MUMBAI: CASBAA, which will be hosting its annual Satellite Industry Forum in Singapore this June, will explore the latest developments and issues affecting the satellite industry in the Asia Pacific.

The CASBAA Satellite Industry Forum 2015 is a one-day event that brings together industry experts to examine a variety of topics and to exchange and discuss information critical to the development of the communications sector and related services across the Asia-Pacific.

The conference has an impressive lineup of speakers and a good mix of Asian and global players in attendance. Last year around 100 companies were represented with almost half of delegates coming from the US and Europe- with most of the balance coming from Asia.

“Satellite services are instrumental in delivering television signals to the bulk of viewers across the region, and the satellite sector is an integral component of the multichannel TV industry in Asia. The annual CASBAA Satellite Industry Forum is an extremely important event in our calendar, a fact that is reflected by our very active Satellite Industry Committee, as well as by the number of satellite-related companies that are CASBAA members,” said CASBAA CEO Christopher Slaughter.

ITU secretary-general Houlin Zhao will deliver this year’s welcome keynote.

“Zhao only took office in January this year so for many this will be the first opportunity for people to see him in this capacity,” said CASBAA programme director Kevin Jennings.

In addition, Intelsat chief executive officer Stephen Spengler will also be delivering an Industry Keynote. Spengler is a satellite and telecommunications industry veteran with experience in the media, broadband, government and internet sectors and is a driving force behind Intelsat’s next generation of satellite solutions.

Myanmar Communications and Information Technology deputy minister U Thaung Tin will also speak at the forum and discuss Myanmar’s plans to launch its own satellite and how the role of a sovereign satellite will impact the country.

The theme for 2015 asks “Is The Satellite Game Changing?” in acknowledgement of the ever-evolving industry landscape. The agenda for this year’s forum will touch upon the challenges the industry is facing as the very definition of television changes to embrace new technologies, delivery methods and consumer habits.

The roster of speakers encompasses the whole value chain of the satellite industry including: SKY Perfect JSAT Space & Satellite Bus Group exec officer Mitsutoshi Akao, SpeedCast CEO P J Beylier, Intelsat Asia Pacific Regional VP Terry Bleakley, MEASAT CEO Paul Brown-Kenyon, SSL Business Development SVP Richard Currier, ABS CEO Thomas Choi, GapSat CEO Gregg Daffner, Intelsat associate general counsel Gonzalo de Dios, Eutelsat CEO Michel de Rosen, MEASAT Space Systems Development SVP Dr. Ali Ebadi, LeoSat CEO Vern Fotheringham, ITU Space Services Department chief Yvon Henri, APT Satellite EVP Huang Baozhong, Via Sat programme manager Erwin Hudson, SES CCO Ferdinand Kayser, Eutelsat orbital resources director Ethan Lavan, SES Asia-Pacific and Middle East SVP Deepak Mathur, SpaceX commercial sales & business development SVP Barry Matsumori, Encompass Digital Media Asia MD Deepakjit Singh, Globecast Asia MD Soo Yew Weng, Sea Change International SVP& GM Dave Ulmer and AsiaSat CEO & president Bill Wade.

The sponsors on-board the CASBAA Satellite Industry Forum 2015 are ABS, AsiaSat, Boeing, Eutelsat, Intelsat, JSat, Lockheed Martin, Marsh, Measat, SES, SSL, and Telstra.
