WCA prepares for 2013 Family Week

February 1 - Over 2,500 independent freight forwarders will gather in Bangkok, Thailand from March 3-10 2013 at what the organisers say will be the world's largest logistics networking event - WCA Family Week.

In 2012, a total of 2,080 delegates registered and attended the conference, and according to WCA Family president David Yokeum the demand for the 2013 event has broken all previous records: "Demand for delegate places is around 30 per cent higher than in 2012 and this alone demonstrates the tremendous value and return on investment for each company in attendance."

Freight forwarders from 185 countries have confirmed their attendance alongside selected vendor carriers, charter brokers, IT providers and the industry media. The conference will also see the WCA Family deliver a major new announcement to its members, as the network celebrates its 15-year anniversary.
