It was a year of achievements for industry and now it’s time to take a look back at the year of 2015.


The way forward

As ‘conference season continued’, BusSA held the first state conference in three years.

The conference was attended by more than 70 operators and suppliers with executive director Lauran Huefner indicating the conference will go ahead in 2016 after the success of the event.

The conference saw a mix of politicians and bureaucrats, as well as experts in industrial relations and tourism.

Industry rallies
