Conference Program and Registration 21-24 November 2021

Thank you for your enthusiasm to register for the Moving People 2021 conference in Brisbane! We are not quite ready to open for registrations and the program is still in the process of being compiled. Please travel back here periodically to check for updates.

This year, regardless of pandemic control outcomes, the BIC has decided to pursue the usual format of the national conference and provide delegates a full plenary program spanning 2-1/2 days. We feel that it is important that Industry comes together to critically reflect on ‘what happened’ in 2020 and discuss what may be for many, a new or adapted sustainable transport (business) model for the future.

The BIC National Conference aims to engage high level discussion on current and emerging issues, trends and challenges for our moving people industry. The program will include presentations from highly regarded policy leaders, thinkers to engage delegates on what our future cities and regions look like and future transport needs.

Broadly – the conference plenary program will aim to inform and engage robust discussion on:

  • core public transport and passenger transport policy and operational challenges
  • reflect on ‘what happened’ in 2020 and discuss what may be for many, a new or adapted sustainable transport (business) model for the future.
      Dedicated plenary session block-busters:
    • net-zero emissions technology (current, new and emerging) and the practicalities of applying this in a bus manufacturing sense and in the bus operational environment.
    • industrial relations – the health and well-being of drivers, recruitment, employment and retention of drivers, workplace equality
    • successful models and emerging technologies in the On Demand and MaaS spaces
    • long distance coach sector – land transport tourism
    • workshop on technical issues relating to the regulatory environment.

Conference Accommodation

The 2021 Moving People National Conference will convene at the Sofitel Brisbane Central from November 21 to 24. We chose the Sofitel as this year’s conference venue due to its capacity to take our large group of bus friends based on current 2-sq metre covid safe distance guidelines. The Sofitel also offers easy access to the beautiful CBD of Brisbane and all major transport hubs are accessible within 1 minute.

The BIC’s preferred accommodation partner is the Accor group and we are pleased this year to be able to continue that arrangement with additional accommodation options being available at both the Mercure and Pullman properties. Sofitel, Mercure and Pullman will also be able to extend special delegate discounts on a range of hotel services.

The BIC expects to be able to open accommodation options on this page by August 1. The usual terms will apply with delegates having the option to receive special rate accommodation for 3 days prior and post 21-24 November.
