Can’t miss the IBC exhibition? Don’t miss the Global SatShow either!
Busy, exciting, vibrant: the IBC exhibition attracts thousands of professionals each year. It’s Europe’s largest event of its kind, but its reach doesn’t stop there. It’s highlighted on many calendars around the world as a not-to-be-missed event. Industry professionals from all corners of the globe gather at the IBC exhibition and conference with high expectations.
Impressive technology and solutions, networking opportunities, business leads, conference sessions, new customers and business development – this, and more, is what attendees are expecting at IBC. This is what makes the IBC exhibition important. What is equally as important is the Global SatShow. It is the principal venue for the satellite industry to band together to create a plan of action needed to overcome the biggest challenge: spectrum.
With the imminent rollout of 5G and spectrum sharing schemes being hatched, the satellite industry is facing enormous pressure and uncertainty. The United States rushed ahead with the FCC’s ruling last July adopting a first set of regulations to make new spectrum above 24 GHz available for 5G services. This move put the United Stated in the lead of the 5G race, but it also denied protected status to satellite systems that have been investing in Ka-band spectrum. What will happen next? How will satellite interference be managed? What does the satellite industry need to do? The time to take action is nigh. And this action plan will be addressed at the 3rd Global SatShow.
Running from November 8-9 at Haliç Congress Center in Istanbul, Turkey, the 3rd Global SatShow will also see professionals put other pivotal issues in the spotlight. Downward pricing trends, mobility, ground segment developments, OTT and multiscreen trends, the changes in roles within the satellite value chain, and regulation will be discussed with challenges, opportunities and solutions presented.
Alongside the conference sessions is the exhibition, which is a compelling marketplace of communications solutions. This cross-sector show will have leaders in satellite, space, telecommunications, broadcast, and IT/ITC display the latest in cutting-edge products and services.
Amidst the key sessions and the powerful display of the solutions that will enable communications of the future, the Satellite Industry Leader Awards, known as SIL Awards, will honour various companies and professionals for their outstanding achievements.
Considering all that is facing the industry, as well as the technological brilliance that has been achieved, the need for satellite players to come together is paramount. Cross-sector dialogue, co-operation and convergence are central to surviving the evolution that is currently taking place within the industry. This all makes the 3rd Global SatShow a not-to-be-missed event. Much like the IBC exhibition, the 3rd Global SatShow is an important occasion for professinals from across the world to attend.
Join the synergy, join the Global SatShow in shaping future communications!
