Provisional program for State Conference 2021 available now

The Victorian Transport Association (VTA) has released the provisional program for State Conference 2021.

The event is ‘jam-packed’ with all the freight and logistics industry stakeholders transport operators need to hear from to learn about ‘What’s in Front of the Transport Industry’, the theme for this year’s conference.

“Among the over 30 presenters we have lined up to address delegates are Commonwealth and Victorian roads, transport and freight ministers, and their opposition shadows, senior representatives from key state and national roads, safety and freight authorities, road and rail infrastructure bodies, supplier representatives covering the major prime mover and equipment and technology manufacturers, and others,” said VTA CEO, Peter Anderson.

“After a year when our ability to meet has been severely restricted, the VTA felt it important to assemble experts who can inform members and delegates about current and future issues impacting industry in terms of transport infrastructure, safety, human resources, industrial relations, and regulatory reforms.”

Key speakers include:

  • Federal Assistant Minister for Road Safety and Freight Transport, Scott Buchholz
  • Victorian Roads and Road Safety Minister, Ben Carroll
  • Federal Shadow Assistant Minister for Road Safety, Senator Glenn Sterle
  • Victorian Shadow Ports and Freight Minister, Roma Britnell
  • NHVR CEO, Sal Petroccitto
  • Freight Victoria CEO, Praveen Reddy
  • Victorian Wages Inspectorate Director, Robert Hortle

The full program lineup can be viewed here.

“This is arguably one of our best line-up of presenters, which is a real credit to the willingness of industry leaders in spite of border restrictions and uncertainty to update delegates on the key issues we are confronted with – I thank all of our presenters for their time and commitment and encourage you to join us in-person or online for all or parts of the conference,” said Anderson.
