Hosted and organised by the Australian Trucking Association (ATA), the event is your chance to make a difference to the industry's future, have your say and get results from your ideas.
The first 150 transport operators who register will receive a cabin trolley suitcase - ideal for the trip to Hamilton Island! (once registered, the suitcase will be sent to your business or home address)
At Trucking Australia 2013, you will:
- build a new safety action plan for the industry;
- plan the way forward on the carbon tax and road charges;
- work out how to beat the staff shortage and recruit more women and younger drivers; and
- map out how to turn those ideas into results through grassroots lobbying, the media and the ATA and its member associations.
A limited number of places will also be available in a small group media training course.
Why not bring the family along too? Children up to 12 years stay and eat free on the island (conditions apply). The island kids' club with qualified childcare will also give you the chance to enjoy some quality time with your partner.
The registration fee for Trucking Australia 2013 is $450 (incl GST), less than half the cost of attending previous trucking conventions. Four star accommodation is available at a special event rate of only $270 per night (incl GST), and airfares to Hamilton Island are competitive.
Trucking Australia 2013 is supported by the ATA's Foundation Sponsors, NTI, Volvo and BP.
