Trucking Australia 2018 convention goes to Canberra

THE trucking industry's biggest challenges will be met head-on at the Australian Trucking Association's (ATA) national event - Trucking Australia 2018.

Driver fatigue, identifying the next generation of industry leaders and improving mental health will headline the congress at the National Convention Centre in Canberra next April.

ATA CEO Ben Maguire said Trucking Australia 2018 was "a must” for industry heavyweight.

"Trucking Australia 2018 will also feature workshops on how to use the master code of practice being developed by the ATA and ALC, and what executive officers need to do to meet the due diligence requirements that will come into force during the year,” Mr Maguire said.

"These workshops are a must attend, particularly if you're a company director or senior manager, no matter what the size of your business.

"Registered delegates who go to both workshops will receive a certificate signed by the ATA to confirm their attendance.

"Trucking Australia 2018 will also see the welcome return of our industry parliament, where our delegates will be able to reflect on the long term future of the industry - and also on the problems that need to be fixed now.”

The event will also offer the chance for attendees to catch up with old friend and create new bonds within the industry.

"Trucking Australia 2018 won't be all work,” Mr Maguire said.

"When the business sessions are over, our delegates will be able to network and enjoy outstanding social events, including the ATA Auction Dinner, the famous Kenworth Legends Lunch and the ATA Foundation Sponsors Gala Awards Dinner.

"The social events will showcase the new Canberra, because there is more to Canberra than pollies and roundabouts!”

Full delegate registration for Trucking Australia 2018 is only $595 (inc GST). Other registration and social packages, including for business sessions only, are available.

Trucking Australia 2018 will be held at the National Convention Centre, Canberra, from Wednesday, April 18, until Friday, April 20, 2018.
