“The symposium brings together the very best in knowledge and education.

“It is about sharing insights and ideas from world leading research and development, looking at best practice policy and connecting directly with industry at one of the world’s great road transport events.

“The conference will be held on the eve of the Brisbane Truck Show, creating a great opportunity for delegates to enjoy everything both events have to offer.

“For HVTT-17 we have selected the theme of Ecosystem Evolution.

“We believe it harnesses the challenges and opportunities that we all face as the industry progresses the transformation to zero emissions vehicles. That takes in vehicles, systems, energy and infrastructure.”

HVTT-17 will take place from Monday 15th to Wednesday 17th of May 2023 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre with the Brisbane Truck Show opening on Thursday 18th May and running through the weekend.
