Our Conference Sponsors

The AITPM National Conference is a major transportation conference for Australasia and is hosted by the Australian Institute of Transportation Planning and Management, this year in Perth 12-14 August.

In recognition of the close professional connection between the Transportation Group and AITPM, we sponsor a Transportation Group member to attend the conference.

The sponsorship (to the value of NZ$1,500) helps support a member to attend the conference, participate in the various sessions and workshops, and to represent Transportation Group NZ at the AITPM Annual General Meeting (held at the conference).

Interested members are invited to submit an application during the application period, which will involve a 300-word letter covering the following criteria:

  • benefit to member, employer and profession from member’s participation in the conference
  • ability of member to obtain additional funding needed for the trip (e.g. employer)
  • member’s contribution to profession (especially the Transportation Group)
  • whether member is presenting at the conference.

After the conference, the successful member will prepare a brief conference report that will be published in the Roundabout magazine, and is encouraged to give a presentation on their trip to their local Branch and the next Transportation Conference if possible.

Applications for the award are here and close Friday 12th July for the 2024 AITPM conference, by email to the Awards Co-ordinator.
