Canada Logistics Conference 2015 - Full Program of Learning Sessions & Networking Events

Toronto, Ontario – August 6, 2015 - Canada Logistics Conference 2015, the nation’s annual thought leadership event for the supply chain logistics sector, presented by CITT, will take place this fall in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The three day learning and networking event begins October 25th with an opening networking reception where shippers, carriers, and ancillary service providers will mingle and network prior to two days of educational sessions hand-picked for industry relevance. The seven learning sessions will run October 26-27, and will be interspersed with many dedicated networking breaks. The conference will culminate in the prestigious annual Gala Awards Dinner, recognizing excellence in supply chain logistics and the CITT community.

2015 marks the Conference’s return to central Canada after last year’s incredibly successful 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.”

Among the logistics-focused content is the first session, the Canadian Regulatory Primer, 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. Delegates 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. In broader business topics, Canada Logistics Conference 2015 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.
