The international World ATM Congress combines a large-scale exhibition hall, world-class conference and exclusive networking opportunities, plus the chance to learn the latest trends and developments in the air traffic management (ATM) industry. A joint effort between the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) and the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA), World ATM has become a premier international event - organised for the industry, by the industry.
World ATM Congress is a one-stop shop with an award-winning conference and exhibition all under one roof. In six short years, it has built a reputation for excellence and become a benchmark event in the industry. The event's premier conference and exclusive networking opportunities deliver the context, content and contacts that buyers and providers need to continue modernising the global airspace.
World ATM Congress leverages its network to develop a programme that is stimulating and thought-provoking. The conference programme provides a unique platform for discussing the future of ATM by bringing together the world's foremost aviation leaders to share their insights, views and expertise on the major issues and challenges facing the ATM industry.
This year's agenda, 'Rapidly Changing Skies - Around the World', will focus on the potential impact of emerging technologies and new entrants for airlines, stakeholders and the ATM community as a whole. When the conference programme is over for the day, visitors can explore the exhibition hall, featuring over 230 companies and hundreds of the world's most respected organisations.
World ATM Congress brings companies and potential clients together. Visitors can connect with more than 7,500 industry professionals, including over 80 air-navigation service providers, air traffic controllers, manufacturers of aviation products, consultants, and representatives from government, military and academia from 130 countries around the world.
With more than 200 organisations already signed on to take part in 2018, World ATM Congress is the largest gathering for air traffic control (ATC) professionals and ATM technology showcased under one roof. Leidos, Aireon, Leonardo, FREQUENTIS, G&D, Saab, MITRE, NAV CANADA, Thales, ENAV and many more will return to Madrid, along with new exhibitors from around the globe.
In addition to the free exhibition hall, World ATM Congress 2018 is once again offering complementary educational programming. Enjoy a handful of education theatres, including the new FABEC Ops Theatre, showcasing research findings, new product launches, new ATC technology and perspectives on ATM policy presented by EUROCONTROL, SESAR Joint Undertaking, the Federal Aviation Administration and many more.
World ATM Congress 2018 will be a true celebration, taking a cue from its location of Madrid, Spain's capital and the EU's third-largest city. The kaleidoscope of Madrid's neighbourhoods and buildings help mould the city's role in political and economic spheres. Its historic monuments stand as icons of a beautiful city filled with cafes and terraces. Visitors will also find there some of the world's most exciting museums in the Triangle of Art, including the world famous Museo del Prado.
World ATM Congress staff are ready to help organise meetings and leisure activities, a venue (in a hotel or special location), catering, audiovisual requirements, business lunches, informal dinners and much more.
