Networking & Activities

Opening Reception

Tuesday’s Opening Reception will be held at the Grand Hall Bar. Join fellow attendees for hearty appetizers and beverages. This is a fantastic way to end the first day of the conference and connect with speakers and attendees.

Networking Industry Themed Lunch

Wednesday’s lunch is sorted by theme into separate rooms to help attendees identify where they want to sit. The room themes are Truck & Trailer Equipment, Rail Equipment, Trucking, Shippers, and Intermodal.

Networking Breaks

On Wednesday and Thursday, FTR offers two thirty-minute networking breaks between sessions. Fuel up on beverages and snacks, and gain access to the attendees you want to connect with. This is also a great time to follow up with 1 on 1 access to speakers.
