The Australian Road Transport Suppliers Association will host the Global Heavy Vehicle Leaders Summit at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on 8-9 May 2018.
According to ARTSA, Australia’s Chief Scientist, Dr Alan Finkel, will open the event to discuss global disruption and how it is influencing the future of heavy vehicles. He has a background in neuroscience, electrical engineering, and was also named as the 2015 winner of the UK’s Institution of Engineering and Technology Mountbatten Medal.
“Every two years ARTSA run a Global Leaders Summit,” ARTSA said in a statement. “This is our fourth Leaders Summit and will focus on the global forces that are disrupting business and both creating huge opportunities but also bear traps for the un-aware.
“Heavy vehicles are our focus but to get to the likely impacts we will look at the global forces that are influencing urban growth, ownership of supply chains and other forces before examining their potential impact on vehicle propulsion, automation, telematics and the drivers of regulatory reform.”
