Budapest Airport will host The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA)’s Executive Summit and Annual General Meeting from 20 to 22 November 2019.
Working with EVA International Media to organise the summit, it will bring together decision makers from across the global for a series of panel discussions, keynote speeches and round table debates.
The airport will host an opening ceremony for its freight centre, BUD Cargo City, inviting delegates, customers and suppliers to tour the facility, followed by a Gala Dinner at the Historic Terminal One building, where the TIACA Hall of Fame winner will be announced.
Sebastiaan Scholte, CEO of Jan de Rijk and TIACA chairman says: “We are pleased to be visiting Budapest at such an exciting time for the airport and are looking forward to providing a platform for the industry to look for ways to better collaborate.”
BUD Cargo City is part of the €160 million BUD:2020 Development Programme at the airport, which services 45 airlines and handled 146,113 tonnes of cargo in 2018.
Jost Lammers, CEO of Budapest Airport says: “We as the host are excited and extremely proud to announce that Budapest Airport is able to bring the 2019 TIACA Executive Summit to the city of Budapest, being selected after competing with other top locations worldwide and following previous prominent locations of TIACA events in Toronto, Miami, and Paris.”
René Droese, executive director property and cargo at Budapest Airport says: “The summit will represent a beginning of a new chapter for our partners and for Budapest in many respects. We will organise our BUD Cargo City opening event as part of the executive summit.”
