With Drive Conference

October 24, 2023

Radisson Hotel and Conference Centre Calgary Airport

The AMTA Western Women With Drive annual conference attracts professional women, their allies, and other stakeholders from across Alberta who work in a broad range of sectors within the commercial transportation industry.

The Conference brings together leaders and innovators from government; carriers, suppliers, and logistics companies; sponsors; and supporters for networking and discussion on a diverse range of leadership, safety, marketing, human resources, and other crucial industry topics. Western Women With Drive helps build and maintain a robust supply chain to advance and grow Alberta’s economy.

The inaugural Western Women With Drive took place October 2017. This conference would not be possible without the efforts and dedication of Trucking HR Canada (THRC) to diversify the commercial transportation industry.

Be part of the energy – Calgary

Also known as “Cowtown” to the rest of Canada, this cosmopolitan city is rooted in its wild Western heritage. It’s also Canada’s energy centre—both economically and culturally. You’ll never find yourself bored in Calgary.

Calgary has everything you’d expect from a big city: shopping, fine dining, museums, and endless entertainment options. The surrounding neighbourhoods each have a unique identity, with boutiques, breweries, and a bevy of public art. Two large rivers wind through it all, forever nourishing its parks and people. Take in the many sights, experiences, and activities while you are visiting.
