2021 National Conference

InterContinental Sanctuary Cove - Gold Coast


Reconnect for Change

It is time to get together and reconnect after a difficult year for road freight operators.

NatRoad is pleased to invite members to the NatRoad National Conference 2021, to be held on the sunny Gold Coast from 19-21 August 2021.

2020 has given us all time to reflect and we want to use this important networking event to let you share your experiences, tell us what’s important to your business and where improvements are needed to make things better for you and your business.

You will have the chance to participate in the much loved ‘NatRoad Parliament’ where you can debate the most pressing issues for you and your business. Attendees then vote on the most important issues you want NatRoad to work on. With key industry stakeholders and decision-makers attending, you’ll have the opportunity to ask the hard questions and have your voice heard.

Another highlight will be celebrating the great achievements of the industry with the NatRoad Awards presented at the Gala Dinner. Be sure to nominate a colleague or mate to be recognised for their hard yards in the industry.

We look forward to seeing you there!
