Fourth Annual Dry Bulk & Commodities Conference in Vancouver

This was the fourth year of ICS Dry Bulk Conference in Vancouver. We are pleased to say, that we were again fully booked out. We had 133 guests attending from a wide range within the industry including cargo Charterers, Owners, Terminal Operators, Agents, Brokers and Consultants. It was great to see the local support as well as guests attending from USWC, East Canada, Chile and our key speaker flying in from Hong Kong.  Traditionally, ICS Canada Branch provided sponsorship to the UBC and BCIT Marine Campus Students attending the Conference.

Here is what Ms. Stav Kimhi, student at the UBC Supply Chain Management Club said:

I can’t thank you enough for sponsoring me and other students from the UBC Supply Chain Club to attend the ICS Dry Bulk and Commodities Conference this past Thursday. I learned a lot from the conference and the people I met, and I’m even more interested in and excited about joining this expansive field. 

 As a student it was a great way to learn about the dry bulk industry and the many parties that make up this tight knit community. It was interesting to learn about how Canada is structuring its ports, infrastructure and transport systems in dealing with the increased demands for dry bulk from overseas, especially on the West Coast. And in meeting and talking with the other attendees, it was great to witness the long lasting relationships that have developed in the industry from around the world.

The ICS will continue to provide interested students the opportunity to attend future events to learn more about the industry and to network.

ICS Canada Branch thanks all our guests for their support as well as our speakers for their time and dedication. We would like also to take the opportunity to thank our sponsors for their continued support to this event.
