-- International ATM Event Recognized with Top Honors by Eventoplus Awards in Spain
MADRID, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- World ATM Congress's first edition in 2013 recently won the top prize at the Eventoplus Awards. Out of 159 submissions, World ATM was awarded gold as the Best Congress overall.
It's highly unusual for a first-time event to receive such accolades. As subsequent editions continue to grow, Madrid provides the perfect backdrop to showcase the industry's best practices, brands, and talent.
Peter F. Dumont, President & CEO of the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA), said: "It's especially gratifying to receive this award on our first effort. AIM Group Madrid has worked diligently with our team to meet the demand for access to the ATM community in an innovative and vibrant environment. Madrid CVB and IFEMA went above and beyond to make our attendees welcome and the event successful."
Jeff Poole, Director General of the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO), said: "We are honoured to receive such positive and remarkable recognition for the first event. But the most important recognition is the year-on-year growth and success of World ATM Congress, which reaffirms the strong need and support for a single global ATM forum by the industry, for the industry."
The 2013 event hosted 5,084 participants from 104 countries. In 2014, the World ATM Congress attendance grew to 6,265 people from 128 countries, making it the largest ATM event in the world. Attendance for the 2015 event is expected to significantly exceed this year's record.
Aviation professionals from around the world are also praising World ATM Congress as a must-see event. It encompasses all sectors of the air traffic community–-from senior executives, controllers, aviation manufacturers and suppliers, airline executives, military and government, young aviation professionals and aviation trade associations.
The event was such a success that Congress officials extended its contract for three additional years. The next World ATM Congress will take place 10–12 March 2015 in Madrid.
