KOLKATA: The Asia Video Industry Association (AVIA) will be hosting this year’s Satellite Industry Forum (SIF) as a virtual conference, taking place over two days, from 24 – 25 September, 9.30am – 11.30am (SGT).

As Asia’s leading satellite conference, the theme of Video in the Satellite World will look at the key conversations driving the industry today, with industry leaders sharing their thoughts on The State of the Satellite Industry with the Impact of COVID-19, a view on Asia with the outcomes from WRC-19, and weighing the Bear vs Bull Case for 5G. There will also be much conversations on the coming year, as we look at Satellite Financing and what to watch for in 2021, if it will truly become the landmark year for 4K UHD, and what will Drive Global Growth for the industry in the next decade.

Speaking at the Industry Leaders Talk will be Christophe Cazes, CEO of Eutelsat Asia. In this opening panel, Cazes will be sharing his perspectives and predictions on the satellite industry over the course of the coming year.

“Satellite industry in Asia has been undergoing a big transformation with the emergence of new players and the launch or investment in satellites of new generation. The COVID-19 situation will either be a catalyst or a disruptor of these trends,” said Cazes.

 This year, the conference will also be taking a look at Women in Satellite, a predominantly male industry, for a conversation on their perspectives, challenges and ideas for putting together best practices to strengthen gender equality both in the sector and within our organisations, as well as their perspectives on what the industry might look like in the coming year. This panel will bring together  KISPE Space strategic business manager Anita Bernie; SES Networks SVP global government Nicole Robinson; EMEA Satellite Operators Association (ESOA) secretary general Aarti Holla-Maini; Mynaric USA  president Tina Ghataore.

“I’ve seen a small shift in women being invited to speak at satellite forums - and not just on topics related to diversity in the industry - but clearly more needs to be done. I look forward to the day when I’m invited to speak and I see around me panelists reflecting both gender and cultural diversity,” commented Ghataore.

Other key speakers joining the Satellite Industry Forum this year include:

Marc Halbfinger, CEO, PCCW Global

 Yew Weng Soo, VP sales and market development, SES Video, SES

Terry Bleakley, regional VP, Asia Pacific, Intelsat

Shakunt Malhotra, MD, Asia, Globecast

Roger Tong, CEO, AsiaSat

 Lon Levin, president and CEO, GEOshare

Alvaro Sanchez, CEO, Integrasys

Paul Estey, EVP, Customer Relations and Advisor to CEO, Maxar Technologies

 Mark Dankberg, CEO, ViaSat

The Satellite Industry Forum aims to deliver as close an experience as possible to a physical event. All delegates will be able to enjoy a full event platform which will include access to the live conference sessions, virtual networking opportunities as well as meeting rooms to connect and engage with industry peers during the conference. All sessions will also be available for catch-up viewing on demand after the live event.
