“NEXT STATION 2015”, the 5th International Conference on Railway Stations organised in close collaboration between UIC, the worldwide railway association, and Moroccan State Railways (ONCF), took place on 21 and 22 October 2015 in Marrakech.

“NEXT STATION 2015” in Marrakech was held under the overarching theme of “Rethinking stations for future intermobility”. Against this backdrop, senior managers addressed the design and building of stations with regard to intermodal synergies, managing passenger flows and access; from an environmental perspective look at technology and services, safety and security, and optimising stations in terms of business and retail; and from a cultural perspective look at the operation and management of stations and their development and changes in years to come, the relationship between stations and their urban environment, specific features of stations served by high speed trains, UIC’s work and universities, etc.
