The International Association of Movers (IAM) is the moving and forwarding industry’s largest global trade association. With more than 2,000 members, it comprises companies that provide moving, forwarding, shipping, logistics, and related services in more than 170 countries.
This year, IAM 55th Annual Meeting & Expo was held at Long Beach, California. It is a city on the Pacific Coast of the United States, by the beautiful beach, having nice weather and palm trees.
The IAM 2017 Annual Meeting is spread over 4 days from Oct 9th to Oct 12th packed with technical contents in the form of plenary presentations, workshops and interactive panel sessions.
The theme of this year’s IAM Annual Meeting and Expo is “Charting a New Course”. The event attracted over 1,800 delegates from all over the world and offered a multitude of formal and informal networking opportunities as well as an exhibition to promote the growth and success of its members.
Excel Worldwide Moving & Storage attended this grand event and brought Chinese symbols. Yes, it was panda! Besides, our well prepared give-away also gained popularity among global delegates.
We met delegates from different countries (e.g. the USA, Germany, Britain, Netherlands, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, etc.) and had interactive and productive communication with each of them. We also learned the latest innovations in moving management tools and services.
After the four-day occupied schedule, we finally got a chance to relax and have some fun during the closing dinner.
We gave our gratitude to all IAM staff and participating delegates and wish to see them again next year at National Harbor Maryland in Washington, DC.
At last, enjoy the beautiful sunset by the Long Beach once again.
