March 2021 RIN update

Its now a little clearer that HM Govt will likely be allowing corporate events to go ahead later this year…..assuming no further COVID-19 unwelcome surprises.

However we can see Autumn being a very busy time for the rail calendar..

Railtex has been put back from May to early September and our own Rolling Stock Networking Event has been put back from July to 30 September.

We are concerned that if we run a RIN event in September then we will not get the footfall that our exhibitors would like as many in the industry will be recovering from 3 days at Railtex.

We do not wish to take money from any exhibitor unless we are certain that the event will be a success for them.

So our 1st event this year will be at York Racecourse on Thu 18 November 2021.

The event will follow the usual format – set up from 730am that day.

Early birds will get free bacon sausage and egg rolls and there will be free tea and coffee for the duration of the event.

Open hours will be 930am to 1230pm and we will vacate by 115pm sharp.

Free to attend for those that book up and register their space.

Exhibitors can book their stand for £250+VAT. Each exhibitor gets a 2m table and 2 chairs so plenty of room for pop up banners and products.

Obviously if something changes with the virus we will be forced to review our plans and we will try and keep you all up to date on this website.

Our priority will be to run a safe event for all and we hope that by then there will be no requirement for mask wearing and social distancing.

Our last York event (2019) had a footfall of 480 so we are hopeful that the rail industry family will return to support us.

The website can now take your bookings. Remember that exhibitors (and visitors) must enrol all of their staff as visitors so you all get your badges emailed to you.

Exhibitors and visitor railway companies can bring as many staff along to RIN as you like.

We hope that our 2022 events will go back to our regular calendar and we will be able to run a RIA Met the Buyer event within the London and Derby events.

In respect of 2022 events here the dates for our planned events::

London will be on Thu 10 March 2022 at the Business Design Centre, Islington (Angel Tube), priced at £275+VAT per exhibitor.

Wigan will be on Thu 12 May 2022 at the DW Stadium. priced at £195+VAT per exhibitor (but subject to Wigan FC coming out of administration)..

Derby will be on Thu 8 September 2022 at the Derby Arena. priced at £260+VAT per exhibitor.

York will be on Thu 17 November 2022 at the York Racecourse. priced at £260+VAT per exhibitor.

Our RIN team feel very positive to get our events back up and running so best wishes from Keven, Clare, Tim , Mave and John and we will hope to see you all at York in November.
