Networking Events

We are excited to announce a series of satellite networking functions to accompany AusRAIL Live & On Demand.

Even though restrictions on business events and exhibitions have made us shift AusRAIL this year to a fully virtual event, we are excited to be able to offer you opportunities to socialize in a COVIDsafe gathering.

All functions will have limited capacity.
