National Rail Conference

June 20-21 2018

The rebranded annual National Rail Conference moves to Rail Live.

The National Rail Conference, organised by RAIL magazine, is taking a step up this year, both in content and location. Rebranded as the National Rail Convention, the conference programme will take place over both days of Rail Live 2018, from a bespoke suite in the internal exhibition structure on-site.

The National Rail Convention will bring the best content presented by the best speakers in the country.

Each session is designed to provide relevant and practical knowledge that will make a difference to your business when you get back to your desk the next day.

Between the main sessions on the first day, Women in Rail will hold a session on the role effective leadership plays in a successful business. While, on the second day Young Rail Professionals will hold a ‘My Career’ session with experienced rail professionals giving advice and inspiration to new members of the industry and providing an opportunity for them to ask questions.
