Announcement: Hwy H2O Conference 2009 Nov. 3 & 4

The Hwy H2O Conference is organized and hosted by the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation under the banner of its Hwy H2O marketing initiative. The conference which will be held on November 3-4 at the Toronto Airport Marriott is a forum during which recent opportunities, developments, and issues relevant to marine transportation on the Great Lakes / Seaway are discussed.

The theme of this year's Hwy H2O Conference is 'Optimizing Today, Positioning for Tomorrow'. The challenging economic climate has caused changes to the business environment of the Great Lakes / Seaway System and the industry must properly position itself for the future. With this in mind, conference panel sessions will focus on the market overview and industry outlook, marine policy issues, short sea shipping development and new cargo opportunities for the System, including biomass. The conference has become a well-recognized annual event and networking experience, attended by over 130 marine mode stakeholders, logistics providers, shippers, and transportation professionals from Canada, the U.S. and abroad.
