CAF UK Newport Factory Opening
On Friday 21st February 2020, Nimble Media Ltd had the honour of being the Event Organisers for the opening of the new CAF Manufacturing Facility in Newport. Officiated by HRH The Prince of Wales, stakeholders, clients and government representatives were invited to witness the grand opening of the site and were taken on tours of the manufacturing site to take a look behind the scenes at how the UK’s future rail fleets are built.
Nimble Media was approached by Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles (CAF) in 2017 to assist with their marketing and communications strategy for the rolling stock manufacturers UK & Ireland sector. Nimble Media have played a key part in breaking news from the company, including their acceptance to bid for the High Speed Two suppliers contract, their success in securing the order for the next Wales and Borders Rail Franchise and the announcement of their new manufacturing plant being built in Newport, South Wales.
The Big Rail Diversity Challenge
Launched in 2016, The Big Rail Diversity Challenge has adopted the apt tagline: ‘Where Krypton Factor meets It’s a Knockout’. The event hosts over 600 rail industry colleagues, in teams made up of both males and females, competing in a series of mental, physical and skill-based challenges promoting the business benefits attained when engaging a gender diverse workforce.
The event is suitable for all abilities and provides participants with the opportunity to network, team build and fundraise, whilst completing a series of fun gender-balanced team activities promoting Women in Rail’s key message: Gender Diversity: Better for People Better for Business Better for Rail.
The Women in Rail Awards
The Women in Rail Awards were first held to mark the fifth anniversary of the official launch of the Women in Rail group, showcasing and rewarding individuals and companies (large and small) who make a significant contribution to improving diversity and gender balance within the UK rail workforce. In just 8 weeks, the Nimble Media sales and marketing team achieved a complete sell out with 350 rail personnel in attendance from across the UK rail industry, attracting a cross section including key stakeholders and decision makers, infrastructure providers, operators, manufacturers, rolling stock companies, technical consultancy companies and suppliers to name a few.
In 2019, the second Women in Rail Awards was held at the historic Roundhouse in Camden, London to accommodate the demand received for attendance with a staggering 70% growth achieved the second awards was another sell out, with over 600 rail personnel attending the event, hosted by TV Presenter and STEM Ambassador, Rachel Riley.
Whilst the pandemic did not allow us to deliver a live event for 2020, Nimble Media worked with Women in Rail to produce a digital supplement, highlighting the winners and their achievements. The 2020 winners were then invited to join us for a celebration at the 2021 Awards, hosted by Broadcaster and TV Presenter, Naga Munchetty.
In 2022, Gemma Cairney, Broadcaster, Youth Rights Activist and Author welcomed over 700 guests back to the Roundhouse, to celebrate the growing EDI accomplishments within the UK rail industry.
Comments received by Adeline Ginn, Founder of Women in Rail were that Nimble Media delivered a slick, seamless event.

The Steam Special
