LONDON, October 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today in London UBM signed a historic 10-year agreement to host the world's premier event for the global air traffic community - ATC Global - in Beijing, China.

Joining UBM's CEO David Levin at the signing ceremony in UBM's headquarters overlooking the Thames in London were senior representatives of the Chinese air traffic control industry Mr. Zhao Fan, Director of Technical Center Air Traffic Management Bureau (ATMB); Mr. Zhang You Run, Director of General Office, ATMB; and Mr. Han Zeng Min, Director General of Civil Aviation Museum. Also in attendance was Mr. Xiaoming Zhou, Minister Counsellor from the People's Republic of China's Embassy in London.

Supported by the China Air Traffic Management Bureau and the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), the establishment of the ATC Global event ( in China reflects the growing importance of China as a rapidly-growing player in the worldwide aviation industry as well as China's role as a key regional and international transport hub, strategically located between Europe and the Americas. China's national economic development strategy recognises aviation as a key sector underpinning the country's continued economic success, with investment of US$230 billion committed to the development of China's civil aviation in the current five-year plan.*

David Levin, CEO of UBM plc, said:

"I am delighted that UBM is bringing our ATC Global event to China. ATC Global is a highly successful event which has developed alongside the growth of European aviation over the last 20 years. Today's agreement to host ATC Global in Beijing from next year represents overdue recognition that the centre of gravity for the world's air traffic control community has shifted decisively eastwards.  

"I am proud that UBM is working in partnership with official organisations across China to promote Chinese development and to make our contribution to connect China to the world. Working with our partner organisations, ATC Global's inaugural edition in Beijing will benefit from UBM's experience and expertise as the largest international trade event organiser in China."
