CALGARY, Alta. — The Canadian Institute of Traffic and Transportation (CITT) has renamed its upcoming conference in Calgary that runs October 22-24.
Previously called “Reposition, ” the new name for the event is “Canada Logistics Conference 2014.”
CITT released a statement that clarified the name change was done to reflect the inclusiveness of the event.
“We chose the name to make sure it communicated that it’s the Canadian conference for logistics professionals,” said CITT president Catherine Viglas. “In the past, there had been some perception that the conference was an exclusive event for CITT members, and that’s not the case. We’ve had hundreds of delegates, including non-members, shippers, carriers, ports, and from across sectors from minerals to pharmaceuticals and more.”
The conference is now in it’s 29th year and includes sessions and workshops, as well as the chance to network.
“The broad appeal of the session topics is the other big reason we renamed the conference” added Viglas. “We focus on content that logistics professionals across sectors across Canada will find informative and immediately applicable in their jobs. So we want to make sure that professionals on both the client and supplier side of supply chain logistics know that they will absolutely find value in this conference–that’s why both shippers and carriers are always well represented in our audience, with many delegates coming back year after year. After all, the best outcome a delegate can get from a PD conference is going back to work feeling smarter and more motivated.”
