CTEA conference looks to the future

WINDOSR, ON – From the future of carbon pricing to the latest in trailer manufacturing, the 2017 Canadian Transportation Equipment Association’s (CTEA) annual conference and trade fair is looking forward with optimism.

Called “Up the Ante: Innovate!,” the 54th annual manufacturers conference is being held at Caesar’s Windsor Oct. 23-25, and is being billed as a place for members, vocational truck manufacturers, their dealers, suppliers, and service providers to network.

With educational sessions featuring topics such as, why the future of carbon pricing will have a positive effect on the Canadian economy, new tire regulations and technology, and an OEM panel on the future of trucking, the forward-thinking theme of the event is clear.

Performance consultant Dr. Kimberley Amirault-Ryan will be the keynote speaker, talking about innovating and achieving sustained high performance under pressure. The only wom­an to be a performance consultant with the likes of the New York Rangers and New York Knicks, Amirault-Ryan has worked at five Olympic Games, as well as Fortune 500 companies.

This year will also see extended hours for its welcome reception and technical fair on opening night, as the fair has been reduced to just the first day of the conference.

The member’s annual general meeting will take place on the morning of day two, and a tour of the Detroit Diesel Manufacturing plant, as well as the annual CTEA reception and gala, will round out day three.

The group says the conference is meant to keep industry leaders up-to-date with legislative, economic and technical advancements, as well as taking input from members.
