DISRUPTION IS
THE NEW NORMAL

Throughout the history of mankind, there have always been those who accepted the status quo and those who changed the game for good.

Just think of the industrial revolution, the creation of the internal combustion engine, the Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk, Apollo 11 or the advent of the all-encompassing Internet.

Within the heavy vehicle sector, we have our very own examples of game changers – individuals and corporations that have the potential to change entire industries, even political agendas, with nothing but an idea.

Identifying those key disruptors and the innovation challenges they are facing will be the main focus of the 2018 Global Heavy Vehicle Leaders Summit.
Hosted by the Australian Road Transport Suppliers’ Association (ARTSA) in association with leading innovative companies and organisations, the Summit will give key decision makers a forum to share business intelligence and find strategies to capitalise on the disruptive forces and game changing events in today’s world.

The event will entail eight topical sessions over two days and leave room for maximum interaction with the most prolific personalities of modern trucking.
