TIACA and Messe München sign Memorandum of Understanding

Toronto, Canada, Tuesday 16th October 2018 – The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) and Messe München have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will see the two organizations work closely together on TIACA’s Air Cargo Forum and Exhibition.

Under the agreement, Messe München will undertake the organisation of the Air Cargo Forum, while TIACA remains in control of the content of the conference.

TIACA will also be a strategic partner at Messe München’s “transport logistic” events in Munich, Germany, Shanghai, China, and Istanbul, Turkey.

The next ACF will take place in Miami, Florida, USA, where TIACA is headquartered. The idea is to organise the event in a fixed location every two years and with the support and knowledge of Messe München, to transform it into a real logistical intermodal event.

TIACA will retain editorial control of all content for the conference programs of the ACF and will continue to organise the Executive Summits at different corners in the world to reflect the organisation’s global status.

TIACA and Messe München will jointly promote all of the events.




The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) represents, supports, informs, and connects every element of the global air freight supply chain.

TIACA lobbies governments and regulators, provides valuable networking opportunities, organizes and hosts leading industry events, and gives guidance, advice, and specialist career development training for members.

We champion every size of business and help shape the policy which affects all our members, providing a unifying voice for the industry, working for global standards, and raising the profile of air cargo.

TIACA is a not-for-profit trade association representing aircraft manufacturers, airports, all-cargo airlines, combination carriers, consultants, Customs brokers, educational institutions, equipment manufacturers, general sales agents, ground handlers, freight forwarders, integrators, IT systems providers, logistics companies, road carriers, shippers and screening technology developers.

TIACA’s Air Cargo Forum is a biennial event bringing together thousands of airfreight decision makers and supply chain operators from across the globe.

The 2018 event takes place this week in Toronto, Canada from 16th to 18th October and is co-located with the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA) 70th anniversary conference.
