Partners RailFreight Summit Poland 2020:

Why Poznan

Poland is at crossroads, not only between West and East, but also between the Baltic and Adriatic Sea, between the Baltic States and mainland Europe and between two major corridors connecting the most important transport hubs of Europe. Each year we strike down at one of these hubs, setting the stage for an international gathering of all those involved in this intermodal network. We have been in Wroclaw and Gdansk. In 2020, we are in Poznan.
