April 4 - Members of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) will gather at the Hard Rock Hotel in Panama from April 13-15 for the network's 16th annual membership conference.

A representative from the Panama Canal Authority will open the conference with a presentation outlining the canal expansion project and its ability to increase capacity of the waterway for global shipping.

Hosted and sponsored by WWPC member in Panama, Quality Freight Corp, the event will also be attended by a number of selected sponsors and trade media.

The conference auction will be held in support of the charity Asociacion Pro Ninez Panamena. Last year the WWPC raised a record USD41,000 at its auction in Fuengirola, Spain.
