Message from the CEO

I am so delighted to welcome you to Brisbane to celebrate AusRAIL 2022. After a tumultuous two years, AusRAIL 2022 will bring together industry en mass to celebrate, and network, and to discuss and engage on the latest issues facing our sector. 

With all borders open and a long lead time to prepare, we expect a large Australian and international cohort to attend AusRAIL in Brisbane 2022.

I am particularly pleased that we will be in Brisbane, where there is so much rail related activity.

AusRAIL brings together the greatest minds of the industry to engage on our greatest challenges and opportunities. Customer experience and the return to rail, sustainability, the evolving importance of rail freight and the challenges facing the rail supply chain will all be hot topics on the agenda.

Recognising the importance of diversity and the skills challenge facing the industry, it is wonderful that we can host our inaugural AusRAIL Women in Rail breakfast, where we will hear from leading women in the sector.

AusRAIL will bring together the leaders of our industry and provide a platform to engage with leading edge suppliers that can bring value enhancing solutions to rail operations.

I encourage you to join us for this exciting event.

AusRAIL Custom Stand Venue guidelines

All temporary structures will be professionally designed, structurally sound and will contain reasonable provision for:

  • Safety of persons to be accommodated in the event of fire including means of egress
  • Prevention of fire
  • Suppression of fire
  • Patrons must give consideration for wheelchair access to the Stand (NCC – Section D3.3) The reduction of the existing level of fire protection is not permissible.

Designers and builders have an obligation to design and construct to these principles and any relevant standards or legislation while meeting the special needs of their client. Parts of these principles include:

  • Stands over 18m2 where roofing is fitted must have a “Smoke Detection Device” and have a fire extinguisher installed. The recommended material for the roofing is “shark tooth” type material that allows water penetration from sprinklers and fire cannon.
  • Audience chairs within a temporary structure must be secured in groups of not less than 4 and not more than 16. Maximum seats in each row must not exceed 8 where there is an aisle at one end only or 16 where there are aisles on both sides of the row. (NCC NSW H101.11.1).
