Railfuture holds two national conferences each year, usually in the summer and autumn (in addition to its national AGM for members). The conferences are competitively priced, to be within rail users' price range, and are open to everyone. Railfuture members are usually offered a chance to attend conferences at a discounted rate if booked early; for non-members there's often a discounted 'book and join' package.
