CABSAT is set to host its 26th edition at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) on May 24-26, 2021. CABSAT is an event for the content, broadcast, satellite, media and entertainment industry stakeholders in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region.
CABSAT 2021 will bring together the best creative minds, technology, innovators and leaders in the various industries to chart the course for the future. It will also provide a platform to spark innovation and collaboration.
“The last year has forced the broadcast, content and satellite spaces to adapt and rethink their business like never before”, Thomas Löffler, DWTC’s Assistant Vice President Exhibitions, said.
“The lack of physical, in-person interaction between key industry stakeholders has resulted in a great deal of missed opportunities. That is about to change. CABSAT 2021 is finally going to give these industries the in-person interaction that is so vital in creating new value by fostering connections”.
The all-new SATEXPO Summit, hosted by the Global VSAT Forum (GVF) and the EMEA Satellite Operators Association (ESOA), will focus on industries including aviation, military, maritime, humanitarian assistance and disaster response, featuring themed interactive sessions and special focus sessions, covering key topics on the satellite industry agenda.
CABSAT’s Satexpo Summit allows you to meet in-person, the most diverse and comprehensive annual gathering of the global space and satellite industry, including executives, engineers, government officials and solution providers.
It will look at how space and satellite technology have played a pivotal role in evolving many industries, including the government/military, commercial business enterprise, mobile communication, maritime, and space industry.
According to the statement, the pandemic has brought the world’s magnifying glass to the vital contribution of satellite communication technologies to dealing with such crises and the importance of innovation. With the global pandemic continuing to change the world in so many ways, the satellite industry has important new stories to tell.
CABSAT 2021 will provide much-needed platforms for discussion and discovery; its Content Congress conference will engage a unique cross-section of senior industry stakeholders with up-and-coming influencers to share insights on adapting traditional broadcast models, the benefits of disruptive thinking and the future of worldwide broadcasting.
CABSAT will once again host its homegrown content marketplace ContentScape, which is set to attract content creators and sellers who will present their ready-to-be-released content to content buyers. At the same time, CABSAT will also explore artificial intelligence’s impact on the broadcast, content, and satellite spaces.
According to the statement, lockdown measures resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic have forced the media industry to adapt at an unprecedented pace. Advertising revenues in linear TV are under greater strain than ever before. In contrast, viewership in streaming content has experienced a sharp rise, pushing platforms to their limit.
With over half of the world’s population having been kept under lockdown amid the pandemic, the world’s biggest content creators and delivery platforms were affected – Netflix was forced to reduce its streaming quality to accommodate a spike in demand, Disney+ doubled its subscribers in the weeks shortly after its launch following the introduction of international lockdown measures, and major Hollywood studios were forced to halt production.
Stakeholders across the content creation, distribution and delivery spaces now face major challenges, including keeping users engaged post-lockdown, managing new rules of streaming pricing dynamics, and meeting massive OTT demand that necessitates greater internet bandwidth.
