Big Apple Satellite Week
Yes the holiday season is in full swing here in NYC, but if you see a lot of happy space law and business types running around town, that's because this is also "Satellite Week" in the Big Space Apple.
Many noteworthy events on tap.
First stop, top players in the way out world of satellite finance converge at Jones Day's law offices in mid-town Manhattan for the ISCe Satellite Investment Symposium -- ISIS NYC '06 -- tomorrow, Nov. 28, a hot happening, complete with a keynote by FCC Commissioner Jonathan S. Adelstein. (And see my earlier post.)
Also tomorrow, the Global VSAT Forum (GVF) holds its Disaster Recovery Satellite Summit on "Redefining the Critical Mission," at the Omni Berkshire Place Hotel.
Then, in its fifth year, the Satellite Application Technology Conference Expo (SATCON), rocks the Javits Convention Center Nov. 29-30. The show focuses on "applications for satellite, content delivery and communications including video, voice, data and internet over satellite, fiber and hybrid networks."
Lots of speeches, panels, presentations, dining, receptions and networking from here to GEO and back. So from the home office in Manhattan, SLP welcomes the satellite industry to NYC. Enjoy the nonstop action. Hope to see you here. And if you have any spare time, go shopping on Fifth Avenue ;).
