About Rail Cymru Conference 2024

­­

The rail industry is quickly evolving, and Wales has the potential to lead the way in driving forward innovative and sustainable transport solutions.
Rail Cymru Conference 2024 will bring together over 300 leading experts, decision-makers, and stakeholders from across the rail industry to share their insights and expertise.

It follows on from a successful 2023 event, which narrowed-down focus on the railway, with speeches from Lee Waters MS – Deputy Minister for Climate Change, James Jackson – Industry Programme Director from Network Rail, Natalie Rees – Head of Sustainable Development and Climate Change at Transport for Wales, and David Beer from Transport Focus.

The key plans and priorities raised included achieving our net zero targets, promoting diversification, boosting collaboration, enabling more investment, and encouraging innovation.

As we continue into CP7, it is vital that the industry offers value for money for the taxpayer, through innovative project delivery and new ways of thinking.

The well-established Rail Cymru Conference is your opportunity to network directly with influential decision-makers, understand the key plans and priorities for Wales and explore how you can bid for, and win business, along with supporting the principal contractors.

Join us to explore how we can work together to create a brighter future for rail. Register your interest in the form here, email enquiry@peloton-events.co.uk, or phone 0161 519 8950 to find out more.
