NEWCOM WAFSAT CONFERENCE, ABUJA, 23-25 NOVEMBER 2005

High-level official endorsement of the NewCom WAFSAT Satellite Communications Conference & Exhibition – organised by the GVF, AITEC Africa and UK Event Management Partners – has been confirmed from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and the West African Telecommunication Regulators Assembly (WATRA).

A highly detailed and focused conference programme will examine mission critical issues in the global satellite telecommunications product and service marketplace as they impact the deployment of satellite and satellite hybrid-based communications solutions across the West Africa region, together with key trends in the policy and regulatory arena within individual national administrations, and across the administrations which collaborate and coordinate within WATRA.

Speakers will address the all important question of the moment: Does broadband satellite make sense for West Africa?

The further objectives of the conference include detailed exploration of the application of satellite-based solutions to meet the communications needs of a range of commercial vertical markets, as well as those of the development sector.

The two-day conference takes place in Abuja on 23-24 November, and will be followed on 25 November by a number of training course(s)/workshop(s) on the practical implementation of satellite technologies and strategies.
