Abbotsford, BC – TRUXPO, Western Canada’s largest trucking and logistics show, is presented in partnership with the British Columbia Trucking Association (BCTA) and takes place September 19-20, 2014 at TRADEX in Abbotsford.
Show organizers are thrilled to announce the addition of Michael “Pinball” Clemons as the keynote speaker for the industry luncheon, a new component of the conference program for the 2014 edition. Clemons joins the Honourable Todd Stone, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, who will give opening remarks and officially open the show.
As a former all-star running back, Grey Cup winning coach, President and CEO, and now the Vice-Chair for the Toronto Argonauts, Michael “Pinball” Clemons is a man of unquestionable character and spirit. He is equally renowned for his achievements on the football field as he is for his impact as a motivational speaker. He inspires audiences by demonstrating what it means to beat the odds and encourages listeners to use teamwork to achieve their goals.
TRUXPO attracts local, national and international exhibitors and visitors and showcases new products and the latest in commercial trucking, logistics and transportation equipment. This year, it will take over the entire TRADEX complex, plus 80,000 square feet of outdoor exhibit space. To date, the show is 95% sold out.
In addition to the industry luncheon, the 2014 TRUXPO conference program features seminars that offer a look ahead at British Columbia’s economy, as well as information on how industry members can support growth and take advantage of upcoming opportunities in key resource sectors. Presented by the BCTA, it will include updates from key personnel in sectors such as mining, construction, intermodal shipping, forestry, and oil and gas.
