MADRID, March 2, 2016 /CNW/ -- Register now for World ATM Congress 2016, the world's largest ATM exhibition, opening on the morning of 8 March at IFEMA, Feria de Madrid. The event will bring together aviation leaders from 125 countries, including high-ranking regulators and officials; CEOs of airports, airlines, and air navigation service providers (ANSPs); trade associations; and leaders of the commercial companies that provide products and services to the aviation industry. The event runs through 10 March.

Registration is on track to exceed last year's 6,300 attendees, and includes:

  • Air traffic controllers and representatives from air traffic control (ATC) service providers, airports, airlines, governments, armed forces, NGOs, manufacturers, suppliers, and more.
  • Seventy-nine ANSPs.
  • Thirteen embassies.
  • A record-breaking 225 exhibitors, an increase of 22 since last year.
  • Five education theatres with over 80 hours of programming, including product demonstrations and launches, panel discussions, and presentations on recent trends and developments from over 55 leading organizations across various segments of aviation.

The award-winning World ATM Congress, now in its fourth year, is produced by the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) in partnership with the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA). The theme of the Conference of World ATM Congress is Leadership, Change, and Implementation. Four sessions over two mornings explore the industry leadership challenges that ANSPs, airlines, and airports currently face, as well as a glimpse at what the industry will have implemented in the next five years. Industry leaders will examine the impact of new technologies, such as remote towers, and new entrants to airspace, including remotely piloted aircraft systems and commercial space vehicles.

World ATM Congress 2016 will also play host to several events, including the European Commission Single European Sky (SES) Awards on 8 March and several press events throughout the three days. The IHS Jane's ATC Awards, presented during the CANSO ATM Dinner on 7 March, celebrate and reward efforts to improve airspace management.
