Follow CANSO at World ATM


For the first time since 2019, the world’s air traffic management industry will gather in Madrid, Spain, for the 2021 World ATM Congress.

CANSO is a partner in the event, and CANSO members from around the world will once again be exhibiting at the event, and taking part in, or leading, the many debates and discussions which take place in the event’s various theatres.

In recognition, that some of its members may still not be able to attend in person due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, CANSO will be sharing as much content as possible from Madrid, starting with its CANSO Executive Summit on Monday 25 October.

Here’s how you can keep up with what’s going on.

Anyone who is at World ATM Congress is welcome to watch these discussions live in room N111. The full schedule will be available on the CANSO stand.
