Demand from international exhibitors exceeds expectations

Singapore freight forwarders – Star Concord

From 1st-3rd November 2023, the key players in the airfreight, transport and logistics sector will meet for the first time at transport logistic Southeast Asia and air cargo Southeast Asia. They are looking forward to establish, maintain or expand contacts with the Southeast Asian market on the approximately 10,000 sqm of exhibition space at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore. With 135 exhibitors from 23 countries, the exhibition space is sold out. The demand clearly shows that the Southeast Asian market is becoming increasingly important for international companies.

Due to the challenges of the past years, many companies are currently using a China+1 strategy to expand their supplier network and relocate production or branches to new locations with attractive conditions. Singapore and other Southeast Asian countries offer a good opportunity to diversify and increase the resilience of supply chains. Singapore is already an important hub for trade to and from Asia, so many of the world’s logistics service providers are already based there or are increasingly looking for local cooperation partners.

Asia Pacific is also one of the most important markets in the air cargo sector. From a strategic point of view, the timing of air cargo Southeast Asia is therefore perfect for initiating important business deals and establishing contacts in this growth market. Numerous global and regional players in the industry such as Boeing, Emirates SkyCargo, Singapore Airlines, United Cargo, Jettainer, Garuda Indonesia, MAS Kargo, Vietjet Cargo and ACL Airshop have signed up.

“Southeast Asia is a dynamic hub for trade and commerce. The transport logistic Southeast Asia gives visitors access to a wide range of market opportunities. The show provides the platform to connect with the right people from the region and unlock growth potential. We look forward to a wide-ranging conference program focusing on digitalisation, resilience, and sustainability that will discuss the current and upcoming issues in the logistics industry with a broad audience,” said Michael Wilton, CEO & Managing Director of MMI Asia.
