Registrations have opened for Trucking Australia 2017 (TA 2017), which will take place on 21-23 June.
The annual event gives operators, industry members and state associations the opportunity to participate in developing the trucking industry’s policy plans and priorities.
For the first time in the event’s history, TA 2017 is will be held in Darwin, with program topics to include preparing for the future, ensuring safety, maintaining industry viability and chain of responsibility obligations.
“At TA 2017 we aim to listen to state and industry led member associations and will build on their knowledge and to our overall membership offering. I urge all our state and territory member associations to attend and have their say,” said Ben Maguire, CEO of the Australian Trucking Association. “As the peak body for trucking operators, the ATA has developed a program focussed on key industry issues. Our aim is to facilitate constructive forums for operators to express their views and actively participate in shaping the trucking industry’s policy agenda. Post-event feedback will highlight attendee input and is key to seeing the outcomes of discussions turned into industry action plans.”
TA 2017 will also include working lunches and a formal dinner, with awards, an auction and a gala night with opportunities to relax and network with other industry members. The National Trucking Industry Awards will recognise achievements of members across several categories. TruckSafe will also acknowledge long-standing members while the Kenworth Legends Lunch will provide entertaining and insightful stories from the industry over the decades.
Leading commercial road transport publication, Prime Mover, along with Big Rigs, have also been announced as media partners for the event.
