CNS Partnership Conference 2024 Highlights




"In an age where everything is going virtual, nothing beats the personal touch. So, we come here to meet with our partners, connect with them and have fun ."
Patrizia Harmeier, Vice President of Sales, Swissport  

"The key takeaway is that we need to work on bringing young people into this industry. Be able to bring young talent, retain it and upskill the knowledge we already have because people are the ones making the difference in cargo ."
Alicia Lines, CNS President and Head of Cargo, The Americas  

"If you want to showcase your services you can do that, you can have private meetings, you can exhibit here at the show and it’s been very successful for me."
Keith Davis, CEO, Sterling Transportation

Miami, USA

Miami is most famous for its amazing weather and beaches. Its tropical climate helps to make Miami one of America’s great winter resorts, and tourism is a major component of the city’s economy. The city is also a centre of international banking and finance, business services, manufacturing (including apparel, medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, printing, and metal products) and international commerce.
