Young Movers Conference 2018

The Young Movers Conference was held in Brussels, Belgium on May 3-5. The International Association of Movers was proud be a sponsor for the 9th year in a row!


With over 260 movers in attendance, this year's conference was one of the most successful to date. Conference highlights included networking, a port tour of Antwerp, interesting key note speakers and panelists that discussed the future of the industry and of course all of the fun that was had along the way.


IAM would like to sincerely thank Anne Van Gils and the organizing committee for putting on a flawless conference. We look forward to seeing everyone at next year's conference in Romania!


IAM-YP Teambuilding Event

Attending this year's Annual Meeting? Make sure to sign up for the YP teambuilding event!


In the United States, one in six children live in a food insecure household and do not always know where they will find their next meal. Providing weekend food bags is a way of providing “food security” to children and families so that they will not go to bed hungry and can return to school ready to learn come Monday morning.


During this year’s Team Building Activity YPs will prepare 180 weekend food backpacks that contain “kid-friendly” food products that will really make a difference in children’s lives.


The event will be held on Friday, October 5th from 1:00pm-3:30pm. Already registered for the Annual Meeting but not for teambuilding? Simply log back into your registration and sign up for the event.


Special thanks the the IAM-YP Teambuilding Sponsor: The DeWitt Companies.


Look for the IAM-YP Lounge in the Expo Hall!

The IAM-YP Lounge will be available again this year for your convenience in the Expo Hall. Here there will be refreshments and an ample amount of tables for you to have meetings. The lounge will be located at the back of the Exhibit Hall near where all of the food will be served giving you easy access to grab a quick bite in-between meetings.


A big thank you to the YP lounge sponsor: UNIRISC
