Robert Schönberger, Head of transport logistic exhibitions at Messe München, expects an exponential increase in booking numbers from now on: “The list of participants is very international so far. The level is two-thirds C-level and upper management. About three weeks before the start of the fair, we are more than satisfied with the quality and quantity of pre-registrations. As of now, we are expecting registrations mainly from the Florida and Central America business region.”
The conference program, with 90 speakers and 22 sessions, ranges from C-level eagle perspectives to operational aspects. The focus is on cross-modal issues along the entire supply chain. A CEO Roundtable with Tim Strauss (Amerijet International), Gabriel Oliva (Avianca Cargo) Tobias König (CEO, Rhenus Air & Ocean), Audrone Keinyte (Bluebird Nordic) and Adrien Thominet, (CEO, ECS Group) will kick things off on Tuesday.
The program will conclude on Thursday with a career day for professionals and young professionals.
TIACA Chairman Steven Polmans: “Our conference program is leading the way on topics such as digitalization, sustainability and innovation. It shows the future of the logistics industry. More and more, integrative supply chain solutions are replacing silo thinking at the mode level. This opens up opportunities for the industry and is exciting for specialists and young professionals.”
