This event focuses on the students who represent the next generation of railway engineering professionals. Meet The Next Generation is broken into two portions, a questions and answers forum informing upcoming professionals and a Networking Reception afterwards to make contacts and continue the expansion of knowledge. Sponsors will receive a table at the Networking Reception with their logo highlighted on surrounding signage.  Each sponsoring company's profile and information will be included in the On-Site Information Booklet distributed to attendees for followup discussions.
