SMi Group’s Global MilSatCom 2017 Conference & Exhibition will take place on 7-9 November at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel in London.

Europe’s leading event for defence and military satellite professionals will open doors next week, with an expected attendance of over 500 delegates from nations and organisations including Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Ghana, Israel, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Nigeria, Norway, Poland, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, USA and more.

Military attendees are at an all-time high, with nearly 150 representatives from a global audience of armed forces.

Featuring the show’s best-to-date agenda, the three-day conference will provide delegates with over 40 presentations from leading commercial players as well as military and government personnel. An expert speaker list of over 50 industry movers and shakers will host exclusive presentations on core developing themes for MilSatCom this year, including GovSatCom, Wideband AoA, and ground segment innovations. 

“This year’s programme is inarguably the best and most international in the event’s history,” SMi Managing Director Dale Butler said. “Delegate numbers are up by 30% and the event is looking to attract around 500 attendees this year, which will be a new record for the conference series.”

Described as “the best networking event” by its audience, delegates will also have the opportunity to meet and network with the Who’s Who of the global milsatcom landscape through dedicated networking sessions hosted by SES, Airbus, Lockheed Martin and Eutelsat.
