HONG KONG, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- The 7th Annual Sino-International Freight Forwarders Conference is underway with over 1300 delegates coming from 600 cities and 171 countries. The event continues to grow in size, and every year, more and more delegates from around the world flock to meet face-to-face to discuss business opportunities, new technologies and to simply exchange knowledge sets.

This year has also seen a sharp increase in delegates from the continent of Africa many of which have invested heavily in order to make a strong presence. The African delegates are expecting that the amount of trade between their continent and the world will grow dramatically in the following years. With mainland China being their largest trade partner, it was essential for the independent freight forwarders from Africa to attend the Sino-Conference which gathers so many potential mainland Chinese partners.

Delegates can meet with existing and potential partners from over 170 countries all at one venue. Many have said the savings in dollar amount for not having to travel to various countries is in the hundreds of thousands.   More importantly, the savings in time and energy to come to one location and meet everyone at one venue is what makes this event so invaluable. The AsiaWorld-Expo has provided the perfect setting for this yearly event for 3 consecutive years and has always delivered exceptional services and facilities.

"Quite simply, AsiaWorld-Expo offers the best conference facilities I have ever come across," said Mr David Yokeum, President, WCA Family of Logistic Networks Ltd. "The services have been excellent and have made organising this large-scale event a pleasure. It's also been impressive to see that AsiaWorld-Expo continues to raise the standard of its services and is always looking for new ways to add value. I would wholeheartedly recommend this venue to any conference organiser."

This year, for the first time, includes several multinational airlines such as Emirates, Qatar, Thai Airways, Cathay Pacific, Etihad and others who have come to meet with their clients, the independent forwarders. Bringing such service providers will allow the independents to discuss and negotiate better deals in order to provide their customers with better rates and services.
