Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia has extended the offer of HVIA member registration rates for the upcoming ComVec 2016 conference to transport associations and their members and associates.

If you are a member of a participating association you will save up to $300 on your full registration package.

The move to extend the member registration rates signifies a national approach to the challenges facing the Heavy Vehicle Industry with the focus on a collaborative effort to share knowledge of new technology, changing laws and provide a platform for manufacturers, suppliers and operators to come together to create the safest and most productive vehicles for the Australian market.

Industry associations include the Australian Trucking Association (ATA), the Bus Industry Confederation (BIC) and the Australian Road Transport Suppliers Association (ARTSA) and all members and associates of these groups.

Australia’s Heavy Vehicle Engineering and Technical 2 day conference ComVec is designed to provide critical information on future technology, innovation, government policy and vehicle standards and regulations.

ComVec brings together an assembly of professionals from industry leaders and innovators, government, consultants and mechanical engineering experts who will conduct sessions on challenges facing our industry, what’s here and what’s coming, latest trends, technology and potential solutions.

ComVec will also provide unique opportunities for heavy vehicle professionals to interact and collaborate at the evenings cocktail function. The event is on July 19 to 20 at the Melbourne Park Function Centre located next to the Rod Laver Arena via Batman Avenue Melbourne.

“ComVec is an opportunity for those working in the road transport industry in Australia to gather and discuss the technical, operational and regulatory issues that affect the day to day functions of their trucks and trailers”. Mark Hammond
