Presentations also include international media publications Heavy Lift and Project Forwarding International and Breakbulk magazine.

A Certificate of Achievement in Project Cargo Management short course will be held over two days leading up to the conference at the same venue.

This ISO accredited training was designed to appeal to project forwarders seeking to fast track industry skills and knowledge.

PPG general manager Kevin Stephens said in addition to the invited speaker program and member meetings a number of networking activities had been organised including a typical Brazilian barbecue known as a Churrasaria, and a Plataforma evening featuring traditional Brazilian dancing.

“The PPG conference is our biggest event of the year and is designed to assist members, sponsors and supply chain partners to meet formally and informally to discuss key issues in addition to planning for new business growth,” Mr Stephens said.
