TORONTO, Ont. – Over 300 fleets and gas industry representatives will be meeting in two weeks’ time at the Natural Gas Vehicles Canada Conference & Exhibition at the Westin Prince Hotel in Toronto from October 20-22.
The conference will provide attendees with valuable information about NGVs and key note presenters will be giving updates on LNG and CNG refueling infrastructure. Presenters of the conference include: Gordon Exel, president, Cummins Westport Inc; Timothy M. Egan, president and CEO, Canadian Gas Association; Kelly Hawes, president, Cold Star Freight; Mike Britt, director, UPS Inc.; Scott Perry, vice-president – natural gas, Ryder System; Mauro Fantin, national transportation manager, Labatt Breweries of Canada.
A few of the fleets that have already registered to participate are: Sleeman Breweries, Walmart Canada, Coca Cola Canada, Tim Hortons and Maple Leaf Foods.
“We had an extremely successful conference in 2013,” said conference organizer Theo Larn-Jones. “We’re excited to see that the market for natural gas for on-road applications continues to expand in Canada, and it’s great to see so many fleets and municipalities registered to attend the meeting this year. We’re seeing the development of a growing, profitable, and sustainable market for vehicles powered by natural gas or Biomethane in Canada – and that’s great news for Canadian companies and communities. We’re providing an opportunity for fleets to learn from each other about the opportunity to use NG, and to spend time with key vendors to assess their fit with natural gas fuels and equipment.”
