The PTDA 2020 Canadian Conference is set to take place June 3 to 4, 2020, at Marriott on the Falls, in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The two-day event brings together decision makers of the Canadian power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry for networking and education.

It offers informal and formal networking opportunities, including golf, meals and Distributor-Manufacturer Idea Exchange (DM-IDEX), providing distributor and manufacturer companies the opportunity to schedule one-on-one meetings in advance.

Attendees will have opportunities to gather ideas from speakers. Roundtable discussions give CEOs/senior executives an opportunity to brainstorm and exchange ideas. A Leadership Enhancement Seminar presented by Bobby Umar, focuses on redefining leadership in 2020 and identifying a strong thought leadership personal brand.

Andy Stumpf, Naval veteran and former member of the U.S. elite SEAL Team 6, kicks off the conference sharing how great leaders can elicit performance beyond what an individual considers possible. Also, Meagan Johnson, outlines how each generations “signpost” drives motivation and influences company loyalty, delivery of customer service and communication.


“Developing in-person relationships with the manufacturer staff that we work with on a daily basis brings tremendous value to the supply-chain services that we provide to the end user.  PTDA’s Canadian Conference is the best opportunity to see all the important players in the same place for a couple days,” said JP Bouchard, vice president, General Bearing Service Inc.
