The TIA 2018 Conference gives you the opportunity to meet with like-minded people where you can bounce ideas, learn from others, discuss transportation challenges, and how to adopt the latest innovations and technology.
Networking with Peers
Industry-based conferences, like TIA 2018 Conference, provides a great opportunity to network. While competitors tend to avoid one another in business, conferences allow us to leave everything at the door and gives us a chance to meet new people within the industry. This can become a valuable resource for referrals and best-practices. Remember that by avoiding peers, you can end up limiting your own success, so focus on collaborating and working together to uncover new business approaches that will grow the logistics industry.
