The World ATM Congress 2014, organized only for the second time, has proven its importance to the Air Traffic Management (ATM) industries.
The World ATM Congress 2014 had a record attendance – with 6,265 attendees. Not only has it improved in numbers and sustained growth from its inaugural edition but the event has become a “must attend” for the air traffic community. The World ATM Congress took place 4 - 6 March in Madrid, Spain at Feira de Madrid (IFEMA) – the confirmed venue for the next 3 editions of the event.
“The launching of this new congress for the Air Traffic Control sector responded to the needs for having a more dynamic networking atmosphere and this second edition only proved its importance,” shares Smara Iglesia, Senior Project Manager at AIM Spain. “Not only was the event larger,” said Peter F. Dumont, President & CEO of ATCA, “it was better. With 190 exhibitors and visitors from 128 countries, the exhibition floor was rich for business. There was clearly a demand for access to the ATM community in an environment that encourages innovation and we have provided it."
The next World ATM Congress will take place 10 - 12 March 2015 and we are looking forward to those three days of stimulating and productive work.
