Americargo Meet (ACM) is a networking conference for the freight forwarders from the American region, as well as those international forwarders who would like to further develop their businesses in this region. This event aims to connect international independent forwarders with agents from the United States and Canada.
I had the opportunity to organize the first and second editions of ACM, which were both held at the internationally renowned major resort city of Las Vegas in Nevada, United States. We chose the best hotel venues for both events: The Wynn Las Vegas (ACM 2014) and the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas (ACM 2015).
The event itinerary was exactly the same for both editions; Welcome Cocktail Reception on the first day, and hundreds of face2face meetings were held on the second and third day. Delegates from all over the world gathered to meet industry players from the region, and established business relationships with them. Aside from the business side of the conferences, we also organized a group activity for the delegates to give them the chance to know each other in a casual setting. In 2014, we organized a group tour of the city and brought them to the famous Las Vegas sign for a group photo, while we closed off Eiffel Tower Restaurant in ACM 2015, a fancy restaurant overlooking the beautiful Bellagio fountain, for a sunset cocktail.
Organizing these 2 events were a great experience. Aside from meeting people from different countries, we got the opportunity enjoy the night life in this wonderful city, and witness different shows. It was indeed rewarding.
I organized the following ACM editions:
– Americargo Meet 2014 – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
– Americargo Meet 2015 – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
