One of the disappointing pitfalls this year has been the cancellation of the HBT National Conference at the Gold Coast. This is an event that all our Members, Suppliers and HBT Staff look forward to and the decision to cancel was difficult however, had to be made and with the benefit of hindsight, it was the only decision available.

In light of that decision we are excited to announce the first ever HBT Virtual Conference 2020. The Virtual Conference will comprise of 3 separate events held on different days, with each event focusing on either – Industrial Tools, Hardware & Building Supplies and Timber.

We know the benefits HBT Members receive from the annual National Conference, in particular the Trade Show so in the current climate these opportunities have become more important than ever. By registering to the one (or more) of these events we further reinforce to our Preferred Suppliers why we are the ‘Best little Buying Group in Australia’.
