This week we attended AusRAIL and had an exhibition stand at AusRAIL PLUS. Thank you to the many members, stakeholders and suppliers who visited our stand to say hello, enquire about our products or services, or follow up after Cris's RISSB update. We really enjoyed meeting you and it was good to catch up with everyone face to face after so many months apart.
For those who are awaiting the outcome of our prize draws, we'll be announcing the lucky winners in The Whistle Board next week.
And, if you'd like to continue your expo conversation, please send an email to email@example.com.
