Hannover Fairs USA is launching a new satellite conference this fall in New York aimed primarily at the investment community, it was announced today.
ISCe Satellite Investment Symposium(ISIS) NYC ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œ06 is slated for Nov. 28, 2006, at the law offices of Jones Day in mid-town Manhattan.
Hannover, an international conference organizer, expects to bring together top executives from all segments of the satellite industry—satellite TV, satellite radio, mobile satellite, fixed satellite—with satellite users, financiers and the Wall Street community.
“Since the cancellation of the SkyFORUM event two years ago, the satellite industry has not had a true satellite finance event in New York City,” said Art Paredes, president & CEO of Hannover Fairs USA. “I am pleased to announce the launch of this new executive-level, one-day program, which will focus on the financial foundations of the multi-billion dollar satellite communications marketplace.”
In addition to Jones Day, partners in the venture The Carmel Group, NSR, the Society of Satellite Professionals International, and the Satellite Industry Association.
Media partners are TVNewsCheck and SatNews Publishing.
ISIS NYC ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œ06 will feature three panel sessions with top satellite and broadcasting executives representing key industry sectors, three exclusive CEO interviews and a high-profile keynote luncheon speaker.
“Given the increasing role of private equity players in the commercial satellite communications sector, the financial aspects of this great industry have taken front and center stage over the last few years,” said David Bross, chairman of the ISIS and the ISCe Conference & Expo.
“We and our esteemed industry and media partners believe there is a need for a venue that fosters dialogue and debate between leading members of the financial community and executives representing the multi-faceted satellite services sector.”
