PFN is planning its inaugural annual conference in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The Netherlands is the home country of
our organization and it is a privilege and great opportunity to host the inaugural meeting right here in the capital of the country. In the future we will travel the conference along the countries of our members but we see this as the start and the home town is a great place to be.
At this inaugural meeting we expect to have 50 members which is a great start of our organization in its start-up year. We are also communicating negotiating with keynote speakers whom have earned their place in this industry and it will be an honor to have them with us. At a later stage, when all is final, we will let you know who they are. I can guarantee you that you will be surprised and pleased when you do as these people have contributed to our industry in more then one way and who are taking positions in the project freight and heavy lift world that have been earned.
Amsterdam is the place for one of the first and most successful network organizations in the history, the VOC (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie), also referred to as the, Dutch East India Company, originally established in 1602. This is the perfect place for PFN to have its inaugural annual meeting, right in the middle of this historian city that has contributed so much to today’s way of doing business. The success of the VOC had all to do with logistics.
The program for the two days will be very exciting and we will let you know what is going to happen and what will be on the agenda in the next weeks and months to come. We know it is still early day but we want to ensure that all our member are able to get these days reserved.
We look forward welcoming our members to the meeting as well as our sponsors and the keynote speakers.
