AMSTERDAM, March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
107 countries; 6 continents: a truly global representation of the ATM buying market.
Despite the arctic weather, the industry was once again out in force at ATC Global

Amanda Ellis, Director, Intelcan.
ATC Global proactively sources international buyers who are actively procuring ATM
technologies and solutions. The event facilitates hosted 1-2-1 meetings for participants
in the programme, who this year, included representatives from Myanmar, Colombia,

the conception of the Hosted Buyer Programme in 2011 the event has attracted delegations
from all major territories with approved investment plans.
“Rarely do we get an opportunity to meet with so many international ATM suppliers in
one place at one time. Thanks to the team at ATC Global, we have been given a full
itinerary of meetings each day and have benefited from extremely productive conversations
that will undoubtedly lead to the purchasing of ATM products and services. We have many
challenges ahead of us and being able to discuss these with relevant companies that can
provide relevant solutions has been invaluable. The organisation from beginning to end has
been superb and I would like to thank the team for all their commitment to making ATC
Global such a valuable experience for us,” Brigadier Jose Alberto Palermo, Director
General, DGCTA, added.
With China set to build 70 new airports by 2015, the country is already a significant
buyer within the global ATM market. In recognition of their significance, ATC Global went
to great lengths to bring a delegation of over 70 senior ATM professionals to ATC Global
in 2013. The delegation included representatives from the CAAC ATMB, the Hong Kong CAD and
all regional Chinese ATM Bureaus. Speaking on behalf of the delegation, Christine Guan,
ATC Global’s China Director states, “It has been extremely important for the delegation to
attend ATC Global to engage with fellow ATM professionals from across the globe and
participate in key discussions on the future of the industry and the part China will play
over the next few years. Having met with many companies who are doing amazing things
within the ATM space, the delegation look forward to returning home and sharing this
knowledge with their team and the wider ATM community in China.”
2014 looks set to repeat the success with over 70% of suppliers having reserved their
space for ATC Global 2014, Amsterdam – 11-13 March.
