Pedders Award Winners & Hall Of Fame Inductees
Pedders celebrates success and achievement at the 2022 Pedders National Conference
Each year the Pedders Suspension & Brakes group comes together for the annual Pedders National Conference. The conference gives the Pedders network the opportunity to celebrate success, to learn and be inspired, and to build relationships with other Pedders People. Each year the business hosts the conference in a different location and 2022’s event saw the Pedders group travel to Hobart.

This year the dinner was hosted at the IXL Atrium where guests were joined by Supercars commentator and Pedders brand ambassador Neil Crompton.
