At least 20 British broadcast, cable, satellite and telecom companies will participate in the eighth Middle East International Cable, Satellite, Broadcast & Telecommunications Exhibition (CABSAT 2002) from 5-7 March.


Organised by the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) at its exhibition complex, CABSAT 2002 will offer a platform for companies and professionals across the world to make inroads into the west Asian market.
