QT Tyres were once again proud sponsors of the LBRCA Conference in Dubbo. Over the 2 years of being a sponsor we have made some good friends and formed great working relationships.
Rod McIver, my husband and owner of QT Tyres is a 4th generation Livestock transport boy so it was wonderful to see the normally shy and introverted man come to life and feel so at home at this livestock event. It is a real honour to be able to give back and support an industry that is so close to Rodney’s heart through the Livestock, Bulk and Rural Carriers Association.
He even caught up with Trevor, the General manager at Gordon Martin Bulk Haulage whom he hadn’t seen in many years. Trevor used to work for the McIver Bros transport in his younger days and it was great for them to re-connect.
The 2 day Conference was very informative and included:
Interactive Q&A Panel
Latest announcements about NSW roads
Q&A session with key government official and other supply chain partners
Local council issues
LBRCA Young Driver of the Year Finalists
Showtime! Dinner – catch up with friends for a hearty meal, a few beers and some exciting entertainment!
Breakout sessions – Livestock and bulk sector specific issues
A Trip Down Memory Lane Blue Ribbon Gala Dinner and Auction
And of course the expo where we were a sponsor.
QT Tyres now sponsors and or attends over half a dozen conferences and expos each year, and the LBRCA is the only one that I’ve attended that runs a partners programme. I went with the women on the Friday, and it was a wonderful day spent shopping, lunching, morning tea, afternoon tea. Mmmm, sounds like a lot of eating, doesn’t it?
QT Tyres has offered to sponsor the Partners Programme for 2018, so I’m very excited that we can continue to support the LBRCA. We find that by attending any of these industry conferences we benefit by connecting with a diverse group of industry leaders. We are able to listen to concerns, thoughts and ideas from truck owners and constantly improve the way we do business. Rod in particular enjoys being briefed on industry leading news and technology and then finding a way to implement that into what we at QT are doing.
