Singapore to host 9th CASBAA Satellite Industry Forum

The Cable & Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia (CASBAA) has announced that it will stage the ninth CASBAA Satellite Industry Forum on Monday June 15th in Singapore at the Four Seasons Hotel. Decision-making executives from the satellite industry drawn from around the world will share their insights and address issues for the APAC market.

Themed “Over the Horizon”, the one day high-powered annual conference will cover critical issues including the future for satcoms technology, the latest business models and the road to profitability; how CEOs are coping with today’s financial challenges; the potential businesses of Ka-band satellite systems and satellite services for mobile users.

At the Forum, Rob Bednarek, CEO, SES New Skies and Mark Dankberg, Chairman & CEO, Viasat will deliver keynote addresses.
“The new demand for spectrum devoted to HDTV, interactive and broadband TV content is driving the market. The opportunities, for both FSS and DTH, are enormous,” said Simon Twiston Davies, CEO of CASBAA. “On top of this, the industry also expects to see new demand emerging from still undeveloped video services such as mobile TV and the further deployment of VSAT networks.”

The CASBAA Satellite Industry Forum 2009 is sponsored by Arianespace.
