CHICAGO—The Power Transmission Distributors Association will conduct its Virtual Canadian Conference June 9-10. Those interested in the online industry gathering can register at ptda.org/CanadianConference.
The conference represents a meeting of the minds for the Canadian power transmission/motion control industry, bringing movers and shakers together for networking and education.
There will be both formal and informal opportunities to meet, the latter via a virtual lounge that mimics a cocktail party environment. There will be opportunities for one-on-one meetings as well.
"We are excited to be back together this year to spend time focusing on the Canadian distribution market," said Ellie Girard of Lubriplate Lubricants Co. "It's a great opportunity to discuss mutual business in one place as well as network with others in the industry."
Speakers will include Michael Bach, CEO of the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion, who will discuss business implications of diversity and inclusion. U.S. Navy veteran Andy Stumpf, a former member of the elite Seal Team 6, will discuss how successful leaders can bring out employee performance beyond what that employee thought was possible.
The Canadian Conference is designed for Canadian distributors and manufacturers who sell power transmission/motion control products in Canada.
The PTDA represents industry firms that generate more than $20 billion in sales and span more than 2,700 locations.
