The Canadian International Freight Forwarders’ Association (CIFFA) will partner with TIACA and Multimodal Americas at the Air Cargo Forum (ACF) in Toronto in October 2018.
The announcement comes as Vladimir Zubkov formally takes the helm as TIACA’s new Secretary General, replacing Doug Brittin, who retired at the end of last year.
CIFFA, which celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2018, will take part in the exhibition and host a conference complimenting the seminars and workshops organised by TIACA and Multimodal Americas.
“TIACA’s Air Cargo Forum provides a platform for all sectors of the industry to network, do business, and learn from the experts,” said Zubkov.
“Our partnership with CIFFA and Multimodal Americas strengthens the event, and we will be working together in the months to come to put together a compelling program.
“We are looking forward to the many opportunities this collaboration will deliver for all of our members and for the industry at large.”
Ruth Snowden of CIFFA, Robert Jervis, and Vladimir Zubkov met in Miami this week to formalise the partnership.
“Our mandate is to deliver value to membership”, said Ruth Snowden, Executive Director, CIFFA.
“With this global event and CIFFA’s conference focus on innovation and inspiration, everyone who attends will come away enriched.”
Established in 1948, CIFFA represents some 260 international freight forwarding firms across Canada.
Clarion Events, owners of both the Multimodal UK Exhibition, and the Supply Chain and Logistics Summits, will launch its new Multimodal Americas show alongside the 2018 ACF.
The exhibition will showcase leading logistics and transport companies over a three-day event, which will also include a series of seminars and practical workshops.
“We are excited to be extending the reach of the Multimodal franchise and delighted to be working both with TIACA and CIFFA,” said Robert Jervis, Logistics Portfolio Director, Clarion Events.
TIACA’s last ACF took place in Paris, France, in October 2016, and was attended by more than 3,000 delegates visiting over 300 exhibitors from leading companies including Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Incheon International Airport, and Air Charter Service.
