The Small Business in Transportation Coalition (SBTC) is hosting an educational and networking conference for the trucking industry, scheduled for September 12th – 15th, 2014.
Founded by James Lamb, President of Fort Lauderdale based, Association of Independent Property Brokers and Agents (AIPBA) the SBTC is a “network of transportation professionals and industry suppliers who seek to promote and protect the small business players in the transportation industry.”
The Industry at Sea event is a three-night Nassau, Bahamas cruise aboard the Royal Caribbean’s Enchantment of the Seas, departing from Port Canaveral, Florida with a stop-over at the cruise line’s private island, CocoCay.
The event seeks to bring those involved within the brokerage and trucking industry supply chain, as well as truck drivers’ owner operators, to meet and network together in order to build a more transparent and colleague relationship.
The special cruise event requires no conference or registration fees and for trucking industry professionals planning to attend, it is recommended that they secure their room by June 29th in order to obtain best pricing.
