Have you been thinking about diversifying into rail, but not sure where to start? Then join us this Thursday, 18th February for the first of our “Get into Rail” sessions. In partnership with Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education (BCRRE), our introductory session will explore “the route to market” and will be packed full of practical tips and helpful information on everything you need to know.

During this hour-long session, you will hear from Gillian Scott, Scheme Manager for the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) who will explain how to navigate the RISQS process easily. Neil Walker from the Railway Industry Association (RIA) will address export opportunities and Rose Garber will discuss the membership benefits of RIA. Natig Asadullaev from Mack Brooks and Jenny Illingsworth from BCRRE will cover rail trade fairs and how to raise the profile of your business within the rail sector and Robert Hopkin, BCRRE will conclude the hour with a review of the rail sector trade media and trade associations.
