The conference which is taking place in Shenzhen, China got underway yesterday and will continue through until tomorrow, featuring an impressive listing of speakers who will offer up their background and experiences in the world of shipping to draw attention to the growing exchange between Asia and our continent.
Listed among those attending this years conference, the Port and CN share duties in waving the Maple Leaf with a number of other Canadian companies, but by far the conference is one dedicated to gaining more access to the Asian markets.
And so far, both the Port and CN have been on the mark in getting the Prince Rupert Advantage story to the audience, whether through their work at the convention site in Shenzhen, or through social media with a number of info graphics recently posted to their respective twitter feeds to showcase some of the key aspects of shipping through Fairview Terminal.
