JFK Air Cargo Expo 2018

May 17, 2018 | 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

JFK Air Cargo EXPO 2018 was postponed due to the impending severe weather forecasted for the entire NYC area on the original date. The JFK Air Cargo Association truly appreciates your support of, and commitment to, this annual event, whether those that are coming in from local and regional areas, or those that are coming in from greater distances or faraway places. In either case, we had to make some quick, tough decisions and the safety and well-being of our attendees comes first. We hope that you understand. More info at www.jfkaircargo.net

Cargo Linking & Forward Thinking

The JFK Air Cargo Association is pleased to announce JFK Air Cargo EXPO 2018. Preparations are well underway for another record-breaking annual EXPO with attendance levels expected at well over 300 attendees. This year’s event will be held on Thursday, March 22, 2018 at Russo’s on the Bay in nearby Howard Beach, Queens, New York.

The air cargo industry continues to face unique and unprecedented challenges, whether as a whole or by each individual business segment. This include Airlines, Freight Forwarders, Customs Brokers, Truckers, Ground Handling Agents, General Sales Agents, Security Companies, Airports, and other integral business segments. Whether locally or industry-wide, the John F. Kennedy International Airport air cargo community continues to stand up to these challenges by taking a leadership role through its expertise of the air cargo business and its dynamics, while also understanding and anticipating the key issues that are looming. Aptly, this year’s theme is “JFK EXPO 2018: Insight, Foresight, and Spotlight” and you can be assured that this year’s event will be both highly productive and exceptional.

  • Keynote Speaker: Mr Warren Jones, Director of The International Air Cargo Association
  • Panel Moderator: Mr Brandon Fried, Executive Director of the Airforwarders Association

Although the full EXPO Agenda will be announced shortly, the JFK Air Cargo Association is now taking reservations for the EXPO Exhibition portion, which features scores of exhibitors from all segments of the industry displaying their products and services. Being an EXPO exhibitor provides direct face-to-face interaction and networking with airline, freight forwarder, and other air cargo industry key decision-makers in a dedicated and focused environment.
Please note that this sells out very quickly. There are also EXPO Sponsorship opportunities
