New Feature at 2017 Show to Include Conference

Cargo Zone, one of the new features at the Dubai Airshow 2017, announced its conference agenda ahead of the event on 13 November 2017. The introduction of the Cargo Zone at the Dubai Airshow comes at a time when Al Maktoum International Airport now hosts the world’s largest cargo operations, which will further boost Dubai’s goal to transform into a key regional hub with a capacity to handle more than 12 million tones of cargo annually.

Taking place at DWC, Dubai Airshow Site within the Dubai Airshow 2017, Cargo Zone at Dubai Airshow will gather industry experts from airlines, airport authorities, regulatory bodies, freight forwarders and e-commerce businesses companies to discuss where the Dubai air cargo industry is going and how innovation can be taken further to enhance development. The Cargo Zone at the Dubai Airshow will host a one day conference alongside a dedicated exhibition on the show floor.

With keynote presentations from both Nabil Sultan, Divisional Senior Vice President, Emirates Skycargo and Glyn Hughes, Global Head of Cargo, IATA; the conference will look at the future of the Dubai cargo industry and examine the international perspective before focusing on specific areas of opportunity and challenges to the industry. These include ‘Air Cargo Safety and Security’, looking at cyber security and its impact on cargo operations, cargo compliance and dangerous goods- regulations, capabilities and training; ‘the vision of E-commerce, facilitation and regulation’; and ‘How to Develop An Effective Aerospace Logistics Hub’, addressing the needs of OEMs, MROs and service providers, improving the speed and efficiency of air cargo handling systems and facilities and managing effective supply chain and inbound logistics to aircraft OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.

“The UAE is continuing to invest in airline cargo and is already an important location globally,” said Timothy Hawes, Portfolio Director at organisers Tarsus F&E LLC Middle East. He continued, “With the new facilities at Al Maktoum International, this strategically located hub now opens even more doors for business in Europe, Africa and Asia.”

The Cargo Zone will feature key industry exhibitors in a dedicated pavilion within the Dubai Airshow including Roamworks, Turkish Cargo, RSA Logistics and National Air Cargo, among others. In addition to attending the conference, delegates at the Cargo Conference will be able to access the Dubai Airshow for the full five days.
