LONDON, November 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The ATC Global Excellence Awards, in association with Air Traffic Management magazine, have seen a huge response from across the industry. Due to this popular demand organisers of the awards have decided to extend the deadline for entries to Friday 23rd November 2012.
The ATC Global Excellence Awards will recognise exceptional leadership and outstanding contributions by individuals and organisations. The winners will be announced at the 23rd ATC Global Conference and Exhibition in Amsterdam at an awards ceremony on the evening of Tuesday 12th March 2013.
The Award Ceremony will be held as part of a VIP Gala Dinner in the Grand Elicium Ball Room at the Amsterdam RAI. In 2012 the ATC Global VIP Dinner proved a huge success with the attendance of 350 senior industry representatives and an inspirational speech by the astronaut, Buzz Aldrin.
Paula Milburn, ATC Global Director, said, "These Awards are designed to reflect excellence across the entire industry: Air Navigation Service Providers, technology providers, aircraft operators, airports and large-scale industry partnerships will be judged in ten separate categories designed to reflect the changing priorities within the industry. The Excellence Awards will be the first to recognise individuals for their lasting commitment to the industry, with one award uniquely being chosen through an ATM community vote."
Milburn continued, "The standard of entries to date has been very high, with a larger than expected number of submissions from across the industry. We have chosen to extend the deadline to ensure everyone has a chance to take part in this exceptional evening in March 2013. From the high-level of entrants we have already received we are certain that the prestigious independent Judging Panel will have some very difficult choices to make."
The shortlist for Award categories will be announced in early December.
