About the Association of Railway Executives

The Association of Railway Executives gives our industry’s top leaders a unique chance to meet and discuss important topical issues.

Membership of ARE is typically limited to Directors plus their nominated direct reports. Members are invited to attend four events per year.

We are supported by The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport where you can find links to rail sector specific events, relevant qualifications, training and courses.

Our events are held four times a year in Central London and are a rare opportunity to network with a wide range of other senior leaders in an exclusive environment.
