Today in London UBM signed a historic 10-year agreement to host the world’s premier event for the global air traffic community – ATC Global – in Beijing, China. The first edition to be held in China will take place at the China National Convention Centre in Beijing September 17-19th 2014 and will bring together air traffic control professionals and exhibitors from around the world.
Supported by the China Air Traffic Management Bureau and the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), the establishment of the ATC Global event (http://www.atcglobalhub.com) in China reflects the growing importance of China as a rapidly-growing player in the worldwide aviation industry as well as China’s role as a key regional and international transport hub, strategically located between Europe and the Americas. China’s national economic development strategy recognises aviation as a key sector underpinning the country’s continued economic success, with investment of US$230 billion committed to the development of China’s civil aviation in the current five-year plan.
