The Conference theme A single ATM System - the Vision and the Reality will examine the challenges that inter-operability, cooperation and partnership will bring as a result of ANSPs and governments actions to build a global ATM system. The conference has been designed to communicate these issues in fresh and engaging formats. Each session will challenge and examine the routes to ATM globalisation currently planned Paul Milburn, ATC Global Event Director commented, from the performance of the future system to the technology required, the economics that underpin the various approaches, the operational concepts under consideration, and the political and regulatory issues involved, we will cover every aspect.

Visitors have expressed a strong positive feedback from last years event. This was my first time to ATC Global and what an event! Informative, insightful, professionally organised. I bumped into old friends and colleagues whom I hadn't seen in 13 years - it will be an annual fixture in my calendar from now on commented Nicholas Dyle-McGowan, an Executive Officer of the Royal Australian Air Force. Pedro Rosa, a conference delegate and assessor to the Board at Nav Portugal agreed, I have been coming to ATC Global since its first event 20 years ago...from a small exhibition to now the largest event of its kind, I always recommend this event to my peers who follow me here year on year.

ATC Global looks forward to another year of spectacular growth Registration for ATC Global Exhibition is free of charge. To register, please visit
