World Passenger Festival 2021

After a long pause, it was really great to pack our bags and fly off to a real-world exhibition and conference in Amsterdam. It was our first opportunity since we entered the rail market to set up our booth, to welcome old friends and new contacts from across the industry.

World Passenger Festival (WPF) has been held for many years. It was initially a rail industry event, but has grown in recent years to include more modes of transport. Participants were united by a shared interest in ground-based travel and passenger transport. There is a clear trend to create better journeys combining multiple modes of transport, so it is great to have a common place to meet. 

Conference sessions were full of discussions around enhancing passenger experience, revenue management and multi-modal travel. There aren't too many events which shine the spotlight on inter-city transportation, and letting software shine next to infrastructure was an added bonus. WPF proved to be a useful visit for us. 

Our Passenger Service System has been providing value for our rail and bus operators for many years, and we’re continuing our commitment to delivering a modern scalable platform embracing the SaaS model. It was pleasing to receive strong interest from those rail operators who are in the process of renewing and enhancing their inventory, reservation management and distribution capabilities. 

We proudly presented our recent advancements in complex inventory setup and our progress towards implementing the new OSDM standard (you can read more about OSDM here). These achievements lay the foundation to enable multi-modality through better connected passenger transport operators.

The coming months will be packed with exciting news, and we’re looking forward to engaging the market at WPF 2022. Stay tuned.
