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 www.fleetsafetycouncil.com for details. The committee is also seeking sponsors to ensure another fantastic event this year.

For more information on attending or sponsoring this event, please contact Rick Brown or George Iacono.

What can we do to minimize our risk? There will be a panelist table for you all, and behind you a large (but blank) puzzle. We will be performing a “trip” from Toronto to LA, and each type of risk we cover will be another piece of the puzzle.  Regardless of the order, with your guidance and suggestions we will eventually put all our pieces together, safely negotiating our way to delivery of both our cargo, and the information we impart. Time permitting, there will be a general Q and A session at the close.
