APSCC 2008 Satellite Conference And Exhibition On The Move Towards Jeju Island

by Staff Writers
Seoul, Korea (SPX) Jul 15, 2008
The satellite industry in the Asia-Pacific region is "on the move" with increasing demand for Direct-to-Home (DTH) services in India and China and with a number of broadband services via satellite significantly increasing in Asian countries including Australia.

Healthy growth of DTH service in Asia has been projected for this year as more transponders are available with lower IRD cost, and many national DTH programs being planned to be launched. Satellite carriage of High Definition Television (HDTV) also continues to grow rapidly in the region. According to a survey of 25 operators in 15 markets in Asia, 75 percent of Pay TV operators plan to launch a HDTV offering during 2008.

Satellite experts will dig into the specific details of these trends in the Asian satellite market at the largest event for the satellite industry in Asia, the APSCC 2008 Satellite Conference and Exhibition, scheduled for September 22-25 in Jeju Island.

After a delightful change of the venue to Bangkok in 2007, APSCC is heading back towards to Korea to enjoy the early fall of Jeju Island, the largest island in South Korea situated off the south east cost of the Korean Peninsula and also known as the "Island of the Gods."

Focusing on the theme of "Satellites on the Move", APSCC 2008 will highlight key issues impacting the development of the satellite industry in the Asia-Pacific region, including new satellite application technologies, services strategies and regulatory issues currently faced by the satellite community, through CEO Roundtables, panel discussions and sessions over the three-day conference.

In addition, a brand new pre-conference program, the Military Satellite Services Workshop, has been added this year on September 22 to cover the issues, applications, and equipments regarding military satellite services.

The Military Satellite Services Workshop will present how Asian countries are using satellites for their military purposes and will examine the approaches for more efficient and applicable solutions among satellite applications for military satellite services.

The 3-day event also includes the APSCC 2008 Exhibition, which will introduce new products and more efficient solutions to the satellite and space industries' marketplace. Several companies will participate the exhibition for the first time to launch and showcase their new satellite-related technologies and services that will transform or help shape the way we live.

Hosted by the Asia-Pacific Satellite Communications Council (APSCC), APSCC 2008 is supported by CASBAA, CSA, ESOA, GVF, ITSO, MSUA, PTC, CUA-SCBT, SIA and SUIRG and sponsored by Arianespace, SES-ASTRA, Boeing, Marsh, Orbital Sciences Corporation and Thales Alenia Space.
