About LQ:

LQ’s Symposiums are unique. They offer:

• Thought leadership from across North America
• Short, insightful presentations by keynote speakers
• Discussion-based sessions - LQ's "Executive Exchange" of ideas
• Limited seating to ensure a friendly and personalize exchange of ideas

LQ's Executive Exchange is an international forum to exchange ideas between leaders from Canada and the United States, reflecting the fact that the U.S. and Canada are each other’s greatest trading partners – and the largest trading partners in the world, with some $680 billion in goods and services changing hands each year between our nations.

LQ’s Symposiums are an extension of LQ Magazine, and its distinctive place in the market given their its mix of Canadian and American readers alike -- and an editorial environment offering ideas for leadership in logistics and transportation – for Canadians and Americans alike.
