INO Summit cancelled

The INO Summit – a joint conference that brings together the Freight Forwarders Family Worldwide Agents Network (3F), Freight Midpoint International Forwarders Network (FM) and Overseas Project Cargo Association (OPCA) – has been cancelled.

As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, the three-day event, which was due to take place on June 19-21 this year in Istanbul, will now take place in 2021.

In a statement on the OPCA’s website, the network said: "We had been preparing for this event for a long time to bring our members together in a family atmosphere and so it saddens us to a great extent to cancel it… the coronavirus (Covid-19) is still spreading over the world and it has already affected our members’ travel plans due to the cancelled events in the first quarter of the year."
