air cargo Africa, the sector’s leading industry exhibition and conference, comes to Johannesburg, South African from 21-23 February. Having been rescheduled, as it was originally due to the Covid pandemic, it is back again to celebrate domestic innovations and global partnerships in Africa’s vibrant cargo community.
That disruption, while unfortunate, allowed the industry to focus on opportunities to adapt to changing environments, innovating to meet the new normal and offering interest insights and enthusiasm that will drive the future of the air cargo industry in Africa and beyond.
One of the most anticipated trade shows for the global industry, air cargo Africa has cemented its leadership position over the past few years by attracting some of the most influential companies and professionals to the show.
