Annual trade show and summit to launch SILA: the Satellite Industry Leader Awards     

 The GlobalSatShow has returned bigger and better, offering an unprecedented line up of C-level summit speakers alongside a lively exhibition showcasing the satellite industry’s technological prowess. Key conference sessions on the pulse of the industry will address the biggest trends of today as well as map out satellite’s future. With a truly international focus, the 2ndGlobal SatShow will provide vital networking opportunities, proving to be the most efficient platform for business development. The 2ndGlobal SatShow, taking place on 29-30 November at the Haliç Congress Center in Istanbul, Turkey, is poised to be the industry event of the EMEA satellite world.

Hosted by ESOA, the EMEA Satellite Operators Association, and organised by MedyaCity, the 2ndGlobal SatShow will bring together 40 of the industry’s most influential C-level players. Together, the trends, challenges and solutions will be identified in key sessions on future co-operations in the satellite industry; mobility via satellite; human missions to Mars; satellite TV expansion; and connected transport. The show’s CEO-CXO roundtable breakfast and luncheons together with the gala dinner offer unparalleled networking opportunities and B2B meetings.

Conference sessions and the greatly anticipated CEO Summit will run alongside a vibrant exhibition comprising 2,000 square metres of elegant floor space. Within a sophisticated setting and before a picturesque riverside backdrop, the 2ndGlobal SatShow will introduce a new era in trade shows.

“The Global SatShow is well positioned to be the most crucial industry event for the world. Based in Istanbul, which bridges the western and eastern worlds, the Global SatShow is the geo-strategic link for the United States, Europe, the Middle East and Africa,” said Hakan Kurt, CEO of Global SatShow. “Finally, the EMEA region has a convenient platform for international business development and no longer has to piggyback on broadcast events. Instead, EMEA industry professionals have a worthwhile satellite-dedicated show in the heart of the world’s crossroads. The Global SatShow is the satellite event for the EMEA region and for those looking to serve customers in this market.”
