From 8 until November 10th, Versluys Logistics and Ostend-Bruges Airport attended 'The International Air Cargo Association' (TIACA) forum in Miami Florida. Our eye-catching exhibition stand attracted a lot of attention and it was an honor to welcome so many local and international guests.

During this 3-day top event, our team made many interesting contacts with world leading ground handling companies, airlines and project developers in airport infrastructure. Our much-discussed Cargo Village project that we are currently building and developing at Ostend-Bruges Airport, got a lot of attention and was very popular in the cargo-airline community present at the fair.

Following on these contacts at the TIACA forum, some advanced and promising discussions are currently underway with potential tenants.

Stay tuned, more news to come…
