ATC Global 2015 today announced the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Airports, President of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Chairman and CEO of Emirates Group and Chairman of Dubai Air Navigation Services.

Over the past 25 years, HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum (right) has been at the forefront of Dubai's remarkable economic development spearheading the successful expansion of the aviation sector, which now supports 27 per cent of Dubai's GDP, and more recently, formulating economic, investment and fiscal policies and strategies in support of the Emirate's overarching vision.

Speaking of his support of ATC Global 2015 taking place at the Dubai World Trade Centre, UAE on 5-7 October, HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum stated: "Aviation has been an instrumental engine in driving unprecedented growth in the economy of Dubai. It has benefited from a clear vision and investment in innovative minds, technology, and research and development. We look forward to welcoming aviation professionals from the UAE, the region and the world over at ATC Global 2015 this October to participate in shaping the future of the air traffic management sector."

Speaking on behalf of the event organisers, Paula Milburn, Development Director -Aviation, UBM EMEA said: "We are honoured that HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum will be patron of the event and have been delighted with the overwhelming support and enthusiasm that ATC Global is receiving from its supporters in the UAE and across the world."

Dubai International (DXB) has developed from humble beginnings into becoming the world's busiest airport in terms of international passenger figures, with a network of over 280 destinations served by more than 110 airlines, making Dubai a fitting location to host the leading international event for the air traffic management (ATM) and control industry.

ATC Global has been serving the ATM community, setting the pace in ATM events for 25 years. The exhibition and conference provide a platform for leaders and executives representing air navigation service providers, aviation regulators, air traffic management suppliers, defence organisations, airports and airlines to share knowledge, build partnerships and discuss the most critical issues facing the industry.

Supported by regional stakeholders General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Dubai Air Navigation Services (DANS), Dubai Airports and Emirates airline and shaped by a distinguished advisory board of industry leaders, ATC Global will encompass a comprehensive exhibition featuring organisations leading the transformation of ATM and a varied educational programme incorporating free-to-attend workshops and a conference on the theme of Connecting the Continents.
