The conference agenda will see key decision-makers from across the industry discuss the future of air cargo, gender diversity, e-commerce, infrastructure, digital transformation and a host of other important areas of business.

Speakers from across the globe will include IATA’s head of e-commerce and cargo operations, Brendan Sullivan; McKinsey & Company partner, Ludwig Hausmann; Swissport International’s head of global operations, Hendrik Leyssens; Unilode Aviation Solutions CEO, Benoît Dumont; and Emirates SkyCargo senior vice president of cargo operations, Henrik Ambak.

Over the three days, there will also be ample time for networking at a welcoming reception, during coffee breaks and at a networking dinner, giving delegates the opportunity to develop and build relationships and do business.
