Ricardo returns as Headline Sponsor of the Rail Business Awards tonight, marking the fourth year in succession of our direct involvement.
“We’ve always enjoyed our participation with the RBAs,” says Paul Seller, Managing Director of Ricardo’s global rail business.
“From our headline role and sponsorship of various categories over the years, to our participation on judging panels and even picking up an award ourselves, we’ve always seen it as the main event of the industry calendar.”
This year, Ricardo are also the sponsors of the inaugural “Lifetime Achievement Award” which will close proceedings on the night.
“We think this new award is a great addition to the programme”, says Paul. “It’s an opportunity to give due credit to an individual sitting in the audience who has served our industry with distinction over many years. It’s a nice personal touch on which to end the evening.”
The annual Rail Business Awards (RBAs) are hosted each year at the Park Lane Hotel in central London, with over 600 attendees representing the entire industry.
Categories awarded during the evening include ‘Asset Management’, ‘Digital Technology’, ‘Sustainability’, ‘Infrastructure Project, ‘Innovation’ and ‘Operator of the year.”
The new 'Lifetime Achievement Award' - which closes the ceremony this year - will be presented to the winner on stage by Olivier André, Consulting Director UK.
The evening will commence with an opening address from Paul Seller.
