Plasser & Theurer launches first online trade fair

How do I increase the profitability of my projects? How do I address the issue of sustainability for my company? What new opportunities does the current digitalisation push offer me? Relevant questions that you ask yourself as an operator of track construction machines. The first virtual trade fair by Plasser & Theurer offers relevant answers. It starts on 27 April 2021.

Time never stands still. And the development of technology in modern track construction certainly does not. Right now, we are experiencing a whole series of exciting developments that will change track construction and maintenance in the long term. The topics that are increasingly coming to the fore are clear. It is about the digitalisation of machines and work processes, sustainable technologies and service models that make the operation and maintenance of machines even more efficient and easier. Ultimately, however, it is still about how these topics can contribute to further increasing economic efficiency in railway construction.

New format for new paths

As technology leader, Plasser & Theurer plays a decisive role in shaping these trends and - despite the pandemic - is now launching a large number of very concrete solutions. And if it is not possible to present these innovations at real trade fairs, then we will visit to our customers online! From 27 to 30 April 2021, Plasser & Theurer will organise the first virtual trade fair under the motto INNOVATION FOR YOU.
