TIACA announces launch of Regional Symposiums


The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) announced the launch of the Regional Symposium series. The series is aimed at engaging and bringing the air cargo community together to discuss issues that we are facing at a regional level. The kick-off event will be held in Amsterdam and will be hosted by Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

The Regional Symposiums are designed to identify specific issues on a regional level that TIACA can incorporate into our overall work on behalf of the industry. The program will include important discussions on sustainability, market challenges, people issues and the economic outlook.  Digitalization, safety and security issues will also feature highly on the programme.  Each Symposium will develop a Regional Action plan that will be incorporated into TIACA strategic objectives and activities. The price point (or attendance fees) is set low to encourage both members and non-members to join so that we can get a full understanding of the local needs for air cargo.

“TIACA is committed to being connected to our membership and by organising the Regional Symposiums, we are able to interact more intimately with our members in each region and discuss what issues they face on a day-to-day basis. TIACA is greatly appreciative for the support of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol for inviting us to Amsterdam to launch the inaugural event. We look forward to excellent discussions and outcomes,” said Steven Polmans, TIACA chairman.

The first Regional Symposium will be held in Amsterdam, June 28 in Amsterdam City Centre. The event will include one-day interactive conference sessions, an evening reception and a tour of the airport is being planned for the 29.

“We are very honoured to host the first TIACA Regional Event. As Europe’s preferred Cargo Hub, we are more than delighted to welcome the community to Amsterdam for the kick-off event. It will be an interesting event full of new insights. We hope to see and meet many Air Cargo professionals,” says Roos Bakker, director business
