For immediate release
 
AGENDA ANNOUNCED FOR PMTC 2024 CONFERENCE AND AGM-REGISTRATION IS OPEN
 
Milton, ON: The Private Motor Truck Council of Canada has announced the full agenda and schedule for its 2024 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.  “As a result of the growth of the conference and sell outs for both sponsors and attendees for the last 2 in person conferences, the PMTC is excited to be moving to a new venue this year, and at attendee’s request, moving back to Niagara Falls, ON. This year’s conference will be held at the Niagara Falls Convention Centre. The new venue will allow for improved flow in the sponsor’s exhibit area as well as better sightlines and spacing while attending our best-in-class educational seminars. “ New this year, to encourage fleets to attend and stay in the exhibit area throughout the exhibition times, 3 cash draws of $300.00 each will be held in the exhibitors showcase on both days 1 and two. Only principle members in attendance at the time of the draws will be eligible to receive the cash awards”.
 
The conference will kick off the afternoon of June 18th with the Annual General Meeting for the membership.
 
On the evening of the 18th , the PMTC Young Leaders Group & TruckRight will host our annual Pre-Conference Cocktail Reception for conference sponsors, speakers, the PMTC Board of Directors, all registered conference attendees, as well as all PMTC Young Leaders Group members. In 2023 the pre-conference reception was attended by over 200 people.  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 19th, starting at 8 am, the educational portion of the conference will begin and continue into the 20th.  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 attached to this message, as well as up on the PMTC website at www.pmtc.ca.
(Conference agenda and schedule subject to change with out notice)
