Air Cargo News Awards and Conference postponed

By Damian Brett

The Air Cargo News team has taken the decision to postpone this year’s awards and conference in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The move comes as the last 48 hours have seen several new travel bans and restrictions on large gatherings put in place.

The Air Cargo News team is also mindful of the extreme pressure that businesses in the aviation industry are being placed under as a result of the outbreak.

Air Cargo News publisher Mark Pilling said: “We have not taken the decision to postpone the Air Cargo News Awards and Conference lightly.

“However, the air cargo industry – and the wider world – is facing an unprecedented challenge that it needs to face head on. We hope to re-organise the event for later in the year, at a time the industry can begin to once again look forward.”

The Air Cargo News team hopes to be able to announce a new date for the event over the coming weeks.

Winners will be announced at the re-arranged event.
