Adapting to Change in ATM - Creating the Right Culture: Register Now for World ATM Congress 2017

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 8, 2016 -- Registration is now open for World ATM Congress 2017. The show returns to Madrid, 7-9 March 2017, with a conference programme featuring international air traffic management (ATM) thought leaders, a vibrant exhibition, free education theatres, and exclusive networking opportunities to connect professionals from over 125 countries, spanning the entire ATM industry.

The conference of World ATM Congress 2017 considers how best to 'create the right culture' that will facilitate quicker, desired change in this complex industry. It will start with an airline view – not just of the airline requirements but how airlines have coped with and facilitated major changes and how they seek to respond to geopolitical changes and events. The conference will then look at achieving better performance through people and how multiple stakeholders can more effectively collaborate. It will take a fresh look at a specific challenge of change in ATM – how to integrate unmanned aircraft systems safely into airspace.

The conference programme will be split into four informative sessions, each addressing different aspects of creating the right culture and adapting to change in ATM, including:

  • Responding to geopolitical and other changes
  • How do we create an innovation and people performance culture in ATM?
  • The IT culture and multi-stakeholder collaboration
  • Airspace and unmanned aviation systems traffic management (UTM): Will we develop the right approach or will the future just happen to us?

Registration is open. The early bird rate expires 31 January 2017.
