Australian Trucking: Safe, Professional, Essential

ATA Chairman David Simon will address the National Press Club in Canberra on 3 April 2013.

Since 1966, the National Press Club has hosted major addresses by political and business leaders, including prime ministers, leaders of the opposition and international visitors.

In his nationally televised address, David will explain why trucking is safe, professional and essential for Australia. He will talk about:

* how the trucking industry is improving its safety;

* how the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator could increase the industry’s productivity and deliver lower freight costs;

* the ATA’s major research report on how governments could fix road charges and use the money to upgrade freight routes; and

* the industry’s agenda for the 2013 federal election.

You and your guests could be in the audience as you enjoy a two-course lunch, network and show your support for David and the industry.

A table for ten is available for $690 (incl GST).

Sponsoring a table would enable you to bring your key staff to the event, as well as customers and your other business contacts in Canberra. The ATA’s table sponsorship package includes:

* lunch for ten people at the National Press Club and attendance at the address;

* your organisation’s information in an industry information pack for every attendee;

* a behind-the-scenes tour of Parliament House (places are limited – book early); and

* acknowledgement in the ATA’s weekly newsletter and on the ATA website.

You can still sponsor a table if you don’t think you’ll have ten guests – the ATA will talk to you about placing other interesting people at your table to get the conversation going.

Individual tickets, which include lunch and attendance at the address, can be booked for $79 per person (inc GST).
