Freight industry to flock to Florida
14 / 03 / 2017
Miami, Florida will be the venue for the TIACA 2020 Air Cargo Forum (ACF), along with Multimodal Americas and Supply Chain Americas.
The biennial event brings together supply chain decision makers from across the globe for three days to network and learn from industry experts. TIACA secretary general Vladimir Zubko described ACF as “a unique opportunity for that community to get together to grow business,” pointing out also: “Miami is a vibrant, world-class trade community at the crossroads of the Americas and we are delighted to be holding our 2020 event there.”
Miami International Airport (MIA) is recognised as the world’s largest gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean, handling 83% of all air imports and 79% of all exports to and from the region.
Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Giménez added: "With one of the leading passenger and cargo airports in the world, in addition to world-class amenities throughout our county, we are prepared to host a successful Forum for our global guests."
MIA director Emilio González commented: “As the busiest US airport for international freight and the only US airport among the world’s top ten in that category, we welcome the opportunity to discuss MIA’s new initiatives and best practices with our counterparts from around the world.”
The event will be held at the Miami Beach Convention Center, which is currently being renovated at a cost of $525 million.
ACF 2018 will take place on 17-19 October at the Metro Toronto Convention Center in Canada.
