The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and MMI Asia signed a Memorandum of Understanding on 15 November 2021, to organise the Southeast Asian edition of Transport Logistics and Air Cargo for multiple biennial editions in Singapore, starting from 2023. This partnership includes the development of new content, programme and exhibition components for the tradeshow, marketing and publicity efforts, and areas of collaboration in industry knowledge exchange.
Michael Wilton, director and general manager, MMI Asia said, “In a disrupted world, the logistics industry has had to adapt, change and remain flexible in order to meet the extraordinary demands the global economies have placed on their sector. The event will enable the very best minds to meet, network and ensure they remain up to date with the latest trends and best practices in the industry. For shippers looking to address and solve the demands that have been forced on their distribution and logistics networks, the event will provide unparalleled access to the very best solutions and services available in the global market.”
The event will feature a high-level conference that will focus on specific subjects and issues facing the logistics ecosystem. Under a central theme of “Integrated Logistics for a Disrupted World”, the conference and educational sessions will address challenges and offer solutions for companies looking to thrive in this sector.
Lim Ching Kiat, managing director, Air Hub Development of Changi Airport Group commented, “Air cargo plays a key role in global trade and supply chains – its significance is further highlighted during the pandemic with the delivery of essential goods and medical supplies. Looking ahead, Southeast Asia’s share in global air trades is expected to increase, and global cargo hubs like Changi play a key role in supporting this growth. It is therefore very timely that the transport logistic and air cargo Exhibition and Conference launches an edition in this region. As a key air cargo and MICE hub in the region, we are excited to have the event anchored here in Singapore and we look forward to its successful launch.”
