Due to the existing travel restrictions and the currently unclear COVID-19 situation, the World Trade Center Miami (WTCM), organiser, has decided to postpone Air Cargo Americas/Supply Chain Americas by a few months to March 8-10, 2022.
One of the main grounds for this decision is the large share of international exhibitors and visitors that form an important part of our show, are currently limited, restricted, or unable to travel. Holding Air Cargo Americas/Supply Chain Americas in October 2021 would make it impossible for the Show and Conference to live up to the standards set by the WTCM for ourselves and the expectations of our sponsors, exhibitors, and visitors.
With the new date, WTCM customers are being offered planning certainty in a timely manner. This postponement will create the basis for a successful in-person international show and conference and is in following with the wishes of exhibitors, sponsors, and visitors.
The World Trade Center Miami is working out details of postponing the planned show and conference in consultation with its Executive Committee and the Steering Committee of the Show and Conference. A clear majority of present sponsors and partners also support the date change.
“The WTCM prides itself in organising a successful Air Cargo Americas/Supply Chain Americas Show and Conference. We place greater value in the health, safety and well-being of our guests and look forward to celebrating in Miami in March 2022 with our industry partners” said Ivan Barrios, president & CEO of the WTCM.
“We support the postponement to March 2022 and are already looking forward being able to being able to meet again in person,” said Chris Mangos, director of marketing for Miami International Airport (MIA) & Chairman of the 2021 Air Cargo Americas/Supply Chain Americas Show and Conference. Miami International Airport is also host of the Air Cargo Americas/Supply Chain Americas Show and Conference.
“We are grateful for the support of our sponsors and industry partners and their commitment in support of our decision to postpone the Show and Conference,” said Christine Richard, sr. director of marketing for Amerijet International Airlines & co-chair of the 2021 Air Cargo Americas/Supply Chain Americas Show and Conference.
