SATCON, The Satellite Communication Conference & Expo, runs from November 13-14, 2013, New York, NY. The keynote is "Leadership Dialogue: Present Priorities, Future Vision." Join a moderated dialogue between leaders of today’s satellite business and the winners of SSPI’s 2013 Promise Awards, satellite executives under 35 who have been identified by their employers and an independent jury as potential leader of tomorrow’s industry. The dialogue will explore the most profound trends shaping technology, markets and business models in coming decades, from HTS to launch vehicles, ubiquitous communications to in-orbit industries.

From different perspectives, present and future leaders will try to define what the world’s first and most successful space industry will look like when today’s young executives are in the C-suites of tomorrow’s companies. Learn more...
