ATC Global 2011 is on the Horizon

The twenty-first ATC Global takes place in under two weeks.  Between March 8-10 2011, record numbers are expected to attend the Amsterdam RAI to take part in the 3 day exhibition and 2 day conference.
The annual event is undoubtedly the meeting place for the Global ATM community, and as ANSPs and governments around the world plan the introduction of a truly global single ATM system, it takes place at a critical time.

The number of visitors registered to attend has exceeded 2010 figures to date by over 18% meaning well over 5000 people are expected to attend the show this year, which will be the biggest on record. Paula Milburn, the Event Director explains, Every year the Show just gets better. We now have 220 companies exhibiting, and support from industry leaders such as SESAR, EUROCONTROL and Thales allows us to offer a fantastic education programme to our visitors. The key to the shows 21 years of success is its quality and relevance, every year we evolve in response to the changing industry we serve and its needs.

So how will the 2011 show exceed expectations? As well as three exhibition halls where suppliers will showcase the most extensive range of products found anywhere in the world and an extensive free education programme,  this year visitors will benefit from a new workshop theatre on the exhibition floor, more in hall networking and catering space, extended opening times and better communication. Key show information and interviews with key industry figures will be broadcasted via a series of networked screens around the venue. Its clear that ATC Global 2011 will deliver their best ever content in a really easily accessible and clearly communicated format.

Whether visitors interests are technical, strategic or operational, they will find an abundance of choice to keep them well informed across the three days of the event. Nearly 30 free seminars will be presented, such as Bring the Global Surveillance Solution to your Airspace, presented by Daniel Muller, the Director Innovation & Future Architectures, CNS Systems, THALES. And aside from these seminars, which are designed to cover the developments and trends of every segment of the ATM Industry, there are a number of longer workshops and forums taking place covering topics such as interoperability, ADS-B Deployment, SESAR updates, delivering network performance, safety, the environment and much more.

Over the 8th and 9th March, this years high-level conference is where the industrys most foremost decision-makers will meet to examine the concept of a single global ATM system and to explore the obstacles and enablers that separate the vision from the reality. Delegates will hear from a line up of industry leaders including Brigadier Luiz Cláudio Ribeiro da Silva, Head of our Operations Sub Department, DECEA, Brazil; Mr. Graham Lake the Director General of CANSO and Mr. David McMillan, the Director General of EUROCONTROL, as well as a wide range of influential speakers from Latin America, the Far East and other rapidly expanding regions where the dynamics and economics of ATM service provision offer their own particular challenges.

For some, the event is a place to source and compare products and services while for others it is an opportunity to update their knowledge, or interact with other like-minded professionals. As well as the formal networking of the day, where many strategic and profitable relationships will no doubt be forged, there are also complimentary drink receptions being held to offer a more informal place to interact with other attendees.

And there is still time to attend this years show. Book your free of charge place at to collect your badge at the exhibition.
