AGENDA ANNOUNCED FOR PMTC 2019 CONFERENCE AND AGM

Milton, ON: The Private Motor Truck Council of Canada has announced the full agenda and schedule for its 2019 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 12th with the Annual General Meeting for the membership.

On the evening of the 12th, Volvo Trucks Canada will host the PMTC Young Leaders Group Pre-Conference Cocktail Reception for conference sponsors, speakers, the PMTC Board of Directors, all registered conference attendee’s and all PMTC Young Leaders Group members. Last year the pre-conference reception was attended in record numbers. 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 13th, starting at 8 am, the educational portion of the conference will begin and continue into the 14th. 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. (Conference agenda and schedule subject to change with out notice)
