Speaker: Dr. Andrea Giuricin, CEO of TRA Consulting and consultant for the CEO of ITALO-NTV
We are excited to be joined by the Italian privately owned high-speed operator NTV Italo. Since beginning operation in 2012, Italo has helped double high speed ridership within Italy. Which has been a big benefit to the state-owned Trenitalia as well. Italo now has 50 high speed trains traveling throughout Italy at up to 190 mph.
Please join us to learn more about Italo's service and how they have transformed train travel in Italy.
This event is free, but registration is required.
