About InfraTalk

InfraTalk is an online networking event like no other!

The innovative, virtual networking platform allows delegates easy access to engage with key representatives from Tier 1s across procurement, commercial and senior management teams. This format provides and promises a ‘pure networking’ environment for the railway infrastructure sector with NO PowerPoints, NO applications, and NO appointments.


Keynote Address

RFM is pleased to announce that the Keynote Address is Simon Blanchflower CBE, Chief Executive, East West Rail Company.

“I’m delighted to be speaking at this important industry event as we move forward with our ambitions to deliver the new East West Rail connection between Oxford and Cambridge. Here at East West Railway Company, we’ve been challenged by Government to be bold and do things differently – and at the same time create a railway that is safe and secure, cheaper for the taxpayer, better for customers, greener for the environment and delivered quicker than previous projects. As an organisation we look for innovation, ideas and expertise from within and outside the rail sector so that we are able to deliver a sustainable rail link that will serve our local communities for the next 100 years or more. I look forward to sharing the latest progress on East West Rail, discussing new ideas with delegates, and sowing the seeds for future collaborations.”
