Chicago, IL — PTDA Canadian Conference participants will take away the latest news and information on the Canadian economy, how demographic trends will affect the future of Canadian business, the impact of clean energy on business, and issues affecting the Canadian mining industry.

There will be two market briefing speakers who will address the interplay between the Canadian mining industry and the aboriginal community. Alec Morrison, director, MSABC relations, Mining Suppliers Association of BC, and Mike Bonshor, practice leader, MNP’s Aboriginal Consulting Services, will help participants gain ideas for addressing challenges and opportunities in Canada’s mining industry.

More than 220 distributors and manufacturers attended the 2011 PTDA Canadian Conference in Ottawa, and the association says it expects this number will be surpassed in 2012 thanks to the improving economy and the prime venue of the Fairmont Empress in Victoria, BC. “The hotel block is already 90% booked, and our registrations numbers have already surpassed those of last year — a full month prior to our first early-bird deadline,” said Kelly Butler, PTDA meetings and education manager.

The early-bird registration date is May 2, 2012. Participants who register by that date will save $50 off their registration fee. For more information about the Canadian Conference, please visit www.ptda.org/CanadianConference.

A US-based trade association, PTDA represents 178 power transmission/motion control distribution firms and 180 manufacturers that supply the PT/MC industry.
