January 26, 2018 [Milton, ON] – The Private Motor Truck Council of Canada (PMTC) has announced the full agenda and schedule for its 2018 Conference.
“Each year those who attend the PMTC Annual Conference tell us it is one of the best educational and networking values they receive in the transportation industry. We believe this year’s line up of speakers continues to build on that reputation”, says PMTC President, Mike Millian.
The conference will kick off the afternoon of June 13th with the Annual General Meeting for the membership.
On the evening of the 13th, Volvo Trucks Canada will host the PMTC Young Leaders Group Pre-Conference Cocktail Reception for conference sponsors, speakers, the PMTC Board of Directors and all PMTC Young Leaders Group members. Last year the pre-conference reception was attended in record numbers. This year the reception will be held in the Sponsors Exhibitors’ Showcase area to provide more value to our conference partners and those who attend the pre-conference cocktail reception.
On June 14th, starting at 8 am, the educational portion of the conference will begin and continue into the 15th. Mixed in with this will be the PMTC awards program as well as several networking opportunities.
A schedule of topics and events is listed below, and the full brochure with details and registration is up on the PMTC website at www.pmtc.ca.
This year’s conference will take place at the Crowne Plaza-Fallsview, in Niagara Falls, ON.
Registration opened on January 2nd. For more information and sponsorship opportunities, you may also email Hinna Shaukat at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the office at 905-827-0587.
