Who Attends Global ATS-V

Halldale Group’s Established Network


Global ATS-V 2020 is promoted to a high quality audience gathered over 30 years of work with the airline training community and more than 80 trade conferences such as WATS, APATS & EATS.

Our events program was launched in 1998, with the first WATS conference and exhibition, to satisfy demand from the airline training community. All Halldale events are conference led and designed by and for our B2B communities to support best practices in training and with the aim of maximizing exhibitor and delegate value.

All attendees, once at the event, are able to participate in the entire program; conferences, exhibits & networking.

The addition of a virtual components to the meetings, which has been accelerated by the Covid 19 crisis, will make the 2020 and ongoing events even more valuable.

“Face to Face has depth, Virtual has reach, Live has it all”!
