More reasons to get vaccinated with more industry events and conferences coming our way as doors open for the 11th Asian Logistics, Maritime and Aviation Conference (ALMAC) happening on 2 and 3 November at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Jointly organised by the Hong Kong government and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council or HKTDC, the event will be held in a ‘hybrid’ format’ for the first time under the theme “RESILIENCE, AGILITY, SUSTAINABILITY: Reshaping the Global Supply Chain.”
ALMAC brings together participants from maritime, air freight, logistics and supply chain management industries as well as shippers to get market insights, exchange market intelligence and explore business opportunities.
More than 60 industry experts will speak in person or virtually over the two days of the conference, which is expected to attract over 10,000 industry participants from over 50 countries and regions.
Industry representatives can take part in the event at the main venue in Hong Kong or satellite venues in Beijing, Guangzhou, Chengdu and Chongqing, with an air cargo forum happening immediately after the plenary session on day 1 of the 2-day conference.
Part 1 of the Air Freight Forum will explore ways on how companies can capitalise on the emerging opportunities in the Greater Bay Area, whilst part 2 will shed more light on digitalisation and the future for smart air cargo.
“This year’s ALMAC will focus on the prospects for global recovery, examining issues such as geopolitical tensions, regional collaboration and new opportunities under China’s 14th Five-Year Plan,” said Patrick Lau, HKTDC deputy executive director.
It will also highlight the new trade order and evolving intermodal networks in the Asia-Pacific region, e-commerce trends, the post-pandemic evolution of the retail industry, along with the development of a sustainable supply chain and digital transformation trends beyond 2021.
The conference continues to connect the global industry through a powerful online platform without boundaries and will give participants a deeper understanding of the current industry situation and help them capture new opportunities.
These issues will impact the logistics industry as well as shippers. I would encourage all shippers, including traders, exporters and manufacturers, to join the conference to understand the issues and get insights on how to deal with them,” Lau added.
