About Air Cargo Africa 2017

Welcome to AIR CARGO AFRICA 2017

A promising global rendezvous in Africa: An absorbing and exciting frontier for new opportunities

AIR CARGO AFRICA 2017 is the mega event set for 21-23 February at Casino Convention Resort, Emperors Palace in City of Ekurhuleni engaging the global air cargo community to explore and strengthen networking corridors with the African Continent. In its past three editions, the show has seen major participation from world players so also key players from the African airfreight community. Africa is at the apex for being increasingly known as an emerging market and many that have been in the business for years have recognized this event as a platform for effective networking, turning this market into an exciting and absorbing frontier for new opportunities. Air Cargo Africa 2015 gathered a record number of 80 International Exhibiting Companies, 527 global industry decision makers as registered delegates and brought in an impressive number of 2915 trade visitors from across 29 African countries and 32 countries from other continents to explore business prospects. The event garnered a great support from the City of Ekurhuleni, which is home to the busiest airport in Africa, O.R. Tambo International airport which is envisioned to be built into an aerotropolis that will define the future of aviation for Africa. Executive Mayor City of Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality, Clr.MondliGungubele inaugurated the event. Once again, STAT Media Group (organizer and a multimodal international transport media) welcomes the unstinted support from the global cargo community, substantiating the event’s significance in adding value to the global trade balance and thereby fostering economic prosperity of the African nations.

What our leaders say about Air Cargo Africa 2015

    IATA

    “The Air Cargo Africa inaugural event was extremely successful because all participants benefitted from learning something new! If their business was local or regional then the event introduced them to global opportunities, and if you were previously shy of the Africa market, then Kenya and its neighbours would have opened your eyes! Well done Stat Times for the vision.

    “This was an enriching experience; providing a great opportunity for likeminded business persons to network as well as establish business ties. In future, let’s have the inclusion of more African players particularly in the conference discussions as well as provide more time for resolution of policy issues that arose in the discussions.“


Conference

4th Biennial International Conference & Expo

The world will gather with an insatiable appetite for the Continent’s untapped natural resources, vast supplies of minerals and of course the ever-increasing demand for consumer goods. Airlines and freight companies know all too well that the potential in Africa is underutilized. In fact, the business world sees Africa as a new pasture. An enormous Continent with 20% of the world’s surface area and holds 15% of the global population certainly presents phenomenal opportunities. According to IMF (International Monetary Fund) data, Sub-Saharan Africa has grown at an annual rate of 4.8 percent over the last five years, beating other emerging regions like Latin America (3.3%).

About the organizer:-

The STAT Trade Times magazine is a trade journal that provides constant updates on the changing and rapidly developing industry trade platforms and provides a ground for continuous feedback and derivatives to understand new markets, make choices and trigger new developments for trade and strategies to penetrate emerging and fast growing markets. Let’s make a change: To enable the coming possibility for constant rapid development we are concentrating on the emergence of new markets and hence have conceptualized and built platforms for networking through our industry events ‘Air Cargo India’ and ‘Air Cargo Africa’. The trade development and impact of our events have been tremendous. Following the success of these events we have actualized huge embellishments in the true perception for trade in these markets. When challenges are preluded there is much scope for trade and equal ground for traditional players to grab a Lion’s share!
