5-7 MARCH 2020  |  TAMWORTH, NSW

The LBRCA is delighted to invite you to join us for our 2020 annual conference in Tamworth, one of Australia’s richest agricultural regions.

Our event will take place at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment and Conference Centre (TRECC), the biggest multi-purpose centre outside the NSW and south-east Queensland. This means our conference sessions, sponsor exhibits, and heavy vehicle displays will be located under a single roof. Just like the local region, the LBRCA 2020 annual conference will deliver a progressive and innovative schedule of events with a focus on interactive experiences. Being the first city in the southern hemisphere to switch on electric street lights, the LBRCA 2020 annual conference in Tamworth is guaranteed to shine a light on our industry.
