Event description

Technological disruption, rising populations, growth of the shared economy, and changing demographics are just some of the issues that will define the careers of young transport professionals.

The 2019 UITPANZ Young Transport Professionals Seminar in Melbourne will dissect these issues through the exploration of this year's theme, 'Mobility of the Future', prompting attendees to ponder questions like:

- What does the future mobility network look like?

- What will the future customer look like?

- What do I want my professional journey to look like?

Attendees of the Young Transport Professionals Seminar will hear from thought-leaders from within the transport sector, presenting their experience and emerging ideas for future mobility. Through presentations, discussion and debate, attendees will learn about important ideas and issues facing our industry, including integrated mobility, on-demand transport, transport disruption, customer experience, as well as reflections from senior executives responsible for major transport portfolios.

This year’s Seminar will be held on 29 November 2019 at PwC’s Melbourne office.

The Young Transport Professionals Seminar is designed for early-career professionals who are seeking to connect with other emerging leaders, and to learn from senior executives and transport experts. Most attendees are under 35 or have less than 5 years' experience.
