MONTREAL, QC – Transport Routier publisher Newcom Media Quebec and the equipment testers at PIT Group are in the midst of planning Sommet Canadien sur l’Entretien de Flotte (SCEF) – the Montreal installment of the Canadian Fleet Maintenance Summit. And that work involves preparing for the arrival of a Dragon.

Serial entrepreneur Alexandre Taillerfer of the electric taxi service Teo Taxi, and a former Dragon from Radio-Canada’s version of the program Dragons’ Den, is confirmed as a keynote speaker for the April 19 event at Marriott Chateau Champlain Montreal.

Where the Canadian Fleet Maintenance Summit was offered along with last year’s Truck World show in Toronto, the SCEF will be run the day before ExpoCam 2017. It is also supported by the Quebec Trucking Association (ACQ), the Quebec Trucking Technical Committee (CTCQ) and the Society of Transportation Superintendants of Quebec (SST). Transport Routier is Today’s Trucking’s sister publication in Quebec.

“We are very excited about the organization of this first edition of the SCEF in Montreal,” said Steve Bouchard, editor-in-chief of Transport Routier magazine. “We are working to put in place a very high level of technical content, which will give the floor to the best speakers in the world of fleet management and maintenance. The participation of an entrepreneur of the caliber of Alexandre Taillefer gives a taste of the quality that will be offered on this day.”
