ABC (Australia) - - SHOW PROGRAM -

Bea­cons­field Mine dis­as­ter survivor Todd Russell will share his ex­pe­ri­ences with del­e­gates on day one

THE AUS­TRALA­SIA BUS & COACH EXPO is set to be the in­dus­try event of the year with more than 100 ex­hibitors gath­er­ing to­gether to show­case the best of their prod­ucts and ser­vices.

The event kicks off at the Gold Coast Con­ven­tion & Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre on Sun­day, Septem­ber 24, with the Volvo Wel­come Re­cep­tion.

The expo will of­fi­cially open at 9am on Mon­day, Septem­ber 25, and run for a full two days, with the Optare Expo Din­ner to be held on Mon­day night.

The din­ner is now sold out, but reg­is­tra­tions are still avail­able for the free trade show it­self and the wel­come re­cep­tion.

Queens­land Premier An­nasta­cia Palaszczuk has been in­vited to open day one of the trade show and Bea­cons­field Mine dis­as­ter survivor Todd Russell will share his ex­pe­ri­ences with del­e­gates from 9.30am on day one.

Yu­tong has a new coach to launch at 10.30am and from then on there’s some­thing for ev­ery­one, from dis­cus­sions on bus com­mu­ni­ca­tions plat­forms and fire sup­pres­sion in the morn­ing to chain of re­spon­si­bil­ity (CoR), the lat­est driver as­sis­tance tech­nol­ogy and the lat­est in wash bay equip­ment in the after­noon.

Day two will see tour­ing car cham­pion Dick John­son ad­dress the au­di­ence as guest speaker from 9.30am.

Trapeze Group cus­tomer suc­cess man­ager Kelly Crookes will ex­plain how to use your ex­ist­ing data to make choices that will help you save money and im­prove per­for­mance in the morn­ing. Trapeze Group plan­ning and sched­ul­ing prod­uct spe­cial­ist Grant Cof­fee will ex­plain how plan­ning and sched­ul­ing tech­nol­ogy can help op­er­a­tors over­come the chal­lenges of ten­der­ing, cal­cu­lat­ing costs and find­ing the smartest ways to utilise your ve­hi­cles and driv­ers — as part of the after­noon ses­sions on day two.

En­try to the trade show is free, but those want­ing to at­tend must still reg­is­ter their at­ten­dance via the QBIC web­site qbic.com.au.
