RIN to form new partnership with the Railway Industry Association (RIA)

Jobson James Rail and the Railway Industry Association (RIA) are announcing a new partnership for the highly popular Rail Infrastructure Networking (RIN) events. The RIN events, one of the fastest growing rail industry forums for those involved in rail infrastructure, will now be jointly organised between Jobson James Rail and RIA.

Keven Parker, Rail Director of Jobson James and creator of the RIN events said: “RIN Events is now an established brand in the rail industry and we are very excited at the new working partnership with the Railway Industry Association. They bring a wealth of contacts and experience to help bring in more buyers and take the event to a new level.

Our last event in Derby attracted 440 rail professionals from 250 railway companies. Exhibitors and visitors to RIN have always asked us to increase its popularity with buyers and service and product providers so we know that, with the valuable assistance of RIA, the event will continue to grow and become even more successful. We are all thrilled to have them on board.”

Gaynor Pates Membership, Events & Business Administration Director at the Railway Industry Association said: “RIA is delighted to become joint organiser of RIN Events, which provide great networking opportunities for rail companies looking to grow their businesses. We look forward to working with Jobson James Rail to develop these events even further, introducing new contacts and organisations to this great initiative.”

The next RIN Infrastructure Networking Event will run in York on 22nd November at York Racecourse from 930am to 1230pm. The event is nearly full and will have nearly 100 stand spaces at exceptionally low prices of just £150 per exhibitor table.

RIN hosts biggest event yet at Derby with more than 440 attendees from 250 companies

Rail Infrastructure Networking (RIN) hosted its biggest event since its inception two years ago, as RIN Derby saw more than 440 rail professionals attend from all over the country.

The event returned to Derby County’s Pride Park following its first Derby event in 2017 – with almost double the number of attendees and many new exhibitors. Hosted in a city with strong ties to the rail technology industry, this location has always been extremely popular as professionals meet to stimulate business opportunities.

The event’s organiser, Keven Parker of Jobson James Rail, said: “We are delighted to see how quickly RIN is growing. Since we founded the event in 2016, we have heard success stories from countless rail companies that have been able to foster fruitful partnerships through new connections made at RIN.

“RIN events are low cost, at just £150 to take an exhibitor table. The main cost is people’s time, which is more than offset by the business development opportunities created through meeting so many innovative rail companies and buyers who want to work and deliver together. We expect that our next event in York in November 2018 will sell out in October – many tables have already been sold since Thursday’s success at Derby.”

RIN events are priced to cover the events’ costs and administration only and are not operated by a large event company. They are organised by Jobson James Rail, which offers specialist insurance solutions for companies and individuals in the rail sector. It is one of the UK’s leading free networking events for the rail industry, with quarterly events held across the UK. The events were initially created for Jobson James Rail’s clients to meet up and network, but they have grown considerably every time.

The next event will be held at York Racecourse on 22nd November, with the first event for 2019 already planned in London on 28th February.

RIN returns to the North West

Rail Infrastructure Networking (RIN) has had a successful return to the North West, bringing its free rail networking event to Wigan after its first event in Crewe last year.

The event took place on 17th May at Wigan’s DW Stadium and was attended by hundreds of railway company representatives.

Since it was first organised by the specialist rail insurance broker Jobson James Rail in 2016, RIN has grown rapidly. This is down to its unique offering to the rail industry: a free event created purely for rail infrastructure companies to network and expand their businesses, with no speeches.

Director of Jobson James Rail, Keven Parker, said: “We have seen a surge in popularity from rail professionals across all facets of the industry. The event has doubled in size since we came to Crewe last year which is great to see.

“We have received a lot of positive feedback from all attendees, with many people already securing new opportunities through our events.

“It is clear to see that we are developing an exciting reputation as the UK’s only free rail networking event and I would like to thank all those who sponsor the event for helping to make that happen.”

The next RIN event will be held on 6th September in Derby’s Pride Park. You can register to attend the event for free by clicking here, or book an exhibitor space for just £150 by clicking here.

RIN continues to grow with successful event in York

Rail Infrastructure Networking’s (RIN) most recent event in York was a huge success, with delegate and exhibitor numbers reaching record levels.

The event took place at the Network Rail Training Centre in York, just down the road from the National Railway Museum and York station. Hundreds of visitors made the most of this opportunity to meet other rail industry professionals and foster new business partnerships, and feedback from attendees has been extremely positive.

RIN continues to be one of the UK’s leading free networking events for the rail industry, with quarterly events held across the UK. The next event will take place at the Derby County Pride Park in Derby on 30th November 2017.

Third RIN event takes place in London with biggest attendance yet

The third Rail Infrastructure Networking (RIN) event took place last week in London, attracting over 150 rail professionals from across the UK.

RIN is a not-for-profit quarterly networking opportunity, organised by Jobson James Rail – a business which offers specialist insurance solutions for companies and individuals in the rail sector. Each event takes place in a different UK city with specific ties to the UK rail network.

This event took place at London’s Camden Centre; a Grade II listed building renowned for its art deco features. London was an obvious choice for a city to host a RIN event, both for its world-famous, bustling railway stations, and due to the number of significant rail projects taking place within the capital throughout the next few years.

Director of Jobson James Rail, Keven Parker, said: “Attendance at RIN has grown quarter after quarter, and this event has continued this trend. We have seen a surge in popularity from professionals across all facets of the industry which is fantastic to see.

“We have received a lot of positive feedback from attendees, with many people already thanking us for the new opportunities that have been unearthed through networking at the event. It is clear to see that we are developing an exciting reputation as the UK’s only free rail networking event.”

The next RIN event will be held on 4th May in Crewe at the Alexandra Stadium.
