RBA: Marking a welcome return to live in-person events, the 24th Rail Business Awards will take place at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London’s west end on February 23 2022. The gala evening will be hosted by up-and-coming comedian Suzi Ruffell, voted best club comic at the 2019 Chortle Awards.


Enshrining her status as one of the most promising comedy talents of her generation, Suzi has enjoyed three sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival and racked up more than 16 million views of her gigs on social media.

As well as recording her show Keeping It Classy for the BBC, she has also appeared on Live at the Apollo, Mock The Week, Roast Battle, Ultimate Worrier and Comedy Central at the Comedy Store. Suzi is also a regular on Radio 4 panel shows The News Quiz and The Now Show, and she co-hosts the hit podcast Like Minded Friends with Tom Allen.

Widely considered to be one of the best networking opportunities in the UK rail industry calendar, the long-established Rail Business Awards brings together industry leaders, politicians and CEOs to celebrate excellence across the UK rail sector.

Organised by Railway Gazette Events, the Rail Business Awards recognise the work done day-in, day-out to keep passengers and freight on the move, as well as the research and innovation taking place as suppliers and operators strive to improve performance and efficiency, creating the foundations for the railway of the future. With 19 awards up for contention, this year’s shortlist includes a wide mix of businesses large and small, representing all parts of the rail sector and its supply chain.

Tables are selling fast as the UK government’s Covid-19 restrictions are eased, with more than 350 attendees already confirmed. There’s just three weeks to go, but there is still time to secure your place for an unforgettable evening, as we celebrate the achievements of our industry with the best in the business. Book here.
