Events & Information


RIA Membership provides networking opportunities, exclusive events and the latest insights in the industry.

RIA Events

At RIA, we hold around 50 networking events a year, a number of which are exclusive to members. Our events are not only a good way to get up to speed with what is going on in the industry, but also great networking opportunities. 

Our key events include:

  • RIA’s Annual Conference in the Autumn – this is a major event in the rail supply industry’s business and social calendar; we are always joined by several high-profile industry leaders.
  • RIA’s Innovation Conference in the Spring – a two-day event with interactive, plenary and networking sessions, plus an exhibition; this always attracts high quality participants, from within the rail industry, academia and beyond.
  • Unlocking Innovation - which are held in different locations around the UK every two months or so; they are free to attend and open to non-members.
