Final preparations are being made for the 2007 ATA/ARTSA Technical and Maintenance Conference (TMC) with the event on track to be a great success,
According to Australian Trucking Association (ATA) chief executive, Stuart St Clair, the ATA has received a high volume of registrations for the event from a range of businesses and suppliers, indicating that the TMC is highly anticipated among industry circles.
“The respected reputation of the TMC is reflected in the number of delegates who are making the trip to Melbourne to participate and contribute,” St Clair says.
“The TMC has grown into the industry’s leading event for workshop and technical staff by providing up-to-date, comprehensive programs year after year.”
“Perhaps a sign of the TMC’s increasing reach is the large number of first time attendees joining us in 2007,” he says.
This year delegates will hear from a range of speakers from the field and will have the opportunity to canvass ideas, concerns and solutions in a series of smaller groups.
Delegates will be able to discuss issues such as engine innovation, workshop training systems, tyre technology and maintaining compliance for truck modifications with likeminded industry individuals.
Mr St Clair has thanked BP Australia for its continued backing of the TMC, with the ATA foundation sponsor once again showing their support for the industry by acting as the major sponsor for the event.
“BP Australia’s involvement in the TMC assists the ATA and ARTSA in presenting this very important event every year,” says St Clair.
