New date and venue announced for 2019 Fleet Safety Annual Educational Conference

(MISSISSAUGA)—The Fleet Safety Council is proud to unveil a new location for this year’s Annual Educational Conference.

After reviewing all of the feedback provided by our delegates and Fleet-Safety-Council-Logosponsors the FSC Conference Committee has decided to move the location of the conference to the Millennium Gardens Banquet Centre located at 20 Polonia Ave in Brampton. The new location will allow the conference to grow in the future as it has been at capacity over the past few years. The conference will be held on Friday October 4, 2019.

This one-day event (which is expected to sell out once again this year) will bring together fleet safety professionals from the truck, bus, courier, ready-mix, and waste management industries as well as insurance companies and other related businesses to discuss the latest industry trends.

The planning committee is currently working on this year’s speakers and themes. Stay tuned and visit for details. The committee is also seeking sponsors to ensure another fantastic event this year.
