Discover viable solutions for government, military and civil space communications challenges. We have a wide range of government and military content that provides attendees with expertise, lessons learned and advice from policy makers, top government and military officials, service veterans, industry associations and analysts. SATELLITE 2016’s government and military program includes a satellite services acquisition workshop with the assistant U.S. Secretary of Defense, a Government and Military Forum produced in partnership with the Satellite Industry Association (SIA) and an alternative space access forum produced in partnership with the Harvard Business School Aerospace Alumni Association.


Experience the latest advancements in content delivery and consumption. Immerse yourself in sessions and drill deep into topics of importance to you with conference content designed specifically for broadcasters. Our Broadcast Forum, produced in partnership with the World Teleport Association, covers everything from Ultra-HD adoption to bandwidth demands for Over-the-Top and streaming services. Learn about broadcasters’ bandwidth expectations directly from the networks.


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.


Satellite communications are the definition of mobility – on land, sea and in the air. Businesses and consumers around the world count on high-powered mobile satellite communications for day-to-day operations and reliable voice, video and data transmissions regardless of location. Our Mobility Forum, produced in partnership with the Mobile Satellite Users Association (MSUA), gives attendees an exclusive view of a world with complete, seamless connectivity, powered by satellite and hybrid communications networks.

What is SATELLITE Conference & Exhibition?

SATELLITE is the go-to industry event that shapes the future of satellite technology–bringing the leaders, and market leading companies and brands behind this transformation together in one place.

In the satellite industry, SATELLITE is known as the largest and most important global satellite communications event of the year, gathering professionals from ALL markets of the satellite community.

There couldn’t be a more important time to be involved in these conversations. During SATELLITE Week, you’ll discuss major issues such as:

  • How space-segment technology evolving at such a rapid pace has forced significant advances in ground-based technology, especially with easy-to-install, multi-band antenna designs
  • The realization of  the value of comprehensive imagery and remote sensing data by the satellite industry – a resource that is driving a surprisingly vast group of new customers to satellite’s doorstep (retail, agriculture, local governments, insurance companies, etc.)
  • The increasing options in launch vehicles are changing the economics of getting into space and doing business there
  • The adaption of satellite manufacturing techniques – and spacecraft builders – to new paradigms in time to delivery, volume and complexity of models, continued miniaturization and production processes
  • How downward pricing pressures in some world regions, coupled with the aggressive plans of emerging marketplace entrants, are forcing the big players to innovate and think differently about the value equation for communications via satellite
  • Financing for the “new space” era means billions of dollars are flowing into the idea pipeline, promising to change the future of space-based services, creating winners and losers over the next few years as companies address new market realities
