World Teleport Association, Singapore Telecommunications + PTC'14—The Myth Is Destroyed! (Event—Panel) + New Member Is Welcomed... (Business)

[SatNews] World Teleport Association (WTA) and the Singapore Telecommunications are pleased to once again produce the annual satellite Industry Dialogue and Workshop Series at PTC.

The death of the boring panel starts here!  Starting with two, fast-paced, "TED Talks-style” opening talks, one by an established regional carrier and the other by the "new kid in the neighborhood,” a panel of satellite operators and new entrants into the industry will discuss how the death of satellite is—and always has been—a big myth.

As trends such as big data, government-sponsored attempts to provide broadband services, a multi-screen universe and telecommunications morphing into all types of services, satellites are more relevant in the region than ever before.  What you hear may surprise you!  This year’s industry workshop will reveal a side of the boring satellite business that you will think about long after the conference is over.  The panel will be moderated by Louis Zacharilla, Director of Development, WTA.

The confirmed speakers include:

  • Diego Paldao, Vice President, Europe & Americas, NewSat Limited
  • Tan Tian Seng, Director of Capacity Management & Business Development, SingTel Satellite
  • John Hane, Counsel, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman
  • Gary Hatch, CEO, ATCi

The workshop is underwritten by NewSat, with support from SingTel.
