The RailStaff Awards 2022

RailStaff Awards 2022

Information about the event

RailStaff Awards Celebration is back on! - Thursday 24th November 2022

After careful consideration and consultation, due to the current ongoing situation, and in an effort to keep our guests and staff safe, we made the difficult decision to postpone the RailStaff Awards 2021 and put on a bigger and better event this year. 

All current and new nominations will be carried forward to our 2022 event which will take place on Thursday 24th November 2022 at the NEC, Birmingham. So please continue to nominate! We can’t wait to see you all there celebrating and partying into the early hours!

We miss you all, and we look forward to welcoming you all back! We will continue to work hard to bring you the unique events you love.

We want to say a special thank you to the nominees and sponsors. It’s these individuals and companies who have gone above and beyond to bring the Rail Industry together.

The RailStaff Awards has been recognising the extraordinary achievements of rail industry employees since 2007.  

The ceremony shows appreciation for the people who deliver the railway - from drivers to cleaners, and engineers to station staff. Often these are stories of lives saved, careers turned around and adversity conquered.

In 2019, The RailStaff Awards saw over 900 people in attendance, 1,300 nominations and 100,000 votes. 

Join us this year as we honour more unsung heroes of the railway.
