THE Victorian Transport Association has released the provisional program for the State Conference 2020, to be held from 1-3 March at Silverwater Resort, Phillip Island.

The program brings together a diverse group of around 35 speakers and panellists.

“Presentations and panels structured over seven focussed sessions will be geared around our conference theme of Managing Increased Demand,” said VTA CEO Peter Anderson.


“Something many operators are experiencing from customers responding to pressures brought about by population growth, low inflation for consumer goods, and an infrastructure boom that has seen transport is seeing new roads, railways, bridges and tunnels built though out Australia.”

In a break with tradition, federal Labour road safety spokesman Senator Glenn Sterle is to address delegates on the Sunday night before heading to Canberra for Parliament will be sitting.

State opposition ports and freight spokesperson Roma Britnell is to address her first VTA State Conference, as will the new executive director of Freight Victoria, Praveen Reddy. More information is available by contacting the VTA.
