UK Rail Industry Awards 2017 – entries now open

Entries for the UK Rail Industry Awards 2017 are now open.

Set to be the biggest event yet, the UK Rail Industry Awards bring together decision makers from across the industry to meet, network and celebrate success.

Last year, more than 130 individual organisations sent in over 300 entries in an attempt to scoop an award across the 23 wide-ranging categories.

883 UKRIA

RTM’s Roy Rowlands, director of the UK Rail Industry Awards, said: “Being shortlisted alone, not to mention winning one of the coveted awards, will raise the profile of your organisation in front of an audience of key rail industry decision makers and professionals responsible for running the UK rail industry.

“If you have a story to tell that’s worthy of the attention of the UK Rail Industry Awards’ pan-industry panel of judges and would like to win one of these coveted awards then enter today.”

The entry deadline is 25 September 2016. Each category is free to enter: www.ukria.com 

The winners will be announced at the black-tie awards ceremony at Battersea Evolution, London, on 9 February 2017. During last year’s award ceremony, the 1,100-strong audience raised a staggering £30,000 for the event's chosen charity, ChildLine.
