What previous participants have said:

Warm congratulations on your splendid conference dinner last night aboard The Jackson. Every colleague I spoke with was so impressed with their experience of Thredbo 17, whether they were repeat offenders or it was their first time. It is very clear that you have created something impactful here.

Professor Annamarie Jagose | Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Office of the Vice-Chancellor

Congratulations to yet another successful Thredbo conference and thank you for making my experience pleasant and energizing. I had a wonderful time and am amazed that the series keeps getting better and better. It is my favourite conference by far! Hope to see you soon again and to be able to stay longer at ITLS next time.

Goran Smith, Research Institute of Sweden

The Thredbo series of conferences is one of the only conferences of its kind in the world where operators, regulators and academics get together to discuss, in plenary and workshop sessions, the very important aspects of, amongst other, contracting in public transport. It provides for robust discussions, relevant research results, trends and updates on this very important aspect of the provision and management of public transport in developed and developing countries.

Professor Jackie Walters, Director of the Institute for Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS) (Africa)

The Thredbo series is my biannual intellectual injection. As a practicing lawyer advising private bus operators, the Thredbo series provides the much-needed update on the industry globally and locally and there is nowhere else that comes close in building networks and learning of best practice.

Peter Dwyer, Partner Piper Alderman

I have attended and presented at many conferences, but the Thredbo series is without doubt the best I have participated in. The workshop format ensures great debate and outcomes of great academic and practical relevance. The mix of academics, regulators, industry operators and suppliers, and consultants, ensures that the conference is rich in ideas and relevance.
