Talk Satellite and CommsDay will once again reconvene the highly successful Australasia Satellite Forum 2017.  A gathering of world and domestic satellite leaders will converge on Sydney for this TWO Full Day event on the 2 & 3 May 2017 at the Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney, Australia. The aim to identify and initiate needed dialogue for the development of Satellite as a primary delivery mechanism for universal service purposes.  The Australasia Satellite Forum, will provide a uniquely inclusive forum to address issues of urgent concern to governments, military, enterprise, and end user entities. Last years event received rave reviews, proving once again that the Australasia Satellite Forum is the major business networking hub for the region.

The Australasia Satellite Forum continues to grow year on year and it is therefore important to develop the event in line with market demand. The addition of the Expo area was a tremendous success during our 2016 event,  and again this year we have received numerous requests for exhibition booths to enable companies to show their products and services in a more visible environment. This will attract further visitors from the value chain that appreciate the trade show experience to conduct their business requirements.
