15 percent more space for more than 200 international exhibitors. The transport logistic Americas & air cargo forum trade show will be held Nov. 8-10, 2022, in Miami and is the largest logistics trade show in the world this year. Around four months before the start of the event, bookings with 75 percent are above plan. Messe München has therefore expanded the exhibition space together with cooperation partner TIACA (The International Air Cargo Association).
On the nearly 11,000 m² of exhibition space, from top 10 global players to startups, around 200 companies have booked or announced their presence at the show. Well-known logistics brands such as Ethiad Cargo, the Korean Air Cargo Hub Incheon, Miami Airport, FedEx or Rhenus Logistics are coming. Dr. Robert Schönberger, Head of transport logistic exhibitions at Messe München is satisfied: “This year we will have the largest logistics trade fair event—not only in the USA—but probably worldwide. Our cross-modal supply chain approach is working. Shippers, logistics and other service providers are offering the exhibition visitors building blocks they need for stable supply chains. In the long term, we see the new show as a supply chain platform for Americas.”
Suppliers from around the world will gather at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Exhibitors around the air cargo forum, founded by TIACA, form the foundation. Logistics service providers, logistics-related services and suppliers for IT and digitization complete the spectrum. The focus will be on intermodal links with Europe and Asia as well as the North-South axis from Canada to Latin America. The exhibition expects more than 5,000 participants. Partner organizations including Americas Alliance, Neutral Air Partner or Miami-Dade Beacon Council bring forwarders and shippers from the region and Central America to the show. A high-profile conference program is being planned.
As the world's largest hub for air cargo between North and South America, transport logistic Americas & air cargo forum are a homecoming for Miami International Airport (MIA). The hub imports fish, flowers, fruits and vegetables and exports pharmaceutical, engineering, automotive and ICT products. Like exhibitor Incheon International (ICN) of South Korea, MIA ranks among the top 10 cargo airports worldwide. Together with fourteen other airports in the U.S., Singapore, Canada and Europe to date, they are showcasing air cargo solutions. The strong north-south axis is equally evident in the airlines. Across the Americas, exhibitors from Canada to Brazil are on hand, including AerCaribe and Latam. Ethiad is one of the air cargo brands presenting cargo flight networks via Asia, Africa and Europe. From Germany, Eurocargo and Munich Airport have already booked their space.
“transport logistic Americas is a perfect platform for us to engage with potential clients and network with carrier partners throughout the Americas. With our regional headquarter in Miami we intensify and establish contacts for stable supply chains via the shortest routes across all modes of transportation. Participating in this trade fair is a great opportunity to showcase our world-class logistics services and our strong presence in the Americas,” explains Jörn Schmersahl, CEO of Rhenus Air & Ocean Americas. Many of the exhibiting logistics companies and service providers for logistics-related services, IT and equipment, as well as the trade fair visitors, come from Florida and the neighboring Central American countries. The firmly booked space is occupied in part by joint stands for international digital startups, pavilions for companies from Germany, Italy as well as various associations. "Stable supply chains are more important than ever. Miami is exactly the right place as a hub between North and South. From global players to startups, we see a lot of potential for companies from Central and South America. In the long term, the fair will occupy an important place in the global event landscape. We are confident that participating at the air cargo forum Miami and transport logistic Americas, will drive direct value to our members and worldwide customer base," says Christos Spyrou, CEO & Founder of Neutral Air Partner, a global network of leading air cargo architects and aviation specialists.
