It’s that time of year again for us to meet up at the 2022 IWLA Convention and Expo — in person! If you haven’t heard, this is the place to be if you are a warehouse leader in North America.
Each year, this annual conference brings together hundreds of third-party logistics (3PL) and warehouse leaders. The convention provides valuable educational content, opportunities to roam the expo hall and see what is new, and network with peers at a variety of events. Overall, it is one of the logistics industry's best events built specifically for warehouse professionals—especially if you like to network!
It is also a little-known fact that extensive learning leads to extreme fun.
And This Year’s Theme Is….
Every year, IWLA chooses an important theme to help highlight the challenges today’s warehouse leaders may face. This year it is “Catch 22 – Don’t Let Success Ruin Your Warehouse.” With ecommerce helping boost order volumes for many businesses, it is important to make sure these surges don’t create inherent issues in the warehouse or for consumers. Thus, creating a problematic issue or “Catch 22.”
To help share how warehouses can survive success, there is a full agenda stacked with keynote speakers and breakout sessions. Topics include a keynote address from Dave Berry on the modern supply chain, breakout sessions on real estate, warehouse law, succession planning, and more.

This year, 3PL Central will be speaking on two panels designed to help 3PLs get the most out of their business. Join us on May 4th from 1:30 – 3:00 pm for one of these two can’t miss sessions.
