Come experience the Road Transport Forum Conference: 26-27 September

Welcome

The Road Transport Forum Annual Conference is heading back to the South Island and for the first time since 2005 the event is being held in Dunedin. It is exciting to be back in the south and to help celebrate the culture, history and innovative attitude of the region this year’s conference theme is ‘Southern Ways’. We are very fortunate to have secured use of the fantastic Forsyth Barr Stadium and its lounges for the event and I know that you will enjoy that experience.

 

We will also host the final of the 2018 New Zealand Truck Driving Championship and a networking function inside the stadium, while the prestigious Road Transport Industry Awards Dinner is to be held in the beautiful Dunedin Town Hall.
