World ATM Congress 2018

World ATM Congress 2017, the world’s largest air traffic management (ATM) exhibition and conference, attracted a record-breaking 7,757 registrants and 230 exhibitors from 131 countries.

Íñigo de la Serna Hernáiz, Spain’s Minister of Public Works and Transport, opened the three-day Congress and the keynote speakers were Violeta Bulc, EU Commissioner for Transport and Willie Walsh, Chief Executive Officer of IAG and Chair of the Board of Governors of the International Air Transport Association (IATA). The conference explored how best to ‘create the right culture’ to facilitate desired change resulting from new technologies, new entrants to airspace such as drones, competition, and pressure to improve performance. 

Five theatres featured over 120 hours of education, including panel discussions, technical presentations, and product demonstrations and launches, from nearly 100 leading aviation professionals from industry, government, labour, and educational institutions.

 World ATM Congress is operated by the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) in partnership with the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA). World ATM Congress will reconvene 6-8 March 2018. Exhibition space and sponsorship opportunities are now available for 2018.
