The PMTC’s 2019 Annual General Meeting and Conference was the most successful event in the history of the PMTC! The response from Sponsors and attendees shattered all previous records, and the early returns from our questionnaire’s sent out indicate people were very satisfied with the educational value provided by our seminar speakers, and the networking opportunities provided during our exhibitor showcases.

This was the 5th year in a row that we have set new attendance records, this year reaching 259, surpassing last years total of 204. Sponsors and exhibitor participation also set new highs. We actually sold out of space on March 18th and ended up having to turn 9 sponsors away as a result of simply having no more room!

Work on next year’s conference has already began, with the 2020 conference being held June 10th to the 12th, also in Niagara Falls, but at a new Hotel, the Sheraton on the Falls. The new venue will allow us more room to continue to grow the conference. Planning for conference content will also begin in the next month. Those who sponsored this year will be given first opportunity to confirm your space for next year, watch for this communication from our office in October. The PMTC and its member’s thank you all for your support, and hope to see you out again next year to continue the upward trend! Please feel free to reach back to our office at any time by emailing Annette at info@pmtc.ca, or call us at 905-827-0587.
