A new home from home – ATC Global heads to China12 September 2014
For its 24th year, ATC Global, the world’s premier air traffic management event, has relocated from its traditional European surroundings to the country with the fastest-growing aviation industry in the world – China.
ATC Global is receiving strong European support as the event gets set to take place in China for the first time. This world-class conference and exhibition, which has previously attracted in excess of 5,500 attendees from 116 countries, will continue to unite the international ATM community when it takes place 17-19 September at the China National Convention Centre (CNCC) in Beijing.
The move to China positions the event in a region that is experiencing exceptional growth, and, although the event is moving from Europe after 23 years, it is retaining its strong European following, while becoming more accessible to ANSP's and suppliers from Asia at the same time.
As the only large-scale ATC exhibition and conference to have the full backing of the ATMB/CAAC, ATC Global is uniquely placed to provide links between China and the rest of the world's ATM community, and will provide a bridge between Europe and Asia.
The event already has a strong international backing, with exhibitors including: EUROCONTROL, SESAR, Thales, Northrup Grumman Park Air Systems, Terma, Rohde & Schwarz, Selex ES, LPS SR, Airtel ATN, Entry Point North, Barco and Frequentis, Honeywell, Exellis, Airways New Zealand, Sunhillo, R.I.S.K., All Weather, Zhengzhou Huahang, Spaceon, Exelis, Nanjing Les, CAUC, ENAC, Haifeng General Aviation, EIZO Corporation, SIA RADARDOME, Beijing Institute of Radio Measurement, Telmec, Datumstruct, Nanjing Nriet, Anhui Sun Create, Sichuan Jiuzhou and many more.
Paula Milburn, development director for aviation at UBM Live, comments: "ATC Global aims to unite the international ATM community and provide a platform to drive forward a global agenda. Participation from all parts of the world is essential in achieving this goal, and it's wonderful to see so many past supporters of the event in Europe following it to Beijing with such enthusiasm."
Frank Brenner, director-general of Eurocontrol, explains: "China is the fastest-growing aviation market in the world; as we strive to improve the performance of the air traffic management network, we need to look beyond Europe in order to develop connections with the global network. We look forward to ATC Global and the opportunities that it can offer."
Charles Houseago, managing director of Northrop Grumman Park Air, adds: "Considering the potential offered by the growing Asian market, relocating ATC Global makes sense and is a positive step towards opening up business opportunities for international suppliers."
