A month before the Florida event, on the other side of the Atlantic, the European Cold Storage & Logistics Association (ECSLA) will hold the 18th Cold Chain Logistics Conference & Trade Show March 25-27 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Uldrich’s speech at the IARW-WFLO Convention, based on his book, Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow, will explore what the world of 2020 might look like and how cold storage operators can respond to the inevitable business changes that will occur. The keynote presentation will take place on April 27, 8:30-10:15 AM, during the opening general session.
Corey Rosenbusch, president and ceo of the IARW and WFLO, commented: “Our convention theme is Delivering Value, and Uldrich’s insights are critical to helping cold chain logistics companies ensure that they continue to provide value during the coming decade. We look forward to hearing this analysis of emerging trends and how our industry can prepare for them.”
