ATC Global Excellence Awards 2013
LONDON, Sept. 5, 2012 /CNW/ - ATC Global announced today that it will be
hosting the new ATC Global Excellence Awards in association with Air Traffic Management magazine at the 2013 Conference and Exhibition in Amsterdam. The ATC
Global Excellence Awards will recognise exceptional leadership and
outstanding contributions by individuals and organisations. As the
only independent global event in the ATM calendar, these Awards will
shine an impartial light on progress across every industry sector and
Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs), technology providers, aircraft
operators, airports and large-scale industry partnerships will be
judged in nine separate categories designed to reflect the changing
priorities within the industry. The Excellence Awards will be the
first to recognise individuals for their lasting commitment to the
industry, with one award uniquely being chosen through an ATM community
vote. The ATC Global Excellence Awards will also reflect the industry's
current priorities of safety, performance and environmental impact, and
categories will breakdown to geographical region when looking at
subjects such as ANSP management.
Paula Milburn, ATC Global Director, said: "As the ATM industry comes
together in Amsterdam for the 23rd ATC Global Conference and

the ATM industry forward. A distinguished independent panel of judges
