Meetings are held six times per year, and all feature networking opportunities, luncheon and guest speakers. Three events are at central London venues and include major industry awards events – the Golden Spanners, Golden Whistles and Railway Innovation Awards. Three regional conferences are also held each year in the North of England, West of England/Wales and the Midlands.
