TORONTO, Ont. – CITT has revealed the full agenda for the Canada Logistics Conference 2016 and has opened early bird registration today.
This year, the conference will bring delegates to Saint John, N.B. for three days of networking and learning sessions on critical industry issues.
The conference begins on October 26 with an opening networking reception, and will continue through October 27-28 with six learning sessions, two facility tours and many opportunities to connect with the shippers, carriers, and ancillary service providers who attend.
“This year’s program includes several forward-thinking sessions in addition to the popular industry-specific and career development topics delegates expect at Canada Logistics Conference,” said Catherine Viglas, president and CEO of CITT. “We’ve really emphasized both the skills and knowledge that are vital to industry professionals right now, as well as emerging trends for those wondering what the future holds for the sector.”
CITT said there are sessions during the conference that look towards the future of logistics, like ‘Uber’ Freight, a progressive, dynamic panel examining the potential shakeups and opportunities created by Uber-like logistics technologies. Delegates will also get a first look at new industry economic data in Transportation Buying Trends, presented by Lou Smyrlis, editorial director, Trucking Group at Newcom Business Media.
In addition, there will be conference sessions that address today’s issues directly, such as the Current State of Transportation, a multi-modal panel featuring C-suite speakers from Port Saint John, Air Canada Cargo, J.D. Irving Transportation and Logistics Division, Central Maine & Quebec Railway, MSC Canada, and TransCanada Energy East. Improving Your RFP Process, will help both carriers and shippers make the most of new technologies and best practices that have already impacted how the industry conducts RFPs.
The conference program will be rounded out by career development sessions: Succession Planning – designed to help professionals plan career paths for themselves as well as for their successors and others in their organization – and Power Pitching, a high-energy session on pitching skills to sell you ideas, your business, and yourself.
Attendees can also look forward to two unique facility tours: the Canaport Crude Receiving Terminal & Canaport LNG Terminal.
Early Bird registration rates are currently available for a limited time for Canada Logistics Conference 2016 until August 10.
