RIA Annual Conference 2022

10th November 2022

RIA’s Award-winning Annual Conference is a much-regarded highlight of the UK rail calendar and 2022 will be no exception. RIA members will have the possibility of meeting face-to-face with clients, industry leaders, influencers, international guests and policy makers.

This year’s Conference focuses on the theme of “Growing rail in a year of transition”. Over the space of two days, the programme will combine keynote speeches, panel discussions, interview sessions and unique networking opportunities.

“More so than ever, the rail industry must come together to address the challenges we face, so it’s fantastic that the Railway Industry Association annual conference is bringing together so many members. I’m really looking forward to speaking with you all and exchanging ideas on how we can ensure a safe, green, sustainable recovery from the pandemic and regenerate the UK economy.”
