WASHINGTON, D.C., April 6, 2021 – Registration is now open for what is expected to be the logistics industry’s first national live event following the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 CLDA Final Mile Forum & Expo will take place June 23-25 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. It will feature educational sessions, networking events and a front row seat on the industry’s latest innovations.

The theme of the event is “Beating the Odds: Getting Back to Business,” and the program will include:

  • 10 educational sessions featuring new ideas, best practices, emerging verticals and M&A activity in the industry
  • 12+ hours of dedicated networking time for business development and reconnecting with business associates in the industry
  • New products and solutions for growing bottom lines and strengthening companies in the CLDA Exchange Hall

“We are looking forward to catching up with industry colleagues and reconnecting with old friends. After a year of virtual interaction, it'll be great to connect in-person again,” says Final Mile Forum & Expo Chair, Tom Jowers. “The 2020 Final Mile Forum in Miami was our best attended conference in 15 years, and we’re expecting this one to generate the same kind of enthusiasm.”

Registration is now open on the CLDA website, with CLDA members receiving a discount of more than 35% on their registration.
