Why we exhibited at the RIA innovation conference

RIA Innovation Conference, March 2019

As our Railway Industry Association (RIA) membership now moves into its third year, I thought it would be time to exhibit our work at the UK’s most innovative railway conference… the Railway Industry Association’s innovation conference.

The WillB exhibition stand was positioned in the main hall, just to the side of the buffet area. Here I was delighted to meet up with a number of clients from Network Rail, RSSB, TfL, NSAR, UKKRIN, 3Squared, and Porterbrook.

RIA’s innovation conference has been running for many years and is primarily open to members of the Railway Industry Association to exhibit and attend. I say primarily because this year is the first time that non-members could attend. However, with their new introductory membership fee, starting from £875 a year, it seems better value to be a member than not.
