CASBAA (ACN Newswire)
2012-05-29 Hong Kong, May 29, 2012 - ( ACN Newswire ) - CASBAA has announced an outstanding programme of speakers and sponsors for its 12th annual Satellite Industry Forum on Monday, 18 June at the Shangri-La Hotel Singapore reflecting the Asia Pacific's key position "at the heart of global growth" for the industry.
"As the representative Association for multichannel TV and the communications sector in the Asia Pacific, it is vital that we hear from all aspects of the industry including the satellite services sector which continues to play such a huge role in the growth and development of the market," said Simon Twiston Davies, CEO, CASBAA.
Recent headlines demonstrated the complexity of the satellite sector in Asia. From India's retroactive satellite tax plan and the search for additional frequencies for mobile IMT systems outlined at the recent World Radiocommunication Conference to the impending digitisation of Indian cable TV systems and the growth of DTH in other emerging markets, never before has the need for information and knowledge been so important.
Among the respected speakers leading the June 18th discussions on these topics and more will be Michel de Rosen (CEO, Eutelsat Communications), Jean-Yves Le Gall (Chairman & CEO, Arianespace), Cheng Guangren (President, APT Satellite), Yvon Henri (Chief, Space Services Department, ITU), Osamu Inoue (Director of the Board, SKY Perfect JSAT) and Barry Matsumori (SVP, SpaceX) among others.
"With such an impressive roster, we anticipate another dynamic Forum highlighted by lively debate, insightful panels and unparalleled networking opportunities," added Twiston Davies.
