FACE UP! 2020

The IATA air cargo career competition

FACE-UP! is a competition for recent graduates to present their thesis at the World Cargo Symposium (WCS). To be eligible, graduates must have a thesis topic about air transport logistics (e.g. air cargo, supply chain management, mobility, IT solutions, etc.). 

The FACE-UP finalists will present to over 1,200 top-level industry professionals at the 2020 edition of WCS. Besides being a unique networking opportunity, the event will also provide a valuable chance to gain knowledge and build a better understanding of all elements across the air cargo supply chain.

"The idea is to bring fresh energy into the air cargo industry by offering opportunities that will assist the professional development of talented graduates with a passion for the industry. Air cargo is growing at an impressive rate and we want young people to be a part of unlocking and benefitting from this potential," says Glyn Hughes, IATA's Global Head of Cargo.

  • Stay tunned for the launch of the 2020 edition of FACE UP! in summer 2019.
