THE DEMAND FOR SATELLITE SERVICES IN THE MIDDLE EAST
Presented on March 17, 2009, 9-10am EST. Invite your entire staff to attend at one low price, $295 per location. Each registration comes with access to the archived version of the program and the materials for 1-year.
The Middle East is one of the most dynamic markets for satellite communications anywhere in the world. Blossoming pay-TV markets, strong demand for business applications and military satellite capacity, means everywhere you look, there are interesting and vibrant markets for satellite players to target.
The key questions facing companies wanting to do business in the region are:
Will the region be impacted by the global economic downturn? What impact will falling oil prices have in the region?
Which are the major markets for growth in the region? Why is this still an attractive market for satellite players?
What impact will new players such as Yahsat have in the market? How do local operators and international fit together in this region?
Is there a satellite broadband opportunity in the Middle East? How are the video markets shaping up?
With Allied Forces expected to be pulling back their involvement in Iraq, will there be less demand for military satellite capacity in the region?
Is it a good or a bad time to be involved in the satellite industry in the Middle East?
In a major webinar on the subject, Via Satellite will have some of the industry’s top executives and thinkers presenting to you directly and answering all of these key questions facing companies in this sector.
