August 19 - Project forwarder network, the Project Professionals Group (PPG), is set to celebrate its tenth anniversary on August 27.

PPG founder and general manager Kevin Stephens said since forming the network it had attracted an experienced and trusted group of project forwarders from around the world.

"Managing high value project cargos is a specialised industry and I am very proud of the reputation our members have in meeting the needs of their clients," Mr Stephens said.

"PPG has very loyal members and sponsors and I would like to thank them all for their support over the past 10 years."

Mr Stephens added the network was also very appreciative of the guidance of the PPG Advisory Board chaired by Susan St Germain of TransProject LLC, from the USA.

To celebrate the 10-year milestone, PPG will hold its annual conference in Australia where the organisation was first formed. Melbourne will be the host city from 6-8 September, next year.
