The JFK Air Cargo Association is pleased to announce JFK Air Cargo EXPO 2024. Preparations are underway for another record-breaking EXPO, with nearly 400 attendees expected. This year’s event will be held on Thursday, March 21, 2024, at the Russo’s on the Bay in nearby Howard Beach, Queens, New York.

The air cargo industry continues to evolve in extraordinary and, in many times, unpredictable ways. E-commerce growth, specialized markets, regulatory impacts, and erratic peak season trends are all key topics to focus on and manage in 2024. However, lowering costs while increasing speed and efficiencies and maximizing capacity on airplanes, trucks, or warehouses remain major challenges. The common denominator for navigating through all of this continues to point to technology and the power of the air cargo industry’s workforce. Airlines, forwarders and brokers, ground handlers, truckers, airports, and associated air cargo industry business segments increasingly rely on the convergence of technology to enhance their businesses. The hope is that the industry vibrantly moves forward, grows, and exhibits signs of some stability. The role and skills of people working in the industry are paramount to its success. The JFK Air Cargo Association continues to take a leadership role in identifying and addressing pertinent industry issues and providing a forum for developing viable solutions that can lead us to the bright side.

The agenda and speakers have been finalized for this year’s JFK Air Cargo EXPO 2024 event being held on Thursday, March 21, 2024 at the Russo’s on the Bay in nearby Howard Beach, Queens, New York.

The theme of this year’s EXPO is “JFK EXPO 2024: Air Cargo Industry Convergence and Resurgence” and is sure to attract many leading industry professionals from both near and far. Last year’s EXPO attracted over 300 attendees and EXPO 2024 is on course to attract even greater numbers. We are very excited to have New York Assemblyman Mr. Clive Vanel as EXPO Luncheon Keynote Speaker. Assemblyman Vanel serves as the Chair of the Subcommittee on Internet and New Technology and Chairs the Committee on Oversight, Analysis, and Investigation.

He has sponsored numerous landmark bills and understands the political, social, economic, and cultural implications of Emerging Technologies and Artificial Intelligence, while also working with marginalized communities to close the digital divide.

The EXPO begins with Opening Remarks from Salvatore Ingrassia, Port Director JFK Airport, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, followed by the EXPO Panel Session entitled:

“Linking the Power of People & Technology”.

Brandon Fried, Executive Director of the Airforwarders Association will moderate a panel of industry experts which includes Brennan O’Dowd, CEO of 7L Freight, a freightos company; Andrew Renna, JFK Assistant Port Director, Cargo Operations; Alex Sakach, Vice President, Operational Excellence North America for WFS; Michael White President Trade Network consultants and Senior Advisor to the CEO of PayCargo; and Michelle Williams, Managing Director Strategy and Business Services for Southwest Airlines.

Being an EXPO exhibitor provides direct face-to-face interaction and networking with airlines, freight forwarders, and other key decision-makers in the air cargo industry in a dedicated and focused environment.

Please note that EXPO Sponsorship starts at $100 and up.

March 21, 2024, is approaching, so please register soon, as last-minute registrations may not be accommodated.
