On 12 and 13.10.2023 we held our 50th IBS Congress in Bressanone, South Tyrol, Italy!
The start of the exciting two days was our exploration of the Brenner Base Tunnel – with helmet, boots and high-visibility vest we went deep inside. Deep inside the Brenner Base Tunnel we got an exclusive look behind the scenes of tunnel construction. At the Franzensfeste fortress, we learned all the facts and stories about the construction in a workshop.
In the evening, we were then allowed to immerse ourselves in the culinary world of South Tyrol.
The next morning, at the beginning of day 2, the general meeting was on the agenda. Exciting times for IBS! There is a fresh wind and new perspectives, which we are all very excited about. A special moment of the congress was the signing of the MoU between the FERMERCI and IBS associations.
A big thank you goes to our guest speakers from TAILWIND Shipping Lines, SBB Cargo International and Rail Cargo Group. Their presentations inspired us and brought new insights.
Another thank you goes of course to all participants for the exciting exchange!
We are looking forward to the Spring Congress 2024 in Helsinki.
