GVF Satellite Summit

gvf

Focused on technical satellite trends and innovations that will drive content distribution globally, and then translate the outcomes of these into the context of the regional market. Following the success of the GVF Satellite Hub Summit @ CABSAT 2017, GVF will again present the Satellite Summit at CABSAT in 2018, to be held over two days on 15 & 16 Jan.

THE GVF SATELLITE SUMMIT

The GVF Satellite Hub Summit takes place within the satellite area of the CABSAT exhibition, using a dedicated, purpose built, centrally located and high-profile meetings facility. Not only does the GVF Satellite Hub Summit comes closer to the exhibition space and to CABSAT’s thousands of visitors, but offers participating organisations – sponsors and speakers – a higher level of visibility for their support for the event programme, and for the vitally important dialogues and opportunities for networking that the programme facilitates and promotes.
