Railfuture usually holds two national conferences each year, normally 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.
Details of other internal Railfuture meetings, open only to elected/selected members, are here: Rf-internal.
