The Project Cargo Conference, which takes place on November 3rd 2023, will run alongside the transport logistic & air cargo (tlac) Southeast Asia exhibition in Singapore and is aimed at industry stakeholders in the region.

“This is an exciting new initiative,” said Annie Roberts, Divisional Director at HLPFI, “and we are delighted to be working with the team from MMI Asia to stage this event. The Southeast Asia region is important for the heavy lift community, and we see increased project activity in the market. We have some great topics to discuss.”

Michael Wilton, CEO and Managing Director of MMI Asia, added: “Singapore is the gateway to the greater Southeast Asia region and the most dynamic and exciting hotspot for transport and logistics right now. Many global companies are already active here, and many more want to come to reap the rewards of the attractive conditions.

“HLPFI is a specialist in its field, and we believe the conference content will offer delegates some great insights and information on all matters related to project cargo.”
