TIACA reports on successful regional event in LatAm

The event that ran from 06-08MAR24 in Sao Paolo, Brazil, was the association’s fourth regional event, the first of the year, and the first to be held in Latin America. 130 delegates attended the VIP event that piggy-backed onto the Intermodal 2024, and hailed it a success since it did what it was planned to do: bring together the local air cargo community and international delegates to discuss both issues affecting the air cargo market and opportunities to expand business within Latin America. On the agenda were topics such as: e-commerce, pharma, perishables, freighter capacity, workforce challenges, digital innovation, and air cargo outlook. “TIACA’s regional events are designed to identify specific issues on a regional level that TIACA can incorporate into our overall work on behalf of the industry. Each regional event will develop an action plan that will be incorporated into TIACA’s strategic objectives and activities,” the release explained. Given that the final day of the event coincided with International Women’s Day, a special focus was directed at promoting a more inclusive and diverse workforce within the industry, and in particular how to attract more young women to consider a career in air cargo and aviation.

By collaborating with our partners within Latin America, such as the Craft Group, ALTA and ALACAT, we were able to provide attendees a unique VIP experience.”

Glyn Hughes, Director General, TIACA, commented: “This event, in particular, showed how strong an influence Latin America has within air cargo and the need to continue to work with our colleagues in Latin America as the industry in this region continues its rapid growth.”
