The largest transport event in the southern hemisphere is now even bigger, with NatRoad and Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA) joining forces to bring the 2019 NatRoad Conference to the Brisbane Truck Show.


NatRoad CEO Warren Clark says, "We are excited to partner with HVIA to deliver our next conference at the 2019 Brisbane Truck Show.

"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.

"As Australia’s only national member association dedicated to the needs of Australian road transport operators, NatRoad is well placed to address some of the major challenges that lie ahead of us.

"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 conference takes place on Wednesday, May 15 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.

The event will give delegates an invaluable opportunity to network, connect with industry leaders and generate new business opportunities.

The conference theme – ‘Driving the Future’ – reflects NatRoad’s approach to the dynamic ecosystem we operate in.

It will bring together a host of inspiring speakers who will engage with NatRoad members
around a range of key topics, carefully selected to present solutions to current challenges and highlight new opportunities.

Conference themes include:

Driving Your Business: A robust strategy is vital to the growth and sustainability of businesses both large and small.

It not only helps set long-term business goals but is indicative of the growth and resilience of our industry.

Expert speakers will share global best practices in planning for the future and running a sustainable business.

Driving Diversity: Driving diversity is the key to better business outcomes. A workforce
that is balanced in respect to gender, age and background will drive innovation and growth.

In 2019, NatRoad will drive the conversation on diversity within the road transport industry to the next level.

Learn how to enhance the representation of women, youth and racially diverse people in your business.

Driving the Future of Technology: With technology constantly evolving, should  businesses wait for future developments to become cutting edge?

When is the right time to invest in technology? The conference will explore a range of topics including autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, predictive and prescriptive analytics, telematics, and deep-learning solutions.

Hear from industry experts who will share what the future has in store for the transport industry.

The 2019 Brisbane Truck Show will be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from Thursday, May 16 to Sunday, May 19, 2019. To secure your ticket – and go into the draw to win a Toyota HiLux Rugged X – click here!
