Australian Transport Summit

Now in its eighth year, the Australian Transport Summit continues to be one of UITPANZ and the Tourism and Transport Forum's most significant events and is Australia’s foremost public transport summit.
The theme for the 2019 Summit is Real Mobility: Connecting People, Places, Spaces.  Hear how innovative mobility services are transforming how people move and where they work and live.  The program will include Australian and international keynote speakers, expert panels and case studies, and the agenda will focus on current and emerging issues facing the Australian transport sector.  The Australian Transport Summit will be about discussing what is possible.
The 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.

Master Classes

UITPANZ runs a regular series of Master Classes each year that is aimed at promoting knowledge exchange and best practice among members and non-members on topics that contribute to advancing public transport. Master Classes provide attendees a deep dive into key issues in the transport sector. Held over a half or full day, the format allows for a comprehensive examination and discussion of issues from a range of industry and government perspectives. Master Classes are held regularly throughout the year on a range of topics.

Young Transport Professionals’ Seminar

The annual YTP Seminar is designed to engage young professionals and emerging leaders in the transport sector and key issues and ideas that will define the future of mobility. The Seminar involves a wide range of presentations from transport authorities, operators, industry and academic institutions.
