Monorailex 2023

A Forum for Ideas


The International Monorail Association is excited to invite you to join its 15th annual conference, Monorailex 2023, scheduled to be held in São Paulo, Brazil on October 20 through 22, 2023 with kind support of Metro São Paulo.

Monorailex 2023 is composed of presentations of scholarly papers and expert lectures sharing their experience with the professional audience. This year also simultaneously translated into Portuguese for on-site participants.

A special feature of our conference will be again the subsequent “Technical Visits” on Monday and Tuesday (October 23 and 24) this time to monorail lines 15 and 17 of São Paulo Metro and to the construction site of AEROMOVEL at Guarulhos airport. On operating Line 15 – Silver, plans include a ride on the train, a visit to the nearby construction site for the line extension, a visit to depot Oratório with maintenance facilities, and the operations centre. Additional visits are planned for Line 17 – Gold, which is under construction.

Best Practice and further Evolution of Monorails as Public Transportation Systems

Another highlight of the conference includes the in-house exhibition where sponsors have the opportunity to present their companies and service portfolios in detail to conference participants.

And, as always, Monorailex will provide the invaluable opportunity to network with other professionals in the field. For those who will not be able to attend on-site, we offer remote participation, as we have in the past.

An additional offer is our spouse program: for those traveling to São Paulo accompanied by their partner, we offer guided city tours for the weekend.

For any enquiries regarding the program, please contact:
We look forward to seeing you at Monorailex 2023!
