AIR CARGO AFRICA 2017 is the mega event set for 21-23 February at Casino Convention Resort, Emperors Palace in City of Ekurhuleni engaging the global air cargo community to explore and strengthen networking corridors with the African Continent. In its past three editions, the show has seen major participation from world players so also key players from the African airfreight community. Africa is at the apex for being increasingly known as an emerging market and many that have been in the business for years have recognized this event as a platform for effective networking, turning this market into an exciting and absorbing frontier for new opportunities.

Tambo International airport which is envisioned to be built into an aerotropolis that will define the future of aviation for Africa. Executive Mayor City of Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality, Clr.MondliGungubele inaugurated the event.
