Posted 15 February 2017 · Add Comment

SAA Cargo will continue its partnership with the STAT Media Group, organisers of the Air Cargo Africa Conference and Exhibition. The Conference takes place at Emperor's Palace in Kempton Park from 21to 23 February 2017.

“As a national carrier we are proud to be associated with this prestigious event where all air cargo industry leaders converge to deliberate on the future of airfreight in Africa.  We also look forward to making a contribution to deliberations focusing on the continent’s economic growth prospects,” said Tleli Makhetha, SAA Cargo’s general manager.

Air Cargo Africa is being hosted in South Africa for the third time due to positive feedback from the delegates who attended previous events. The 2015 conference and exhibition attracted 527 global industry decision-makers as registered delegates and attracted impressive 2 915 exhibition visitors from across Africa and other continents. The numbers are expected to be much higher as the event continues to grow in stature.

The three-day event will be attended by key players from the global cargo community, including airlines, shippers, freight forwarders, manufacturers, airports, and charter providers.

This international event provides delegates with an opportunity to network. The conference gives delegates an opportunity to engage in vibrant discussions focusing on trade opportunities in Africa and how these can contribute to economic growth.
