2022 – Changing Today for Tomorrow

Nau mai, Haere mai ki Ōtautahi

The first hybrid Australasian Road Safety Conference, and the first to be held outside of Australia, 2022 resulted in the highest delegate numbers that have ever been seen at ARSC.

The conference gave over 700 delegates the opportunity to connect both in-person and online, with three pre-conference events, five concurrent streams, numerous field trips and social dinners, and daily networking activities. The quality of ARSC presentations increase every year and 2022 was no exception. View photos from the conference on Flickr.
