Registration is now open for the PTDA 2020 Canadian Conference, to be held June 3-4, 2020, at Marriott on the Falls, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. This conference brings key decision-makers of the Canadian power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry together for business networking and education.
The two-day conference is packed with great informal and formal networking opportunities such as golf, meals, and DM-IDEX. DM-IDEX (Distributor-Manufacturer Idea Exchange) provides distributor and manufacturer companies the opportunity to schedule one-on-one meetings in advance.
Attendees will have plenty of opportunities to gather actionable ideas from speakers that they can take home and immediately implement in their companies. Roundtable discussions give CEO/Senior Executives the opportunity to brainstorm and exchange ideas. The Leadership Enhancement Seminar presented by Bobby Umar, a prominent leadership expert, focuses on redefining leadership in 2020 and identifying a strong thought leadership personal brand. Andy Stumpf, Naval veteran and former member of the U.S. elite SEAL Team 6, kicks off the conference sharing how great leaders can elicit performance beyond what an individual considers possible. Finally, Meagan Johnson, a generational expert, outlines how each generation’s “signpost” drives motivation and influences company loyalty, delivery of customer service and communication.
“Developing in-person relationships with the manufacturer staff that we work with on a daily basis brings tremendous value to the supply-chain services that we provide to the end-user. PTDA’s Canadian Conference is the best opportunity to see all the important players in the same place for a couple of days,” said JP Bouchard, vice president, General Bearing Service Inc.
PTDA is a member-driven organization led by volunteers who work with their peers in the industry to develop relevant and timely content and programming. Using the expertise of several of the industry’s top executives, the programming for the Canadian Conference is specifically designed for Canadian distributors and manufacturers who sell power transmission/motion control products in Canada. With new sessions each year, the conference goal is to inform and educate with relevant and timely material.
