10 Smart Reasons to Attend the
2022 NRC Conference

It’s not too late to make plans to attend the NRC 2022 Conference and NRC-REMSA Exhibition. There’s still time to register for this signature industry event in Phoenix, AZ, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa, January 5 through 8, 2022.

The appeal of spending a few days in Arizona in January is obvious. But there are many more smart reasons to attend. Here are 10 to consider:

  1. Get inside information from railway engineering leaders with Class I, short line and transit railways about their 2022 capital plans.

  2. Network at the industry’s most valuable conference and exhibition. You’ll have an opportunity to connect with more than 1,000 leaders involved in the railway construction, maintenance and supply sectors. Don’t forget your business cards.

  3. Hear from Union Pacific’s President & CEO Lance Fritz about the state of UP, the railroad industry and the broader supply-chain and business outlook.

  4. Gain detailed safety information and analysis from Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) officials on Part 243 training rule, Part 219 rule on mandatory drug and alcohol testing, Part 214 Roadway Worker Protection (RWP), and more.

  5. Hear from a cross-section in the industry about how sustainability has become a fundamental business requirement. Expect insights into industry best practices and practical action plans to address this trend.

  6. Attend the Signals & Communications panel discussion, where you will hear from Class I S&C movers and shakers about lessons learned, best practices and what’s down the track.

  7. Listen to a wide-ranging discussion among government affairs leaders recapping the impact of legislative activities on rail, including the new infrastructure bill signed into law, the budget reconciliation package, and the Fiscal Year 2022 appropriations bill.

  8. Develop an actionable gameplan for the year. Attendees routinely report information they learn from the NRC conference is vital to mapping out their company’s yearlong plans.

  9. Identify industry superstars as the NRC announces its annual awards for safety, projects of the year, field employee of the year and inductees into its Hall of Fame.

  10. Capitalize on this unique opportunity to learn, network and advocate on behalf of the industry. No other conference offers all this, and much more.

Review the conference schedule to see the entire lineup.

You may be busy with holiday plans now but, come January, you will want to be with other industry leaders at the NRC 2022 Conference and NRC-REMSA Exhibition.

Find out all you need to know to attend. We look forward to seeing you at this can’t-miss industry event.
