Rail Exec Gala Dinner 2016

Change Event

The Rail Exec Club

Rail Exec Gala - December

The executive networking club for rail professionals

The Rail Exec Gala held at the Roundhouse in Derby, is the final event in the Rail Exec calendar. It will host over 600 rail professionals who are interested in networking with like minded people.

Along with the networking event, we will also be announcing the winners of the Most Interesting Awards.

The awards that nobody can enter, nominations are derived from those articles in Rail Engineer, RailStaff and Global Rail News that the respective editors have deemed to be Interesting throughout the year. With the time period being 1 October 2015 to 30 September 2016, the initial list of suggestions is filling up. This ‘longlist’ will get abbreviated to a shortlist of six nominations in each category during October, and then a panel of independent industry judges will make their choices as to which of these are the Most Interesting for the year.

If you want to be seen in the right place at the right time, then the Rail Exec Gala is the place for you.
