Under 30? TIACA needs you!


The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) announced that to encourage NextGen participation at next month’s Regional Symposium in Amsterdam, they will provide a complimentary registration for a guest under 30 for every paid registration. “The objective of this initiative is to encourage the industry to put one of the eight key objectives of TIACA’s Sustainability Roadmap – Attract, Retain and Develop employees into action and offer their younger colleagues the opportunity to attend, network and learn from industry leaders.” Glyn Hughes, TIACA director general The Regional Symposium scheduled for June 28 in Amsterdam, Netherlands aims to bring a lively dialogue that will address issues and solutions at the regional level. The event is expected to draw participants from the entire industry from all over Europe. “As part of our own personal Sustainability Journey, we need to ensure we follow our own Roadmap, and this is just one of the steps we are taking. The importance of attracting, retaining and developing the next generation of industry leaders falls on all of us. As part of our mission, we must do our part and show those just entering our industry not only how important air cargo is but where their career path could lead. By having them join the Regional Symposium, we will be giving them a glimpse into the industry we are so passionate about,” Steven Polmans, Chair The event programme will focus on the critical issues being faced within the region and the outcome will feature in the TIACA regional action plan. Air cargo is a global industry yet each region has a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities that exist and TIACA’s regional strategy will result in a series of regional symposiums.
