The New Zealand Local Authority Traffic Institute or Trafinz represents local authority views on road safety and traffic management in New Zealand. It exists to lobby the government, to influence decision making on road safety and traffic issues. It also acts as a forum for collectively pursuing traffic issues of interest to local authorities, and for sharing information and advice.

The Trafinz Annual Conference is New Zealand’s premier forum for representatives from the traffic engineering, road safety and transportation planning community.  It is intended to stimulate debate and collaboration amongst peers who are working in the transportation arena with an interest in road safety, sustainability and traffic management.

This will be an ideal opportunity to network, share and learn new ideas across this diverse discipline.

This year there will be a major International Safety Conference in Wellington in early October and this will include a 2 day Road Safety Education Conference. This is at about the same time as Trafinz would normally be holding its own Conference.  Trafinz is assisting with the organisation of the Wellington event, but do not see it as a full substitute for the Trafinz Conference.

It has therefore been decided to change the format of the Trafinz Conference this year.  We will use some of the international speakers from the Wellington event and give transportation in Auckland the opportunity to hear their messages and discuss how to grow a NZ road safety culture locally.  One day will be particularly focussed on local safety initiatives and organised by our partner organisation SASTA, with the other day more focussed on higher level strategic and traffic policy issues and aimed at involving local and regional political and professional leaders.  As with all Trafinz conferences there will be an excellent informal evening with a dinner where the Trafinz Achievement Awards will be presented and the opportunity to talk to our overseas guests will be provided.  The change in format also responds to the budget restrictions that organisations and Councils are having to work within and will provide a low cost but high quality opportunity for staff development.

The conference will be held in Auckland on 8/9 October. Click here to read more.

Registration fees to attend these conferences are incredibly good value from only $150.00 + GST per day.
