World ATM Congress - the largest global platform discussing the future of air traffic management (ATM) - has exceeded the 100 exhibitor mark, and continues to grow with 10 months until its second annual event, 4 - 6 March 2014 in Madrid, Spain.
Extending its reach for 2014, World ATM Congress will host a bustling exhibit hall floor representing regions across six continents. Committed booths on the floor already cover more than the entire area used in 2013, with both returning exhibitors and 17 new additions.
New exhibitors include Korea Airports Corporation, NTT Data Corporation from Japan, and NITA ATM Solutions from Russia. A full list of confirmed exhibitors can be found at www.worldatmcongress.org/Exhibitors2014.
"World ATM Congress is the best event at which to meet clients, buyers, and agents in the ATC industry," said Donghyun Yu, Korea Airports Corporation. "We are looking forward to getting information about the ATC market. The main purpose of going to Madrid is to market our products and let people know we are the world's first airport operator with self-developed navigational aids."
World ATM Congress 2014 is forecasted to again serve as the largest international air traffic convergence of exhibitors, heads of organisations, and industry decision-makers.
"Because this conference is supported by the ANSPs, it's a great meeting place for both the customer and the vendor," said Bob Coulson, Senior Executive Account Manager of Mission Critical Networks at Harris Corporation. "I met at least 12 representatives from Air Navigation Service Providers in one day - England, Germany, France, Romania, Poland - both big and little guys. This was the perfect venue for our new product release [VCS21]."
In 2013, the Congress hosted leading aviation executives in its Conference Programme and free educational programming including SESAR JU's System Wide Information Management program (SWIM) and European Space Expo, which highlighted the role of the EU in space-based technologies.
