Knowing that you don’t know is one thing. Not knowing what you don’t know is worse…
Similar to good event management, a crucial element of business development is planning and attention to detail.
Corporate communication is a key element in your content marketing plan. It drives the consistent messages, both internally and externally, you wish to convey.
Of the many elements you need to get right in running an event, tight organisation is arguably the most important. Once the objective of the event has been established, you can’t afford to leave any stone unturned in the planning, organisation and execution.
Figuring out what your clients value, developing your offer accordingly and delivering the right and consistent message to them at the right time.
Whether you’re supplying editorial or taking up one of our standard or bespoke advertising packages, we take your messages to the people that need to hear them through a choice of publishing channels.

With over 500 guests from across the industry, Dinner at the Roundhouse is an unmissable gathering of rail decision-makers from the highest levels – including manufacturers, suppliers, operators, maintainers, senior railwaymen, politicians and MPs.
For 2018 we were delighted to welcome Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson – 16-time Paralympic medallist, author, TV personality and champion of accessibility – as our host for the evening.
Tanni’s achievements both on and off the track have inspired thousands, and since being elevated to the House of Lords in 2010 she has served as a crossbench peer with specialist interest in disability, health, sport and education.
Our keynote speakers for 2018 were two of the industry’s most dynamic railwaymen:
Phil Hufton, Managing Director and Chairman of Bombardier Transportation UK, took to the stage to give his first major industry address since taking charge of the rolling stock manufacturer and rail equipment supplier in October 2018.
Also the Bombardier’s Head of Projects UK, Phil was until very recently Network Rail’s Managing Director, England and Wales,and began his railway career in Derby. Since then he has also held senior management positions at London Underground, including the role of Chief Operating Officer, and has worked on complex manufacturing and engineering enterprises around the world.
Phil was joined by Andy Milner, CEO of Amey – one of the world’s foremost engineering and technical consultancies. As part of the Ferrovial Group, his organisation has worked on some of the most demanding and innovative rail projects around the globe.
In recent years, Andy has masterminded a significant restructuring of the business, further developing its expertise in asset management and investing significant sums in digital solutions to solve the complex challenges of today while also helping to create the railways and mass transit systems of the future.
It is the tradition that Dinner at the Roundhouse’s keynote speakers are drawn from the very highest calibre of the profession – recent honoured guests have included Wick Moorman, CEO of Amtrak, Bombardier Transportation CEOs Laurent Troger and Lutz Bertling, Brian Souter, Founder and Chairman of Stagecoach, Andrew Wolstenholme, CEO of London Crossrail (twice), Richard Parry-Jones, Chairman of Network Rail, Tim O’Toole, CEO of First Group, and Richard Brown, former Chief Executive Officer of Eurostar.
Additionally, this event has so far proudly helped to raise over £130,000 for a variety of charities,proving the astonishing generosity that exists within the railway sector and its incredible power to drive change and help those in need locally, nationally and around the world.
