Tiaca Executive Summit postponed

Tiaca and event co-organiser Messe München have taken the decision to delay the Tiaca Executive Summit and Transport Logistics Americas Forum until next year.

The combined four-day event had been scheduled to be held in San Francisco from September 21-24 but has now been postponed to March 22-25, 2022.

“With the recent announcement by the US administration that the existing travel ban on people arriving from the UK, EU, China, India, South Africa, Brazil, and others will not be lifted in the foreseeable future meant that it is impossible to welcome all delegates who have indicated their desire to attend,” Messe München said.

“This is very disappointing news as recent indications were that the ban was anticipated to be lifted soon. It is also unfortunate that Covid infections, particularly the Delta variant, are rising and thus additional restrictions are to be expected, which means that parts of the new event concept cannot be fully realised.

“We are confident that the revised dates will provide sufficient additional time for greater numbers of people to be vaccinated and address the current rise in infections.

“We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this postponement causes, but I’m sure you will agree with us that it was the right decision to take.”
