TMC is the time to embrace new ideas

FOR more than 20 years, the Australian Trucking Association and PACCAR and its dealer network have collaborated to present the annual Technical and Maintenance Conference (TMC) - one of Australia's longest running technical conferences.

Our industry is changing fast, so in 2018 we were excited to relaunch as the Technology and Maintenance Conference, revising the program to include an increased focus on technology, as well as the key issues of safety, productivity, environment, costs and careers.

TMC is a must-attend event for technology and maintenance professionals in the trucking industry and brings together maintenance technicians, apprentices, fleet managers and technical fleet professionals.

Delegates will embrace new ideas, while developing and maintaining real skills.

TMC 2019 will give delegates the opportunity to learn industry best practice through an interactive program of technical sessions, compliance and information forums, job-specific presentations, and practical workshops.

TMC is the ideal opportunity to build professional networks and develop relationships with suppliers, operators and technicians in the industry through exciting networking sessions and the PACCAR Parts Fun Night - a conference highlight.

TMC brings together a wide range of industry suppliers and brands, displaying the latest products and services in the exhibition space.

Delegates will also have an exclusive opportunity to get hands-on with trucking technology in the interactive workshop zone.

TMC is also a time to celebrate industry excellence, at the Castrol Vecton Awards Dinner.

Each year, the ATA honours technical and maintenance excellence in the workshop with the Craig Roseneder Award.

This prestigious award is a long-standing tradition of TMC and celebrates the professionalism of the men and women in the trucking industry's workshops.

The dinner also reveals the winner of the Castrol Vecton Industry Achievement Award, an honour that recognises an individual or organisation's technical innovation and achievement within the trucking industry.

I invite you to join us at TMC this October and take advantage of our End of Financial Year discount. Delegates who book before 30 June will receive $100 off their full price registration.

TMC 2019 will be held from Monday, October 14 to Wednesday, October 16 at the Kangan Institute's Automotive Centre of Excellence, Melbourne Docklands. Take advantage of the End of Financial Year discount and register now at truck.net.au/TMC.
