IFATCA offers the following partnership opportunities to our industry partners:

  • Exclusive access to an extensive network of aviation professionals through our Conference and four Regional Meetings held annually by IFATCA. Our Annual Conference is held between mid-March and mid-May every year in a different location worldwide. Our Regional Meetings usually are held between September and November in each of our four regions: Americas, Asia-Pacific, Africa & Middle-East and Europe;
  • Our Annual Conference and eventual associated Technical Exhibition will enable you to present your products and services. You will meet with the civil aviation officials of the host country and conference directors and delegates. IFATCA’s Technical Exhibitions provide a unique chance for an open discussion with air traffic controllers and end-users of the ATC equipment. Your company can make a spot assessment of the suitability of the equipment and/or services for the task intended;
  • An extensive knowledge-sharing platform with air traffic controllers worldwide;
  • Exposure of your company through attendance at conferences, through our website and our quarterly online publication "The Controller" magazine to provide greater visibility of your company among the ATC community of the Federation. You may wish to use “The Controller” for editorial and advertising purposes by sponsoring issues of the online magazine (potential readership is 30,000 professionals);
  • Access to our membership database for mailings;
  • The use of the IFATCA logo in your promotional events.

It is recommended that Industry Partners include in all their advertisements, when possible, the simple statement that they are Industry Partners of the Federation.
