The entire SpaceWatch Middle East team wishes you, your families and your colleagues a healthy, successful and prosperous 2017. We thank you for an exciting year. We started our journey in March 2016 with our website and a clear goal – to inform you about the full spectrum of space activities that are going on in the Middle East region and to create heightened awareness of one of the world’s most exciting industry sectors.
Let’s take a look at some statistics. At the end of 2016, we counted over 25,000 visitors to our website with over 33,000 sessions. By end of 2016, we delivered exactly 380 posts. Our top posts are read by up to 3,500 readers. Our social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, Reddit are growing rapidly. We are so grateful for your support.
We would also like to thank all of you for your support and your contributions to our Christmas charity campaign. The entire amount will be transferred to the two organisations we dedicated the campaign to: Disaster Tech Lab and Télécoms Sans Frontière. If you are inspired by their work as we are, feel free to support them directly whenever you can.
What do we have planned for this year?
We will continue to inform you about space activities in the Middle East and we will start to cover selected cyber space topics for you. On top of this, we will begin cooperation with an international human resource consulting agency, specialising in space jobs. These jobs will be posted on our website in the coming weeks as a service for our readers.
We are also delighted to announce that SpaceWatch Middle East will go mobile with our very own APPs! We will introduce our APPs on IOS and Android very soon. This will allow you to get your daily space topics on the go. Our APPs will be for free. The content will follow a fremium model that we will introduce over the next few months. We will keep you updated.
2017 presents us all with great opportunities. Stay safe and keep on reading!
Your SpaceWatch Middle East team!
