RailStaff Awards: A new kingdom

We’ve announced the date, presented the host, revisited last year’s big winner as well as entertainment of yesteryear, and now we’re ready to reveal the theme of the 2019 RailStaff Awards.

Continuing from 2018, it’s a place of mystery and adventure, but it’s no concept of the imagination. 

It’s an oasis of beauty that fuses African and European culture and leaves visitors mesmerised by its rich landscapes.

Fear not if you’re yet to book your summer escape as come November 28 the sights and sounds of Morocco are coming to the RailStaff Awards. 

In for a treat

Imagine the bustling souk and giant archways of Marrakesh. The minarets towering into the sky. The vibrancy of the marketplace with intriguing characters brushing by. It’s all coming to Birmingham’s NEC. 

Gemma King, of event organiser Rail Media, said: “I’m so excited to announce this year’s theme. Although the awards are the night’s main attraction, the new themes and the world class entertainment are always so much fun to plan. I can’t wait to see the vision for 2019 come to life.

“If you were impressed by the enchanted kingdom with its cavernous woodland, acrobatic pixies, imps and goat men and sky of mystical orbs, you’ll be in for a treat when we transport you to the Kingdom of Morroco.”

Free tickets

The clock is now ticking until nominations close for the RailStaff Awards – so don’t miss your chance to put a colleague forward before the deadline on October 4.

The awards are open to everyone in the industry and recognise the achievements of both the most experienced professionals and those at the very start of their careers, including engineers, recruiters, drivers and project managers.

If you do nominate someone, we’ll enter you into a prize draw to win a pair of tickets on one of our VIP tables as a way of saying ‘thank you’ to you too. 

But whether you’re nominating or being nominated, make sure to grab your ticket to the rail industry’s greatest night for recognising its people. It’s going to be another night of making memories.
