When will our two reps talk to the transportation directors?

During the event your reps will be engaged at the ice breaker and also during the problem solving-portion of each speaker discussion and interaction. It will take place within the mini-groups and the networking breaks will provide interaction too.


What is going to keep the directors there?

The content, speakers and peer discussions. It’s more about a team problem solving experience with focused meaningful content. Additionally F&B will be provided during the breaks and cocktail hour.


Is the Friday evening ice breaker like the cocktail hour after the general session speaker event in the past?

It’s a new fresh approach. We will have F&B provided and a cocktail hour for that Friday night. The ice breaker has structure with the speaker Dr. Stephen Sroka using t-shirts to thought cloud problems and solutions. Participating reps will have an opportunity to be introduced and recognized too.


Are our reps required to attend all of the sessions?

Yes, they are an important part of the discussion, problem solving and networking.


How do reps interact with the transportation directors during these sessions?

Discussions will take place within small mini-groups of three to four transportation directors and one assigned vendor partner.
