About Welsh Transport Forum 2021

Dress Code: Black Tie

Now in its fourth year, this well established networking dinner will bring over 400 people from TfW, Network Rail, the Welsh Government and other key stakeholders to discuss the region’s key transport plans and priorities. It’s also a perfect opportunity to network with some of the senior decision makers from rail’s supply chain who are at the forefront of delivering these ambitious plans.

This is a must attend event for any organisation who is looking to compete for, and win business in Wales.
