About the event

The event begins on 25 June with an evening reception at 18:00 with presentations from industry leaders. The following day, 26 June, is a full day’s agenda. You’ll hear from those who operate our railway, innovate within industry and are planning the future for the UK railway digital transformation.

Attendance is free of charge.

The event encourages delegates to learn and contribute to what must be at the centre of all the rail industry’s activities – delivering a better service for passengers and freight users.

We, as a rail industry, are presented with a great opportunity – let’s get this right! Our railway customers will see early and clear benefits, in terms of increased rail system capacity and resilience, and reduced reactionary delays whilst train operators and their owning groups see greater certainty around future costs, and increased customer satisfaction.

Together we can achieve this with early and constructive engagement with the wider supply chain, and a sustained partnership between train operators, local Network Rail routes and local digital rail deployment projects.

Registration is open now via the RIA website (you do not have to be a RIA member to register). Please use the links on this page to book your place.

We look forward to meeting you in Birmingham, at what’s going to be our best conference yet!
