QBIC will host its annual conference "Vision 2020" at the Sea World Resort Gold Coast over the 17th and 18th of April 2020. The conference theme highlights our 20th year as the peak Industry body in Queensland representing Bus and Coach Operators and demonstrates the need for clear vision going forward. Our program has also been designed to compliment the theme by including:

  • how flexible fatigue management can benefit your future business,
  • how we can deal with increasing daily pressures whilst maintaining a resilient and productive workplace,
  • what new technologies are available and how they are trending in Australia,
  • future changes to the Award system, and
  • the modernisation of the School payment model.

My primary focus over the past year or so has been on the needs of our School sector Members, to ensure that they are fairly remunerated for the contracted services they deliver on behalf of the State and to ensure that their payment model captures all price movements, is transparent and will remain relevant across multiple years.

Conference “Vision 2020” will again provide a unique opportunity to engage fellow Bus Operators and key decision makers of this billion-dollar industry in a relaxed, friendly and informative atmosphere supported by a fantastic social program. I must also thank our Supply Partners and Sponsors for their continued support of our Association.

Historically, the Gold Coast in April delivers an average temperature of 26 degrees with around 10.8mm of rain, what better place to meet, socialise and conference.

On behalf of my Executive and Team, we look forward to welcoming you to the Gold Coast as a unified Industry, one that has a clear vision and strong voice.
