The 2018 Cargo Events will take place in Bangkok, an exciting and vibrant city. It is Thailand`s administrative, economic, and cultural center, as well as a major commercial and transportation hub for South-east Asia. Known for ornate shrines, rich history, vibrant street life and sumptuous food. It is a city that is a true touristic paradise, provided by the growing number of travelers coming each year.
Bangkok is a tropical metropolis that is also one of the most traveler-friendly cities in Asia. The high relative humidity and warm temperature favor the growth of tropical plants. Bougainvillea and frangipani bloom practically all over the city. Thai cuisine is justifiably famous, varied, and affordable. Bangkok for many represents the quintessential Asian capital. Saffron-robed monks, garish neon signs, graceful Thai architecture, spicy dishes, colorful markets, traffic jams and the tropical climate come together in a happy coincidence. It is difficult to leave with lukewarm impressions of the city.
IATA believes that diversity of culture, gender, age, orientation and experience boosts the success of the aviation industry. We actively encourage aviation professionals with diverse profiles to contribute to our events as speakers, panelists, facilitators, or in any other way.
