Kenyan capital city Nairobi will once again host the Flower and Perishable Logistics Africa conferences this year on November 23 and 24. While Flower Logistics Africa (FLA) will roll out its fifth edition on November 23 at the city's Radisson Blu Hotel, Perishable Logistics Africa (PLA) will have its fourth edition on the next day at the same venue. The two-day shipper-centric event, organized by Logistics Update Africa, a STAT Media Group publication, is being held after a gap of three years because of Covid and intermittent lockdowns imposed by different countries to contain the spread of the Coronavirus.
The two-day conference has a mix of keynotes, panel discussions, and special presentations on Africa's flower and perishables export and logistics against the backdrop of the devastating impact Covid had on farmers and growers. The deliberations, featuring stakeholders from across the value chain, will share insights from lessons learned from the pandemic and how the industry is now better prepared.
This year, Brussels Airport, one of the most important centers of economic growth in Belgium and a key air cargo gateway to Europe, presents the two-day conference. "This conference is a great opportunity to better understand and connect with origin markets which is the main driver in the flower and fresh trade. As an airport, we want to fulfill our critical role as an entry point to the best of our abilities and therefore sharing information and having the right network is key. As a presenting partner, we have the opportunity to contribute to the conference in the best way possible," said Samuel Quintelier, Cargo Business Development Manager, Brussels Airport Company.
