The event will kick off with a cultural tour followed by an evening reception for attendees. A robust conference program has been developed and is aimed at not only supporting the development of Kazakhstan as an air cargo hub – “the Silk Road in the Sky” but aims to cover topics that the industry faces globally. Key topics that will be discussed include a new vision for economic prosperity, industry regulatory framework and multi-modal logistics and the TransCaspian corridor; cargo industry overview, building air cargo hubs, air cargo trends, eCommerce, sustainability and SAF  Kazakh, English and Russian translation services will be provided to ensure all participants can participate fully at the event.


The TIACA Event – Central Asia will be held at the Hilton Astana, steps from Mega Silk Way shopping and dining area and five kilometres from Bayterek Tower, offering panoramic views of Astana. Our hosts have arranged a special discounted rate of USD 130 for the attendees during their stay. In addition, our host has graciously invited all attendees to learn more about the region through complimentary pre-event tours of Astana city and Nur Alem, the Future Energy Museum.

“The TIACA Event – Central Asia aligns with many key points in the organization’s mission by supporting the birth of an air cargo hub within Central Asia. The conference program ensures we are delivering a first class experience for attendees while showcasing the region and underlining the importance that air cargo has within the global framework. We look forward to drawing the industry to Astana.”  Steven Polmans, TIACA Chair

“We are excited to welcome delegates to Astana for a full conference program, networking, and, of course, the culture. We look forward to seeing you soon,” says Catalin Radu, Director General of the Aviation Administration of Kazakhstan.

“We are excited about the conference program that includes so many important topics on both regional and global levels. TIACA conferences have consistently brought a refreshing breath to the conference circuit by ensuring the sessions are lively, relative to the audience and allow experts to share their knowledge,” adds Glyn Hughes, TIACA Director General
