The Railway Technical Society of Australasia (RTSA) cordially invites you to the return of our railway industry networking dinner in 2021.

We will be joined by keynote speaker Mr Frankie Carroll, Chief Executive Officer, Suburban Rail Loop Authority (SRLA), who took up the position on 27 January 2021.

For the first time in public, Mr Carroll will discuss the Suburban Rail Loop project and its future. The Suburban Rail Loop is a city-shaping project that will transform Victoria’s public transport system, revitalise Melbourne’s middle suburbs, and create a long pipeline of jobs.

The evening will include a seated dinner, drinks package, and presentations, accompanied by unrivalled opportunities for networking with industry leaders and key decision-makers.

We are pleased to offer special pricing exclusive to members of the RTSA.

COVID-19 note: Should additional government restrictions affect the successful running of the event, the dinner will be postponed to a suitable later date. Additional mandated restrictions to venue capacity may result in some cancellations and refunds to selected attendees, processed in the reverse order of the original bookings.
