16 March 2012

Earlybird registration for the Australian Trucking Convention closes in one week, on 23 March 2012. This peak national forum on road transport issues is the place to get the best ideas, information and contacts in the industry for your business in 2012.

The Chief Executive of the Australian Trucking Association, Stuart St Clair, said attending the Australian Trucking Convention was a smart move to ensure the best future for your business in 2012 and beyond.

“The speakers at the convention will be addressing the big issues for 2012. International safety expert Don Osterberg will share how he has reduced fatal crashes by 59% and saved $24 million in productivity costs for Schneider National- and how operators can make these changes in their businesses, too,” Mr St Clair said.

“Richard Hancock from the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator office will outline his to-do list for operators for the NHVR, and Steve Ousley from Australia Post will discuss ways to future proof your business.

“These speakers are just a few from the exceptional line up at this year’s convention. When you then also consider the opportunities for networking within the industry and the opportunity to see the latest from industry suppliers, the convention offers an opportunity to make your business the best it can be.

“The convention will also feature a spectacular array of social events, including the Volvo Night at the Races Auction dinner and the ATA Foundation Sponsors Gala awards dinner. The Gala dinner is the trucking industry’s black tie night of the year, where the recipients of the National Trucking Industry Awards for 2012 will be honoured.”

The Australian Trucking Convention will be held on Wednesday 16 to Saturday 19 May 2012, at the Rosehill Gardens Exhibition centre in Sydney. To attend, register now as a delegate at Register before 23 March and save $250 off full delegate registration.
