Roads Australia runs a large variety of events each year, ranging from our annual Transport Summit through to intimate round table Leaders’ lunches and dinners with Ministers and transport agency heads.

By partnering with us, you’ll make sure your brand is a focal point as we present events that feature senior Ministers, industry thought leaders, those delivering transformative infrastructure projects and experts in areas increasingly important to transport policy such as decarbonisation, place making and data & technology.

We offer a choice of partnership opportunities and packages to position your brand – and your people – in the right place, at the right time.

2023 highlights

Leaders’ lunches and dinners
Leaders’ lunches are small informal boardroom style events, limited to 20-30 senior executives engaging in Chatham House Rules discussions with key government stakeholders on trending industry issues. Leaders’ lunches are free for members.

Private Board dinners
Board dinners are exclusive to Tier 1 members and Patrons who are invited to an intimate and private dinner with the RA Board immediately following Board meetings. Board dinners are by invitation only and typically host 20-25 guests at EGM to CEO level.

Industry lunches
Industry lunches featuring high profile guest speakers are held regularly in capital cities across the country, attracting 300-500 attendees. These events offer an ideal opportunity for companies to book corporate tables and fly their company flags.

Annual lunches
RA holds Annual (end-of-year) lunches in capital cities across the country to celebrate
the festive season with members and invited guests. These are our flagship events attracting up to 550 guests in major cities. Guest speakers are generally state premiers or senior ministers.

Policy forums
Every year, RA’s Board determines a national set of policy objectives with the leaders of
Australia’s road and transport infrastructure agencies. We pursue these objectives by
facilitating and hosting events, workshops and meetings across five policy streams:
• Capacity
• Sustainability
• Customer Experience
• Transport Reform
• Safety

Online events for a national audience, attracting on average more than 300 registrations for each webinar. Topics vary and can be tailored to your area of interest.

Join the The Hub podcast series as a monthly thought-leader. Podcasts are shared with our 18,000+ strong network across Australia through social media, our newsletter and our website.

Fellowship Program
The Fellowship Program is a unique mentoring initiative that matches industry ‘up and comers’ with 10-15 years of experience with some of the most experienced, senior leaders in the Australian infrastructure sector. The Program focuses heavily on mentoring and leadership and provides a strong sense of ongoing Fellowship with alumni opportunities and connection to the Emerging Leaders program. There are 40 fellows in each intake.

Emerging Leaders Program
The Emerging Leaders (EL) Program was introduced in 2016 for our members 0-10 years in the industry to network and expand career horizons. The network of our young leaders is more than 2,000. The program also represents RA’s commitment to fostering young talent and attracting and retaining a diverse workforce. The EL Program also includes our Gala dinner and this year we are introducing an EL Forum to be held the afternoon prior to the Gala dinner. There are also a series of lunches and webinars held nationally focussing on leadership.
