Blockchain and Big Data to lead seminar debates at TIACA’S 2018 Air Cargo Forum

The blurring line between logistics and technology services, and the transformational power of Blockchain and Big Data will take centre stage at TIACA’s 2018 Air Cargo Forum (ACF) in Toronto, Canada from October 16 – 18.

Logistics leaders and top business experts, including Dragon’s Den Canada host and OMX founder Nicole Verkindt, will take to the stage for a series of lively discussions and debates during the three-day event at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Registration is now open and exhibitors that have signed up for TIACA’s 29th international ACF include Boeing, John F. Kennedy International airport, Incheon International Airport Corporation, Halifax Partnership, Group ADP, DSV, the Canadian National Railway, and Chapman Freeborn.

“The air cargo industry is undergoing a transformation with a wave of new technology and disruptive innovation, and now more than ever it is crucial that we collaborate as well as stay informed with the latest developments,” says TIACA secretary general Vladimir Zubkov.

“Our ACF will bring together stakeholders from across the entire global supply chain, making it the perfect platform for networking and new business opportunities, and a chance to learn from logistics experts from across the spectrum.”

More than 4,000 delegates are expected to attend the exhibition and TIACA has teamed up with a number of associations and organisations in order to boost attendance to the biennial show.

For the first time, the show will be co-located with the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA) and the new Multimodal Americas show, bringing together leading logistics companies from across the entire logistics supply chain.

The 2018 ACF workshop and seminar series includes debates exploring digital transformation in the airfreight industry, as well as air cargo’s value proposition, and how industry can work proactively with legislators to improve security.
