August 05, 2020
  • air cargo forum Miami—powered by TIACA—and transport logistic Americas 2020 cancelled
  • New format “2 plus 2” in autumn 2021 to bring the air cargo and supply chain management community together—2 days conference & 2 days inside innovation “California here we come”
  • next air cargo forum Miami & transport logistic Americas—exhibition and conference will be held November 8-10, 2022 at the Miami Beach Convention Center

Due to the spread of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and following the competent health authorities, Messe München and The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) are forced to cancel air cargo forum Miami & transport logistic Americas 2020. This step was further taken based on the feedback from majority of our registered exhibitors for not being able to join the event due to the current situation.

Gerhard Gerritzen, Deputy Managing Director of Messe München: “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.”

The cancellation is based on the current developments in Florida/Miami, the recent restrictions imposed in Miami-Dade County to curb the spread of COVID-19 as well as the ongoing worldwide travel restrictions. These points prevent Messe München and TIACA from organizing air cargo forum Miami & transport logistic Americas 2020 at an appropriate professional and secure level.

New event format “2 plus 2” in 2021

To support the industry and its needs in the meantime, Messe München and TIACA join forces again: A new event format called “2 plus 2” is scheduled for fall 2021 in California. “Still, there is a clear appetite and strong interest of our members and the wider industry to meet, network, learn and enjoy the great impact of our community. Therefore we ‘go west’: meet your supply chain fellows in fall 2021 at our ‘2 plus 2 ‘event in California. A two days conference followed by two days of innovation experience—California here we come.” says Steven Polmans, Chairman of TIACA.
