Cargo Talk - - Contents -

The world’s leading freight for­ward­ing event has moved to a new venue in Hong Kong, fol­low­ing the post­pone­ment of the con­fer­ence that was sched­uled to take place in Bangkok in March. WCA Con­fer­ence Week, com­pris­ing the ‘16th WCA First Con­fer­ence’, the ‘6th WCA World­wide Con­fer­ence’ and the ‘2nd WCA Re­lo­ca­tions Con­fer­ence’, will now take place from May 11-18, 2014, at Asia-World Expo, ad­ja­cent to Hong Kong In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

Over 2,500 lo­gis­tics ex­ec­u­tives had con­firmed their par­tic­i­pa­tion at the orig­i­nal event and over 160 meet­ing booths were booked. “The WCA staff has worked tire­lessly to en­sure the switch has been com­pleted smoothly and that, if any­thing, the event will be even bet­ter than be­fore. We have en­sured that no par­tic­i­pant will be out of pocket on their travel ar­range­ments due to the switch and we look for­ward to host­ing over 70,000 in­di­vid­ual meet­ings that will see the in­de­pen­dent freight for­ward­ing sec­tor gen­er­ate mil­lions of dol­lars in new busi­ness,” as­serted David Yokeum, Pres­i­dent, WCA.
