High Speed Rail Industry Leaders’ fourth annual conference will take place in Manchester on Tuesday 18 June. Register here to secure your space.

Through a programme of keynote addresses and panel discussions, this free conference will focus on bringing together supporters of HS2 and promoting the connection between HS2, Northern Powerhouse Rail and Midlands Connect. It will also demonstrate the far-reaching benefits of high speed rail, connecting eight of the ten biggest cities in the country and 30 million people, providing better links for northern cities.

The event will be chaired by Sarah-Jane Mee, co-host of Sky News Sunrise, and joining us will be key policy makers and senior industry and local authority figures from across the UK.
