WASHINGTON, D.C. August 26, 2013 – “People, Processes and Profitability” will be the theme of the Customized Logistics and Delivery Association’s annual Last Mile Delivery Forum. The association (previously known as MCAA) will hold their annual fall conference at The Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, MO from Thursday, October 10 to Saturday, October 12. This annual educational and networking event draws over 175 delivery and service providers, shippers, and representatives of third party logistics companies (3PLs) from throughout the logistics and delivery industry.

“This year’s Last Mile Forum is all about making the most of the resources that delivery providers have through the people and processes they use to serve their customers,” says Kirk Godby, chair of the event. “These fall conferences are designed to give practical tips and information about the latest developments in our industry. We expect everyone who attends to leave with information they can use as soon as they get back to their desks. This year, our presentations will cover such diverse topics as business development, referral marketing, making the most of the people your work with, strategic planning, disaster preparedness and dealing with healthcare reform.”

Sponsorships are still available and start at $1,500. A limited number of major sponsorships are also still available. Exhibitors will get over 14 hours of exposure to the Forum’s projected 175+ attendees. Fees for these tabletop booth spaces include entry for one attendee. For CLDA members, the cost is $1,450. Non-members can exhibit for $1,950.

Fees for current CLDA members are: $650 for the first attendee and $550 before September 6 ($750 and $650 after that date). For non-members, the cost is $850 before September 6 and $950 after that date. For those registering at the door, the cost will be $100 additional.

Rooms at the Westin Crown Center must be booked separately. CLDA has obtained a special group rate of $159.00 per night. Reservations must be made by September 9, 2013 to ensure rates and availability. Reservations can be made online or by phone (816-474-4400).
