About

The Tourism & Transport Forum Australia (TTF) in association with the International Association of Public Transport Australia / New Zealand (UITPANZ) are delighted to present the 2018 Australian Transport Summit.  Now in its seventh year, the Australian Transport Summit continues to be one of TTF and UITPANZ’s most significant events and is Australia’s foremost public transport summit.

The theme for this year’s Summit is Where to next: Shaping our transport future.  The program will include Australian and international keynote speakers, expert panels and case studies, and the agenda will align closely with TTF’s key policy areas focusing on:

  • Australia’s long-term mobility future
  • Delivering city-changing transport infrastructure projects
  • Making better use of existing infrastructure

The 2018 Australian Transport Summit will bring together Government leaders, public and private sector experts and allow attendees to hear from, and share ideas with key stakeholders in the transport portfolio.

This one-day event will conclude with a closing cocktail reception where delegates can network and discuss insights and topics of interest that were highlighted throughout the conference program.  It will provide unrivalled opportunities to engage and connect with industry leaders, network and generate new business opportunities.

This year’s conference will be held on Thursday, 9 August 2018 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Melbourne.
