WINNIPEG, Man. — The sixth Supply Chain Connections Conference is coming to Winnipeg this fall. With a “Northern Exposure” theme, the conference will look at transportation requirements and alternatives for moving goods and people to and from Northern places using air, rail, road and water transportation. While the conference will have a Prairies-Territories focus, organizers say they are interested in northern transport routes across Canada.

Speakers at the event include representatives from Canadian North, Port of Churchill and Hudson Bay Railroad, with more speakers and a firm agenda to be available on in the coming weeks.

The conference is being held at the Delta Winnipeg Sept. 29-30. Those who register before Aug. 20 will pay the early bird rate of $395 + GST. After Aug. 20, the price rises to $450 + GST. The cost includes two breakfasts, two luncheons, all breaks and banquet on Sept. 29.

Those booking a room at the Delta Winnipeg (888-890-3222) can quote group code 0910UOFM_001 to receive the conference rate of $109 per night.
