SatComm2014 to Showcase the Latest Developments in Asia's Satellite Industry



Singapore, May 29, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - A noteworthy highlight of CommunicAsia2014, industry's preferred information and communication technology business event in Asia that will be held at Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre from 17 - 20 June, SatComm2014 will once again unveil the largest contingent of satellite companies witnessed at any single ICT trade event in Asia.

Satellites play an integral role in the global communications ecosystem, by providing global connectivity that allows the instantaneous transmission of data and information across the world. Billions of people, governments, militaries and businesses rely on satellites every day to send and receive critical information, consume global news and media, communicate and travel. Its efficient, secure and reliable nature has transformed how governments and industries communicate and operate.

Satellites have also made instant communication and point to point data connectivity possible in rural and remote corners of the world. This is especially important for international relief efforts, military, oil and gas, maritime and aviation industries. The satellite industry therefore plays a key role in empowering multiple industry sectors with the necessary network and connection needed for users to stay connected constantly, especially with the growing trend of mobility and connectivity in recent years.

SatComm2014 will feature more than 160 global and regional satellite and satellite-based communication enterprises present this year.
