Countdown to London 10th March 2022
Organised jointly by

A railway event – run by railway people, for railway infrastructure companies

January 2022 RIN update – looking ahead to RIN London – 10th March 2022

Importantly we are a railway event run by railway people – we do not make a living from running rail events – hence why we have a low exhibitor price because we only look to cover our costs.

Our event is organised by Jobson James Rail – the UK market leader in insurance and contractual advice for railway companies – supported by the Railway Industry Association (RIA).

We bring the rail infrastructure industry together in one room for networking events, with no distractions of speeches or presentations, at a very competitive cost to suit railway companies of all budgets – so they can meet each other and potential new customers to grow their businesses.

Our last event
Our last event was RIN York event at York Racecourse on Thursday 18 November 2021, where we had a footfall of over 400 rail professionals, 80 exhibitors and more than 200 railway companies represented. It was fantastic to see so many railway friends at the event after a long gap. All visitors enjoyed free bacon, sausage, and egg rolls, free tea and coffee for the duration of the event.

We had fantastic support from the rail infrastructure community particularly from larger rail companies and buyers Alstom, Amey, Balfour Beatty , BAM, DB, Fraser Nash, Hitachi, Hitachi ABB, Indian Railways, Murphy, LB Foster, LNER, Network Rail, Northern, Serco, Siemens, Speedy, Story Contracting, Unipart, VolkerLaser and VolkerRail.

Looking ahead
We look ahead to our RIN London event at the Business Design Centre near Angel Tube in London on Thursday 10 March 2022.

This event will be a longer event format than our other previous events. By popular demand the event will open for longer from 9:30am to 2pm (rather than a 12:30pm finish) to allow for more networking time.

There will be a RIA-organised Meet the Buyer aspect to the event and in due course we will advertise details of how exhibitors can apply to meet some of the biggest buyers in the rail industry. This will involve exhibitors at RIN London being able to apply by application form to meet our list of buyers which are yet to be announced.

The application form will be able to be accessed from this home page shortly once RIA have confirmed the list of buyers. The link will be added to this page and will also be visible on the RIA website. Watch this space for the link at the end of January 2022.

At our events Exhibitors can book their stand for the price indicated for each event. Each exhibitor gets a 2m table and 2 chairs – so plenty of room for pop-up banners and products.

Remember that exhibitors (and visitors) must enrol all of their staff as visitors so you all get your badges emailed to you. Visitors can enrol and visit for free. Exhibitors and visitor railway companies can bring as many staff along to RIN as you like.

See you all in March!
