VTA State Conference 2018

The VTA is assembling a fantastic line up of speakers to address delegates to the three day event around the theme of

The Victorian Transport Association makes no apology for helping members to be profitable and successful, which is why State Conference 2018 has been developed with sustained profitability and success for transport operators as a core theme.

The VTA is assembling a highly-credentialed list of influential speakers from industry, government academia to address delegates around the key profitability drivers of customersinfrastructuretechnologysafety and equipment, and looks forward to welcoming members and other delegates for the two-day conference.
