The Containerization & Intermodal Institute (CII) will bring a one-day seminar to Houston TX on June 20, 2013, focusing on the Panama Canal, an update on US export initiatives, and breakbulk shipping.
Michael Masserman, executive director for export policy, promotion, and strategy, International Trade Administration, US Department of Commerce; and Rodolfo Sabonge, vice-president of market research and analysis, Panama Canal Authority, will be luncheon and keynote speakers, respectively. The seminar will be at the Houston Marriott North.
The luncheon will be followed by panel discussions including major shippers, ocean carriers, freight forwarders, railroads and Port of Houston officials. This is the second seminar to be held by the CII after 2012’s “Doubling US Exports—A Reality Check” event in Chicago IL.
After the panelist speeches will be a discussion among all the experts and a Q&A session. Tickets are $95, which includes the luncheon. Event sponsorships range from $500 to $5,000 and include attendees at the entire event, depending on level of sponsorship.
