VTA prepares for upcoming state conference

The VTA is almost ready to welcome delegates to Phillip Island this weekend for its annual conference

The Victorian Transport Association (VTA) is gearing up for its 2024 state conference, to be held this weekend at Silverwater Resort on Phillip Island.

Starting on Sunday March 17 and running until Tuesday March 19, the VTA conference is set to include a variety of transport industry members.

“We’ve had a fantastic response to the conference year with almost 200 delegates already registered where they will hear from leading transport industry stakeholders from government, regulators, operators and industry suppliers around our theme of Future Freight Landscapes,” VTA CEO Peter Anderson says.

“In the challenging trading environment and at a time when transport operators and suppliers are busier than ever, this is a terrific outcome and a credit to VTA members and industry participants.

‘We are especially encouraging the younger and next generation of industry leaders to attend, and I invite operators and suppliers to consider sending them firsthand. For those that have left registering to the last minute, now is the time to book.”

Among the presenters confirmed to address delegates are Commonwealth and Victorian roads, transport and freight ministers and their opposition shadows, senior representatives from state and national road, safety and freight authorities, infrastructure bodies and supplier representatives covering the major prime mover, equipment and technology manufacturers.

This includes WA Senator Glenn Sterle, Victorian ports and freight minister Melissa Horne, shadow Victorian treasurer Brad Rowswell and National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) CEO Sal Petroccitto.

National Transport Commission (NTC) CEO Michael Hopkins will also join Industry Skills Australia CEO Paul Walsh and NatRoad CEO Warren Clark in presenting at the event.
