(March 23, 2016) – Atlas Van Lines is headed to the Windy City to host its 49th Annual Forum. The event will take place April 21-22 at the Chicago Marriott Downtown hotel on Magnificent Mile and bring together hundreds of the country's leading corporate relocation and mobility professionals.

Atlas Forum attendees will have the opportunity to learn from industry experts on a number of relevant topics, participate in breakout learning sessions and hear from nationally-recognized keynote speakers. The event is one of the best opportunities to connect with others, share best practices and learn from peers. Atlas will also launch the results of its 49th Annual Corporate Relocation Survey, which highlights the noteworthy trends in mobility as identified by nearly 450 human resource and relocation professionals.

“This event is not only great for networking purposes, but it is truly a learning opportunity. Top industry professionals will all be under one roof to share their experiences, challenges and successes with one another,” said Glen Dunkerson, chairman and CEO of Atlas World Group. “Our team has planned an outstanding event and we are excited to experience it with our friends and colleagues.”

Forum 2016 will begin April 21 with breakfast and a welcome speech from Glen Dunkerson. A presentation by Scott Michael, President & CEO of the American Moving and Storage Association and closing remarks from Jack Griffin, President and COO of Atlas, will follow. The first day will feature a luncheon and keynote speaker Lori Greiner. Known as the “Queen of QVC,” Greiner has helped launch more than 400 products and holds 120 U.S. and international patents. Greiner is a cast member of hit ABC series, “Shark Tank” and hosts her own show, Clever & Unique Creations by Lori Greiner. The day will continue with breakout roundtable discussions, in which attendees will examine relocation policy trends. Guests can look forward to setting sail and enjoying after-hours entertainment on an Odyssey Cruise on Navy Pier.  

Forum 2016 will conclude on April 22 with breakfast and a call to order from Atlas President and COO, Jack Griffin. After breakfast, the event's final guest speaker, Navy SEAL Commander and Author Rorke Denver, will speak on his experiences of running every phase of training for the U.S. Navy SEALs and how he led special-forces missions in the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and other international hot spots.
