RIA’s Innovation Conferences

The Railway Industry Association (RIA) is committed to stimulating innovation across the rail industry to improve the outcomes for rail users and create an environment for our members to offer innovative products and services.

Each year, RIA organises an Innovation Conference, usually in March, bringing together Members with clients, academia, industry and innovation bodies. Non-members are ‘by invitation’ only.  This is a major event in the calendar for members, key industry client bodies and other supporting organisations. Its purpose is to promote and share innovation, best practice, learning from other sectors and for all-important networking.

The 2017 conference was held on 15 & 16 March and addressed the key theme of ‘Embedding Innovation’ with a full programme of key speakers, seminars, workshops, exhibition and networking. RIA Members can find out more here, including access to the presentations.

A big thank you to Members and guests who made this year’s conference a resounding success and we are delighted to announce that the conference has been shortlisted for Conference of the Year by the Trade Association Forum.
