THE SURFACE TRANSPORTATION SUMMIT & FMA’S 2017 COCKTAIL RECEPTION 
WILL BE HELD ON OCTOBER 11 IN MISSISSAUGA

Learn and celebrate with over 200 supply chain executives


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
Ottawa, ON (September 27, 2017) -- Last year marked a major milestone for the Freight Management Association of Canada (FMA) with its 100th Anniversary on October 25 and Centennial Celebration on October 13. This year, FMA would like to continue the celebration and showcase and support shippers and carriers in Canada by inviting you to participate in its annual Cocktail Reception. The reception will be held on October 11 at the International Center, in Mississauga, immediately following the closing remarks at the Surface Transportation Summit.

 

“This event is perfect for meeting with both sides of the transportation world, for learning about the challenges affecting the industry today and for networking with fellow colleagues and making new connections. This event has everything in one day.” Kelsey Fulton, FMA Marketing Manager

There is no charge to attend FMA's Cocktail Reception. Register for the Surface Transportation Summit and receive a complimentary drink ticket or attend the Cocktail Reception at 4:30pm to network with over 200 supply chain professionals and other industry stakeholders. 

When the Association began back in 1916, it scheduled monthly meetings in the evenings.  This was before the era of TV and other electronic diversions and so these meetings were not only business but appear to have been at least partly social with an indication that there were usually refreshments involved. Even though we are in an era that is always digitally connected, personal networking remains an important way to find and maintain connections. Let’s take the time to meet face-to-face and celebrate the ever-changing transportation industry.
