Following on from the overwhelming success of SMi Group’s Global MilSatCom, the world’s leading military satellite communications conference & exhibition, this event is one of the first of its kind in this region and will tackle the latest security and communications challenges faced by one of the world’s most forward-moving markets.

Delegates are now registered to attend from nearly 20 countries and virtually every continent including Qatar, Nigeria, Libya, UK, Pakistan, USA, UAE, Sweden, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, France, Egypt, Germany, Serbia, Oman, Venezuala and Kuwait.
