Indiana Secretary of Commerce Victor Smith will headline The Rail Summit 2014, which returns to Chicago this summer.
The annual conference for railroad industry professionals will take place between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. at the Union League Club in Chicago on June 6.
MEP&A, a Chicago-based communications, consulting, branding and event marketing firm, coordinates the gathering, which is intended a forum where railroad executives can initiate business deals.
This year's theme is "rail delivers jobs." The daylong conference features two VIP panels and four breakout sessions on subjects such as "Delivering Logistics For The Future, Indiana’s Journey" and "Why Shale Gas Will Drive a U.S. Manufacturing Revolution."
Keynote speakers include PLG Consulting CEO and founder Graham Brisben, OmniTRAX chairman Brad Skinner and Vickerman Associates CEO John Vickerman. They will discuss the evolving transportation impacts of shale development, energy independence, and emerging trade and intermodal growth opportunities for the Midwest.
