In March 2017, MTA Queensland hosted Carmageddon – Innovate or Detonate; a one day symposium which brought together industry, government & academia designed to invoke thought and brainstorm the enormous disruptors coming into the space of automotive.
MTA Queensland held the next Carmageddon – Leading the Way in July 2017. The program focused heavily on business innovation solutions with attendees offered the opportunity to experience an exhibition showcasing new-world ideas and concepts.
As the peak industry body for the automotive industry in Queensland, as well as the state’s leading automotive training provider, MTA Queensland has a responsibility to ensure we are leading the way in disruptors whilst collaborating to find solutions to create new business opportunities.
In response to the need for an automotive innovation hub, MTA Queensland launched MTAiQ – Australia’s first automotive innovation hub in November 2017.
