About Rail North: Leeds 2021

We are pleased to announce that we will be continuing our Rail North series as part of our physical event programme 2021.

Hosted at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds on 19th October, we will be bringing together key figures to discuss the region’s ongoing priorities, including the recent draft decarbonisation strategy which sets out ambitious plans to tackle carbon emissions in the North of England.

With panel discussions, presentations and specialist seminars the event will be full of insights into levelling up the region and what steps are needed to address the North-South divide. The day will also give the supply chain an opportunity to re-connect with decision-makers and help re-enforce your commercial credentials to one of the UK’s most exciting projects.
