Internet Connectivity is the backbone of the global economy, accounting for almost a quarter of the entire world’s GDP. However, critical digital economy applications remain underserved by the terrestrial backbone connectivity, creating a critical opportunity for satellite operator networks to play a crucial in unlocking the next wave of digital-enabled growth. SATELLITE 2016 features an all-new High-Throughput Satellite Forum produced in partnership with NSR, and a “Connectivity for a Cause” session that explores the power and social responsibility of global satellite broadband connectivity.


Satellite innovation is going to change the way the entire world operates, as the potential of remote-sensing constellations, connected device networks, climate data solutions and consumer technology attracts a new wave of big-name investors and customers. At the same time, the continued growth and long-term viability of the satellite industry depends on continuing to attract the best and brightest minds to the sector. As the world’s largest satellite-focused show, SATELLITE 2016 prides itself on being inclusive. We invite leaders from established, start-up and NewSpace organizations together on the same stage to outline the future of the industry.
