FIATA and the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA) and Vancouver, Canada, invite you to attend the FIATA World Congress, September 23-26, 2008. Vancouver is the Host City of the 2010 Winter Olympics and is one of the world’s most beautiful and most liveable cities. At once cosmopolitan and laid-back, it is noted for its civic and cultural innovation and is recognized as a leader in the areas of sustainability, accessibility and inclusively.
Vancouver is a critical gateway to the Pacific trade lanes and inasmuch plays an important role in transport and logistics. With the current construction of Prince Rupert as an additional container port in northern British Columbia, the combined port capacity will serve not only all of Canada but also the US Midwest and the important western US states of Washington, Oregon and California.
Today, Canada has a unique opportunity to build an enduring national advantage upon its current economic strength, and to expand its capacity to translate new ideas into products, processes and services in the market. The latter is the key to success in a world where competition is global, change is rapid, and knowledge is a critical source of competitive advantage. But, first, we must act.
Attend the 2008 FIATA Congress and take advantage of this networking opportunity and meet with your current agents in Canada. It’s your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop new business relationships and to gain a competitive edge. It’s also an opportunity to take advantage of Vancouver’s proximity to the United States. May we take this opportunity, once again, to extend a warm invitation to all and we look forward to seeing you at the FIATA WORLD CONGRESS 2008.
