FTE C/D Passenger/Freight Traffic Conferences 2020
It is a year with special circumstances, due to the still ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, Forum Train Europe has restarted its activities on a small scale, and decided to hold this years FTE C Passenger Traffic Conference as a hybrid event, both locally in Ljubljana for those able to travel, and online for the other members. FTE was delighted to receive almost 20 participants from 6 countries in Ljubljana, who used the opportunity to discuss their routes together. The venue in Ljubljana due to it’s ample space allowed to observe the proper physical distance of 1.5 metres, so that the conference could be held in line with both the Swiss and Slovenian regulations. Unfortunately, for regulatory reasons FTE D could only be held as an online conference, since gatherings of more than 50 people are currently still prohibited in Slovenia. We are hoping that with growing knowledge about the Virus and ongoing research regarding treatments and vaccines, next year we will once more be able to hold all conferences the way people are used to, allowing for many fruitful informal discussions aside from the scheduled meetings.
We wish you all the best
