Celebrating 40 years
of the MLAA

20-22 October 2022 – Gold Coast

40th MLAA National
Conference & Trade Expo

Dear locksmiths and security industry professionals,

We are delighted to announce that our National Conference & Trade Expo is back for 2022, and we invite you to join us on the Gold Coast at the recently refurbished JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa.

It has been nearly 3 years since our last major industry event in Auckland, and our Trade Partners are very keen to show you their very latest offerings.

The program includes a full trade expo, a terrific keynote from Nelson Mandela’s former bodyguard Rob Redenbach, several interactive Q&A style industry forums, and a mix of skills training and product information sessions.

Dave O’Neil will be entertaining the guests at the Gala Dinner & Awards night, and there will be a number of awards presented, including the John Andrew Apprentice of the Year award – sponsored by LSC, Silca & ABUS – the MLAA Best Shop and Best Van awards – sponsored by SG Locks – and the Future of Locksmithing initiative, supported by Lock n Key, Carbine, EVVA, LA GARD, and Keyline.

Conferences are not just about seeing the very latest products; they are also important networking events that allow like-minded professionals to catch up with old friends, as well as meet new ones.

We look forward to seeing you in October.

Jim Fisher
