Alexandria, VA –January 20, 2012-The Transportation Intermediaries Association, the voice of transportation intermediaries, will hold its 34th Annual Convention and Trade Show March 21-24, 2012 in San Antonio, Texas at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio. Seminars and workshops are focused on exploring the challenges facing the Third Party Logistics industry, providing real time solutions that work and offering strategies to cope with the current business climate. Details about the convention are available at www.tianet.org/conv12.
There will 3 pre-convention seminars: Exercises and Tools to help you improve your 3PL Sales, “Transportation, Logistics and the Law” for 3PLs, and Driving Profitable Growth through Incentives. In addition, 16 educational sessions in 4 tracks will be held and can be mixed and matched to create a unique learning experience.
The keynote speaker is Frank Miles, a professional speaker and entertainer whose keynote presentation is entitled “Laugh at Fear”. He has appeared multiple times on the TV show “America's Got Talent”, juggling half-million volt stun guns, knives and torches. Frank makes a dramatic point about what all these have in common, they all have handles. Just like life, there are parts you can get a grip on and parts you can't control. His fear-busting message is this: grab life by the handle, and the other end takes care of itself.
The Convention will provide outstanding opportunities to build relationships at numerous networking events including a 5K run/3K walk, a golf outing and the Chairman’s Reception and Award Dinner on Saturday night.
