Rail-Connections Survey Results…

A few weeks ago I started an initiative called ‘Rail-Connections’ for Metro and Rail Projects group (~90,000 members – rail-group.com). Purpose of the initiative is to identify knowledge sharing, networking, job seeking and business opportunities which exist within the group – members vary from clients, contractors, consultants, suppliers, to rail operators, etc..

The first step was to gather data about the type of members that exist and the ‘opportunities’ they are interested in (knowledge, networking, employment, business, etc.). A short survey was created at rail-connections.com – Thank you to all who completed the survey.


1.) Approx. 500 respondents

2.) Respondent Types:
30% Consultants
23% Contractors
10% Suppliers
10% Service Providers
12% Rail Operators
10% Others

3.) ‘Opportunities’ in order of priority:
1: Employment
2: Business Opportunities & Rail Knowledge
3: Networking

Other results for Rail-Connection members only…


We are still VERY short on survey participants. However, since it was summer holidays when this initiative was launched, I am now making a FINAL CALL to please complete survey by 17 OCT 2017!


Apart from the obvious reason that you can avail one of the many ‘opportunities’, only those who complete the survey will receive the final survey results, all future updates and invitation to participate in the next steps.


Without revealing too much, one of the largest rail event organizers wants to provide a platform for Rail-Connection members to interact and another company wants to provide Rail SMEs presence in the Middle East at a very low cost and low-risk basis. More coming soon…


Is it a Group, is it a Website, is it a Forum, or is it a Bird?
Please make sure you complete the survey at rail-connections.com by 17 Oct 2017 and all will be revealed soon…
