Meanwhile Alexis Brathwaite, President and Chief Executive Officer of IFATCA, will address the conference on the challenges faced by countries with less that 10 million air passengers a year, and John Vincent, Deputy Director for Strategic Safety for EASA will be joining ATC Global to shed light on the role the regulator plays in putting ASBUs into action.
Paula Milburn, ATC Global Director, said: ‘It is wonderful to see the agenda for the ATC Global 2013 Conference in Amsterdam endorsed so enthusiastically and promptly by senior industry figures. We take great care in selecting the most relevant discussion on issues highlighted to us by our Advisory Board, made up of stakeholders from every region and every sector of the ATM business chain. The impartial setting of our conference allows speakers to interpret the agenda independently and in doing so contribute to a highly refreshing and exciting debate’.
