Registrations have just opened for the 2011 BusNSW Conference, held in conjunction with the Australian Bus + Coach Show 2011 at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney in early October.

BusNSW Executive Director Darryl Mellish says the event is being held at a time when public transport is a high priority for State and Federal Governments.

“The BusNSW Conference will include high profile government, media and private sector speakers presenting a wide range of important industry topics such as contracts, asset procurement, accreditation, marketing, technology and tourism,” Mellish says.

“The conference will provide delegates with important information on NSW and Australian bus and coach industry issues along with networking opportunities at a number of social functions.”

While entry to the Australian Bus + Coach Show is free, access to conference sessions and social functions will be restricted to registered conference delegates.

“Over $40m worth of vehicles from leading manufacturers will be on display at the Australian Bus + Coach Show 2011,” Mellish says.

“Delegates will have an opportunity to check out the latest engine, transmission, body and diagnostic technology.”

The show will have more than 100 indoor exhibition booths displaying products, services and tourism information for the bus and coach industry.

“This provides show attendees with an excellent opportunity to evaluate and source different products and services at the one location,” says Mellish.

The BusNSW conference will officially commence with a welcome party at Rydges Parramatta on the evening of Tuesday October 4, followed by the two-day show till Thursday October 6.

Both the BusNSW Conference and the Australian Bus + Coach Show 2011 is open to bus and coach operators and their employees, government representatives, equipment and service suppliers, tourism and hospitality providers, and bus enthusiasts.

BusNSW has also launched the official Australian Bus + Coach Show 2011 website which provides important visitor, exhibitor and conference information.

“The show website provides news, maps, parking, travel and accommodation information and will be updated regularly as we move closer to the event,” Mellish says.

The website also includes a link to the Australian Bus + Coach Show’s Facebook page which has been created to help promote the event.

“Users can select the ‘like’ button on the Australian Bus + Coach Show 2011 Facebook page to receive all the latest event information as it is posted on Facebook,” Mellish says.
