Follow Us

Virtually everyone who visits, lives or works in London will use one of our services and every one of those journeys matters to us.We are here to keep London working and growing, and to make life in the Capital better. But a rapidly growing population means achieving this goal is more challenging than ever.

Currently, 8.4 million people live in the Capital. This is expected to become 10 million in the 2030s. We must carry on supporting this growth if London’s success is to continue.

We also have to balance delivering our services with one of the biggest savings and efficiency programmes in the public sector. Our success depends on Government support through grants and borrowing, our fare payers, developing our commercial income and achieving our efficiency targets.

Follow Us

“All change” is a phrase that every rail passenger is used to hearing. But it’s now a phrase that has special resonance throughout the UK rail industry, as the move toward the ‘Digital Railway’ of the future gathers pace – just at the time when many of the industry’s workforce are approaching retirement age.
Both government and industry alike recognise that this combination of technological and demographic pressure needs a very clear strategy. Only by addressing training and recruitment needs now can we ensure that the UK can draw upon a highly-skilled talent pool in rail engineering – and create a truly world-leading 21st century rail network.
With immediate needs on the timetable too, such as expansion of the workforce to maintain new fleets, the response to the challenge has been a unique and ambitious public/private partnership between government agencies and private enterprise: the National Training Academy for Rail (NTAR).

Official Venue: NEC

Birmingham B40 1NT tel: +44(0)121 780 4141
It’s fair to say a lot has changed since HM The Queen officially opened the NEC in 1976. We’ve grown significantly in size and reputation for starters, to become the UK’s number one venue of choice for organisers, exhibitors and visitors. We originally had seven exhibition halls - today we have 20. Not to mention 34 conference suites and a host of additional outdoor spaces. It’s not been easy though. For 40 years we’ve challenged, questioned and pushed our industry to ensure we continue to evolve and embrace change because only by doing so can we ensure our customers can too. It’s an approach that works, as our flexible spaces now play host to over six million guests and 500 events every year. Some small, some big, some massive, but all delivered with the same attention to detail and drive for innovation as our first Spring Fair all those years ago.

WHAT THEY SAY ...

Our company is world leader on business events organisation on different technology areas such as Simulation - Biotechnology for different set of industries including O&G - Nuclear Energy. Some of our delegates experience as follows:
