Air Cargo Forum 2020 stands cancelled, inform TIACA and Messe München
Yet another important industry event has succumbed to the Covid-19 crisis. The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) and Messe München has announced the cancellation of the Air Cargo Forum (ACF), originally scheduled to be held on 10-12 November 2020 in Miami.
Given the current developments in Florida and recent restrictions imposed in Miami-Dade County to curb the spread of COVID-19, taking into account the ongoing worldwide travel restrictions impacting exhibitors and visitors, TIACA and Messe München have been forced decided to reschedule the Air Cargo Forum which will be held on 8-10 November 2022 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
“Messe München and TIACA have always been committed to providing a much-needed platform in the US to the air cargo, logistics and supply chain management communities. Given the drastic impact the global Covid-19 pandemic currently has in Florida, we regret that holding the events this year is unfortunately not possible. With this, we also take into account the latest feedback and interest of the industry, that is heavily affected by the current crisis, and decided to re-schedule for November 2022,” - Gerhard Gerritzen, Deputy Managing Director of Messe München.
TIACA is still planning to host its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in 2020 and continues its call for nominations for the Hall of Fame and the Air Cargo Sustainability Awards. The AGM, which is the annual assembly of TIACA’s voting members, will be held as a digital event. The Hall of Fame, TIACA’s prestigious award for outstanding air cargo heroes, is maintained this year, but the ceremony itself will be held at a later stage when the situation allows. For the 2nd Air Cargo Sustainability Awards, sponsored by CHAMP Cargosystems, TIACA will organize a virtual event in Fall 2020 to keep pushing for and rewarding innovative sustainable practices. Additional details will be communicated shortly.
Special event format in 2021
To provide the air cargo and the supply chain community with a platform to meet, connect, learn and embrace new business opportunities, TIACA and Messe München are partnering to bring the industry together for a special event in the Fall of 2021 in California.
“Air cargo has been absolutely essential supporting the global supply chains, including the delivery of vital shipments of medicine and supplies fast and safely. I am confident that the opportunities the air cargo community is facing can help this industry come out of this crisis stronger, modern and more resilient to future shocks,” affirmed Polmans. “I look forward to welcoming all to a special event next year – a two-day conference followed by two days of unique innovation experience.”
