More than 350 attendees are expected to be on hand for the 19th Annual Northeast Trade & Transportation Conference, scheduled for March 30-April 1 in the historic seaside resort of Newport, R.I. And with good reason: The conference organizer, the Coalition of New England Companies for Trade (CONECT), has put together a program that "covers the waterfront" when it comes to developments in international trade and transportation.
Among the topics on the agenda are West Coast ports and labor, the future of the Federal Maritime Commission, the impact of 3-D printing on logistics, and an update on U.S. Customs and Border Protection's security programs. Speakers will include Port of Long Beach CEO Jon Slangerup, FMC Chairman Richard Lidinsky, and CONECT Washington counsel Peter Friedmann.
