Sebastiaan Scholte on Air Cargo Europe

Posted By Administration, Thursday, June 15, 2017



Air Cargo Europe in Munich, Germany was a very exciting event where we were able to meet the whole industry. Obviously, TIACA was present there as well.


Many companies showed interest in the ACF in Toronto, Canada and we were able to bring on new exhibitors for this special event in 2018.


But besides the upcoming ACF in Toronto, we have scheduled a lot of interesting events in the coming months as well.




Hereunder is a list of the upcoming events:


- TIACA will jointly organize a conference from June 26 to 29 with the Cool Chain Association and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Africa is booming in terms of perishable growth and Addis Ababa is developing itself in a hub thanks to the rapid growth of Ethiopian Airlines. This conference offers a unique opportunity to talks to shippers, forwarders, airlines and also to authorities regarding African air cargo development.


- A four-day workshop aimed at enhancing management skills for air cargo professionals will be conducted by TIACA in Anchorage, Alaska from August 29th to September 1st, 2017.
The Professional Development Workshop Program, designed by Strategic Aviation Solutions International (SASI) in partnership with 
TIACA, gives participants an appreciation of the entire air cargo supply chain and the component sectors by encouraging discussion and the sharing of perspectives, as well as providing practical advice and insight.


- TIACA’s 2017 Executive Summit, “Future Proofing Air Cargo” takes place at Turnberry Isle Resort & Golf Club, Miami, USA from October 18th to 20th. In addition to plenary sessions, delegates are invited to attend a series of workshops that will debate some of the most topical issues for the international air cargo industry.


TIACA's Executive Summit is attended by industry professionals to discuss critical issues impacting all in the air cargo industry, providing a platform for top logistics executives across all sectors to come together to attend plenary sessions, workshops, and panels led by esteemed industry speakers.


We have also been approached by various companies who expressed interest in developing young talent after the successful initiative last year in the Netherlands where six “high potentials” from all parties in the air cargo chain spent a full week visiting each other’s companies and discussing the business challenges each of them is facing.


We are also in talks with universities for executive education to complement our successful professional workshop program.
