AirCargo Conference opens registration for 2020 event


AirCargo 2020 to be held January 26-28 at the Omni Nashville Hotel

Washington, D.C., USA, Tuesday 9th July 2019: The Airforwarders Association (AfA), the Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA) and the Air Expedited Motor Carriers Association (AEMCA) announce the opening of online registration for the annual AirCargo Conference to be held January 26 – 28, 2020, at the Omni Nashville Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Everything Counts” and coming off one of the most well-attended AirCargo events in Las Vegas this year, the conference is poised to grow even more next year.

In 2020, AirCargo is introducing a two-track curriculum for attendees. One track is focused on topics that corporate leadership deals with in both the day-to-day management and the vision planning of operating a business. The second parallel track is for compliance professionals and operations staff who are interacting daily with customers, vendors and regulatory agencies.

“This is the first year in AirCargo’s history we have made a concerted effort to develop a rigorous, full set of parallel sessions targeted at attendees who our surveys have demonstrated come from these two primary audiences,” says Brandon Fried, Executive Director of the AfA.

Fiona Morgan, Executive Director of the AEMCA and the Conference’s coordinator offers, “This year’s conference is going to take advantage of our location in Nashville. Our logo is a nod to the heritage of Music City, USA. We are planning our annual golf event at Top Golf to ensure a warm and new challenge on our opening day.”

“Programming this year will begin with our annual Women’s Networking Event. Drawing increasingly larger crowds every year, we are featuring a panel discussion for 2020 that will bring even more knowledge and experience for our attendees,” Morgan continued.

Members of the three hosting associations have preferential pricing for conference attendance and exhibition booth rates, with early bird rates available well into early January, 2020.
