QBIC will host its annual conference "A Changing Landscape" at the Ville Resort Townsville over the 12th & 13th of April 2019. The objective of the conference is to take our Members on a journey, a journey on how we must adapt going forward to ensure business continuity and service viability.

We have finally bedded down SEQ Urban contracts and are now progressing to finalise Regional Urban contracts. Our School sector also needs a refresh and a new payment model that has the capacity to remain relevant across multiple years, captures all price movements and operational expenditure for a School Bus Operator.

Our annual conference offers a unique opportunity to engage fellow Bus Operators and key decision makers of this billion-dollar industry in a relaxed, friendly and informative atmosphere. I must also thank our Supply Partners and Sponsors for their continued support of our Association.

I have endeavoured to deliver a program that is balanced and informative across all Member sectors, supported by a fantastic social program. Historically Townsville in April delivers an average temperature range of 22 to 29 degrees with around 70mm of rain, what better place to meet, socialise and conference.

On behalf of my Executive and Team, we look forward to welcoming you to Townsville as a unified Industry, one that has a purposeful direction and voice.
