2022 marks 70 years since the formation of RA’s forerunner organisations – the Australian Road Federation and the Australian Road Forum.
This year, the John Shaw Dinner will celebrate RA’s growth and evolution over seven decades to become Australia’s peak body for roads within an integrated transport system.

The John Shaw Award Dinner is the biggest event on RA's calendar, and the demand for tickets always exceeds our capacity.

The John Shaw Award Dinner at the magnificent Palladium at Crown brings our industry together to celebrate excellence and recognise significant individual achievement. The event offers an outstanding opportunity for networking, complemented by great food and entertainment.

Our previous John Shaw Award Dinners have broken all records, both in attendance and demand for seats. This event will SELL OUT so be sure to book early to avoid any disappointment. The best tables are allocated on a 'first in, best dressed' basis, so don't leave it to the last minute.
