Global MilSatCom conference 2019

With 2019 an essential year, for both the host nation’s SKYNET programme, disruptive ‘go fast’ efforts being pioneered in the US and NATO signing a new alliance-wide MOU – SMi Group will be hosting the 21st annual Global MilSatCom conference and exhibition in London on the 5th, 6th and 7th November at the QEII Conference Centre.

With nearly 600 attendees expected, Global MilSatCom is a key calendar date for satellite professionals across the alliance. Last year’s attendance grew by over 20% and attracted the largest ever geographical spread in its history, with attendees from 35 countries.
