    About the Conference


    Each year, the NatRoad conference brings together the who’s-who of the trucking industry in one location.


    The 2018 NatRoad Conference will once again host an audience of influential industry leaders, politicians, regulators, business owners and suppliers in a dynamic set-up. 



    Why you should attend


    NatRoad is getting bigger and better in 2018. This year, the conference will turn it up a gear and encourage businesses to ‘Power Up!’ their thinking. The two-day event will feature sessions revealing the biggest opportunities for businesses to improve their productivity and efficiency whilst tackling some of the industry’s most challenging topics. 


    The 2018 conference will have something for everyone, with parallel sessions designed to help large business as well as small operators. Delegates will walk away from the conference with practical tools to apply to their business and "big-thinking" inspiration for future planning.



    Bring the Family


    Why not make it a family holiday? With the conference wrapping up on Saturday evening it's the perfect chance to share Father's Day (Sunday) with your family on the picturesque Hamilton Island.


    For the first time, we'll also be running a special family day activity on Saturday 1 September giving your guests and loved ones the opportunity to see the beautiful Whitsundays in style. View the Family & Friends tab in the left-hand navigation for more information on this generously discounted day trip.
