Canadian Conference

June 9-10, 2016
The Westin Ottawa
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

The PTDA 2016 Canadian Conference is now history. Participants can say they "Survived the Sinkhole of '16" in addition to meeting and greeting industry peers and getting business done. The sinkhole in downtown Ottawa which occured on Wednesday, just prior to the conference, caused some initial concern, but turned out to be a non-issue (except for a lack of hot water in the hotel for 24 hours which most everyone soldiered through with good humor!). Participants enjoyed industry networking opportunities, shared learning which provided take aways for immediate use on Canadian business information regarding recruitment, mining, team building and culture shifts specific to the power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry.
