The 2014 NatRoad conference is being held in Adelaide from 14 – 16 August at the Adelaide Convention Centre. As Australia’s largest road transport industry association, NatRoad is pleased to host our conference in the vibrant city of Adelaide.

Last year’s conference delivered an informative and interactive format that enabled members to pass a record 30 motions initiated by member forums and an additional 9 motions proposed by the NatRoad Secretariat.

The theme of this year’s conference is This Is The New Beginning. The program will include a line-up of expert speakers on key industry topics along with the popular delegate forums. These forums for carriers of refrigerated, over-dimensional and dangerous good, bulk dry and bulk liquid and container and general will give operators, small and large, the opportunity to voice their concerns and collaborate with their peers to draft motions for tabling at the NatRoad Parliament. Motions carried will shape NatRoad’s advocacy activities and work program for the following 12 months.
