IELA Operations Summit: High Value for Operations Manager


IELA 2nd Operations Summit, the event for operational staff, will take place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from February 1st to 3rd 2018.

Borned from IELA’s initiative “Giving back benefits to our members", the Operations Summit is a bienal platform for training and social activities for operational staff. It includes a structured networking during two afternoon sessions as well as educational seminars and presentations of renowned guest speakers of the Industry. It is a three-day conference for employees to learn about the needs of organisers and airline operators.


For this second edition, two special guest speakers from the industry will be delivering knowledge and insight: Konstantin Stathopoulos, Head of Sales & Handling South China, Hong Kong & Taiwan at Lufthansa Cargo AG, and Ian Hume, Manager Traffic and Logistics at Messe Düsseldorf. IELA experts will deliver volunteer work offering lecturers focused on the day-to-day business of exhibition freight forwarders and on-site operations; OH&S, Leadership/Social Skills, Country file about Russia, and many other relevant topics to empower our exhibition logistics managers.

The 2016 Operations Summit was attended by 67 delegates representing 67 IELA member companies from 29 countries. For this second edition, 100 places are available, with the participation fee for the first delegate from each member party being covered by the association (excluding travel & hotel).

During the Operations Summit 2018, all IELA member companies are invited to participate to the POSTER EXHIBITION, a great opportunity of presenting your company to all fellow participants.
