway Museum) in Utrecht (NL)

Technological progress, streamlined processes, speed and direction: the Railway Museum as metaphor for RTE. No other venue better embodies what the role of an RTE entails, illustrating on-sight the need for deliberate planning, aligning diverse teams, reducing risk, safeguard increments and create solutions.

Here, you will be immersed in the significance of the technological, economic, and social developments of our society over the course of centuries by means of railway transport.

Having our RTE Summit 2021 at the Railway Museum is a unique place to analyze our past, take a moment to reflect on our achievements thus far and gain impulse to continue program increments for the future. Without a doubt, the location will make an indelible impression on all attendees, inspire us, and remind us that working together brings us further than going alone.
