ROCKVILLE, Md. (PRWEB) October 11, 2019
The SATELLITE Conference & Exhibition will return to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC on March 9-12, 2020. The exhibit hall will be open from Tuesday, March 10 through Thursday, March 12, and three hundred companies are booked to exhibit on the show floor, including Airbus, Ball Aerospace, Boeing, Hughes an Echostar Company, NASA, Northrop Grumman, Peraton, Rohde & Schwarz USA, and Speedcast.
According to the Satellite Industry Association’s 2019 State of the Satellite Industry report, revenues in satellite manufacturing, ground equipment and satellite launch services all had positive growth over the previous year, and the global space economy grew 3% in 2018. The SATELLITE show’s mission is to support and sustain this growth through connecting the buyers and suppliers to each other, and to the innovation and insight they need to succeed.
For 39 years, SATELLITE has been the go-to event for big industry announcements, upcoming trends in ground systems and space technology, finding and cultivating new partnerships, and reconnecting with colleagues. Every year the show finds new ways to provide a global forum for education, collaboration, business and inspiration, and 2020 will be no exception.
New features for the SATELLITE 2020 show include:
- Conference content grouped by focus and packaged into tracks, with associated passes, making it easier to experience the conference.
- Four uniquely themed engagement stations on the show floor will foster an immersive and organic networking experience for attendees.
- Matchmaking program to help navigate and connect with the 15,000+ attendees, exhibitors, and speakers.
- Interactive formats and features integrated into the panels encouraging audience participation.
“Each one of our 15,000 attendees have unique goals and different reasons for attending the show. The new initiatives we’re launching this year, like grouping our conference passes by content focus to better highlight business and technology updates, investment in the industry and a look into innovative applications and services being driven by customers, as well as introducing a matchmaking program to encourage more engagement on both the show floor and in the conference rooms, were built with this in mind.” says Lindsey Fuller, VP of Access Intelligence’s Satellite Group. “I want each one of our attendees to have a tailored experience where they’re able to meet with exactly who they want, attend only the sessions they’ll find value in, and be provided a platform to contribute their own perspectives and ideas to the benefit of everyone at SATELLITE week.”
The conference agenda will be announced within the month, but topics to look forward to include smallsats, antennas, constellations, IOT/M2M, cloud computing, interference & network security, and an industry five-year forecast.
SATELLITE 2020 will be held March 9-12 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center located at 801 Mt Vernon Pl NW, Washington, D.C. 20001.
