TORONTO, Ont. – CITT has officially opened registration for its annual Canada Logistics Conference – a thought leadership event for the supply chain logistics sector.
This year the event is taking place in Niagara Falls from October 25-27. On October 25, there will be an opening network reception. And from the 26-27 there will be seven learning sessions. The conference will culminate in the prestigious annual Gala Awards Dinner, recognizing excellence in supply chain logistics and the CITT community.
This year marks the conference’s return to central Canada after last year’s well-attended Calgary event.
“Building on the momentum of the 2014 conference, we couldn’t be more excited about this year’s program” said Catherine Viglas, president of CITT. “It’s one of the best programs of learning sessions we’ve ever had at our conference. We’re very excited about this year’s mix of logistics-specific and general business sessions relevant to issues facing the sector. The goal of each session is to provide delegates with strategies and insights that they can immediately apply as soon they get back to the office, whether they’re very senior decision makers or part of a larger team. And as always, there is plenty of time for delegates to network, make new business contacts, and reconnect with industry peers.”
The event’s first session, the Canadian Regulatory Primer is being presented by David Bradley, president and CEO of the Canadian Trucking Alliance & Ontario Trucking Association, and Ian MacKay, LL.B, a transportation lawyer with three decades of industry experience. Attendees of the event will get an up-to-the minute update and analysis of the regulations that impact both shippers and carriers, enabling them to avoid costly fines and delays. The conference will also feature sessions such as Attention Management, where delegates will learn how to address information overload that can decrease productivity throughout a business and a session on Sustainability Reports, presented by Paul Larson the CN Professor of Supply Chain Management at the University of Manitoba.
Early bird registration rates are available now until August 10. CITT encourages delegates to register early to secure a spot.
