ComVec attracts big name speakers

The Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Queensland (CVIAQ) has announced the Hon Ian Macfarlane MP, Shadow Minister for Energy and Resources, as a keynote speaker for the next Commercial Vehicle Engineering Conference (ComVec).

ComVec will be held on the 5th and 6th of June at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre. 

Before entering federal politics, Ian Macfarlane farmed and ran cattle in Queensland's Burnett region before becoming one of the country's most active agriculture politicians. President of the Queensland Graingrowers Association for seven years, President of the Grains Council of Australia for two years and simultaneously held executive positions on the Queensland and National Farmers Federations.

The practical farming tendencies still run deep. His nickname “Chainsaw” now reflects Ian's direct approach to cutting through the red tape to get things done for Australian business and industry on a political level, according to CVIAQ.

“ComVec’s broad range of technical speakers promises to deliver an outstanding depth of industry knowledge and invaluable insights into the future of trucking,” says Mr John Samson, Technical and Regulatory advisor for CVIAQ.
