CABSAT returns this year for the 14th time with approximately 38% more space and at least 50 more exhibitors than the last year. With the Middle East being one of the most rapidly developing broadcast zones in the world, broadcast and production professionals supplying to the Arab world can no longer afford to ignore CABSAT.
The exhibition will primarily be devoted to Cable & Satellite Equipment & Accessories; Satellite Communications and Broadcast & Production.
However, this time, the organisers hope to introduce a few additions to the show to educate visitors on new technology. As part of these efforts, CABSAT is launching its inaugural Knowledge Exchange programme. "With CABSAT Knowledge Exchange, we aim to spearhead the communication and exchange of new and dynamic solutions and practices in the industry," commented David Lim, group industry manager - Media & Finance Events. "Consisting of conferences, workshops and discussions organised alongside the exhibition, industry professionals will have the opportunity to engage in a series of comprehensive, interactive and informative sessions."
CABSAT is currently in talks with a number of companies to launch training programmes and workshops that visitors can attend for free during the exhibition. "This is a knowledge building exercise and although it will be done on a very small scale this time, we hope to build this up over the years. This is the value add that we hope to provide at CABSAT. We don't people to just come and view a lot of new technology. We also want to provide programmes that will enable them to understand new technology and participate in workshops that help improve their skills," explained Lim.
We hope more visitors will use this exhibition to not just network but also to understand the technology better.
