2018 event program to deliver more than ever for members and sponsors

Roads Australia has officially launch its event sponsorship program for 2018.

The nationwide program once again includes everything from major industry lunches and Forums to exclusive single-table and Board events, as well as special Policy Forums.

The highlight of 2018 will be the joint RA - IRF Regional Conference in Sydney on May 30 and June 1. It's been three years since we last hosted a major international event and we anticipate this will be even bigger and more successful than 2015. Early-bird registration is now open and the program will be out shortly.

If you'd like to discuss any of the sponsorship opportunities - or have a speaker in mind for an event you'd like to sponsor - contact Hannah Sauvarin or Marlie Curtis in our Membership team.

Delivering for Australia's most important asset

As the peak body of road industry stakeholders, Roads Australia provides a national forum for debate and discussion on how we can best manage, fund, maintain and renew this vital economic asset for the benefit of all Australians.

Membership of Roads Australia is your entree to the most powerful networking experience in the Australian transport and infrastructure sectors. As we like to say, the top people come because the top people come.

Roads Australia has a unique approach to policy. We work from inside the tent, providing regular opportunities for our public and private sector members to come together in our Policy Chapters to drive practical policy outcomes. It's a formula for influencing policy like no other, and it works.
