The IWLA Convention & Expo is where North American warehouse logistics leaders gather, make connections, learn, network, and work together for a stronger industry.
And the 2017 event, March 19-21 in Palm Springs, Calif., will attract warehousing professionals from around the globe as members of the International Federation of Warehousing and Logistics Associations (IFWLA) will join IWLA members for a dual meeting.
