The Casbaa chairman's award 2006 was presented at the conclusion of the Casbaa TV advertising awards held on the final day of the Casbaa Convention 2006 in Hong Kong.

The formal citation for Jackson's award reads, "In recognition of Peter Jackson's unparalleled professionalism and integrity in one of the most competitive sectors within our industry and his ongoing commitment to the association."

"Beyond that, Peter's contribution's to the association as a board member and the leading representative of the satellite sector has helped enormously to create the credible industry voice that we are today," added Fenez.
