Owner Driver - - Natroad Conference -

The Na­tional Road Trans­port As­so­ci­a­tion (NatRoad) has an­nounced a part­ner­ship with the Heavy Ve­hi­cle In­dus­try Aus­tralia (HVIA) ahead of the 2019 Bris­bane Truck Show (BTS).

The largest trans­port event in the South­ern Hemi­sphere will of­fer even more next year, with the an­nual NatRoad Con­fer­ence set to be held at the Show.

NatRoad chief ex­ec­u­tive War­ren Clark ex­plains the de­ci­sion will bring the best from across the in­dus­try: “We are ex­cited to part­ner with HVIA to de­liver our next con­fer­ence at the 2019 Bris­bane Truck Show,” Clark says. “The con­fer­ence will bring to­gether in­dus­try lead­ers, pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tor ex­perts and al­low at­ten­dees to hear from and share ideas with key stake­hold­ers in the road trans­port sec­tor.

“This con­fer­ence truly en­com­passes our vi­sion of a har­monised road freight in­dus­try and will pro­vide a plat­form where busi­nesses can come to­gether with man­u­fac­tur­ers to dis­cuss the fu­ture.”

The 2019 NatRoad Con­fer­ence will fo­cus on im­prov­ing in­dus­try safety, long-term sus­tain­abil­ity, and na­tional har­mon­i­sa­tion. HVIA chief ex­ec­u­tive Todd Hack­ing says bring­ing the two events to­gether pro­vides stake­hold­ers with even more value: “We’re look­ing for­ward to work­ing with NatRoad to bring to­gether the road trans­port in­dus­try’s two must-at­tend events un­der one roof,” he says. “It will pro­vide all stake­hold­ers with a value-packed ex­pe­ri­ence and a great op­por­tu­nity to share knowl­edge and learn about in­no­va­tive de­vel­op­ments across the heavy ve­hi­cle in­dus­try.”

The con­fer­ence will be held on May

15, 2019 fol­lowed by the Bris­bane Truck Show from May 16 to 19, 2019 at the Bris­bane Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre.
