Hong Kong to host WCA Conference Week
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.
