Sandown Drive Days tickets now on sale

According to Neil Chambers, Chief Executive of the Victorian Transport Association (VTA), tickets for the much-anticipated Sandown Drive Days 2013 event are now on sale.

“After months of planning, we are excited to present the best ever Sandown Drive Days to the transport industry,” he said on Monday. “This is the third event of its kind, and it is becoming renowned as the best interactive, hands-on event that demonstrates the latest technologies and innovations of our industry.”

According to Mr Chambers, the event will boast working demonstrations of trucks, trailers, vans, cars and motorcycles at the same time. “We will see the latest advances in transport technology, workplace safety solutions and best practice maintenance will be demonstrated, as well as sessions on Performance Based Standards (PBS) vehicles and bulk tanker emergency response.”

Over fifteen different trucks will be demonstrating the latest in safety technology, so attendees can compare the features and understand the full potential that the latest equipment offers for improved productivity and safety, Chambers announced.

“But, the Sandown Drive Days 2013 event is much more than just trucks and trailers. Maintenance sessions, hands-on technology displays and demonstrations of the latest in load restraint and safety equipment make this a truly practical experience across the full range of issues for the transport sector. With the range of activities, it is a good idea for companies to send people to different sessions to pick
up the ideas and benefit from witnessing the equipment in action,” he added.

The third Sandown Drive Days event has the active support of leading organisations within the commercial road transport industry, including VicRoads, the National Transport Commission, Transport Certification Australia, Transport Accident Commission, CityLink, EastLink and WorkSafe Victoria as well as leading truck manufacturers Daimler Trucks, Hino, Paccar, Scania and Volvo and a number of other leading companies.

Tickets are now available online, priced at $165 per session.
