#UKRIA2018 is coming to town

Abnormally freezing-cold temperatures, brightly lit town centres packed with a frenzy of shoppers, and busy markets cooking up endless servings of German sausages could only mean one thing: Christmas is now just around the corner!

And what better way to celebrate the occasion with your colleagues before the office breaks up for holidays than by reserving them a place at next year’s UK Rail Industry Awards (UKRIA)?

A UKRIA invitation makes the perfect gift from boss to employee, and our exclusive VIP packages are the ideal way to entertain a potential client.

By attending UKRIA with your team or client, you’ll be taking part in the year’s biggest and most extravagant rail industry celebration. It’s an exclusive opportunity to get to know more about the most incredible innovations taking place across the sector, network with key leaders and celebrate the successes of companies just like yours – all over a glass or two of bubbly, of course.

Next year’s event, which will take place on 22 March at London’s fantastic Battersea Evolution, will also be opened by none other than HS2 Ltd’s chief executive Mark Thurston, who will continue to build on the tradition of excellent keynote speakers attending UKRIA. This year, for example, the event was helmed by Network Rail’s Sir Peter Hendy.

And as always, the companies and individuals who are currently up for an award – check out the shortlist here – will be judged by our all-star judging panel.

To attend the celebration, which next year features a theme of Casino Royale – and is, as always, a black-tie event – simply contact the team on 0161 833 6320, drop us an email or click here to submit your enquiry.

But be quick, as places and sponsorship opportunities are selling out fast. Don’t leave your office’s Christmas tree gathering dust without a UKRIA package to adorn it – get in touch now!
