Networking Events and Opportunities

Networking is an integral part of any face-to-face experience, be it an organic connection in the hallway, a quick chat via the mobile app or joining attendees at an organized networking event.

We’re providing a multitude of opportunities for attendees at SATELLITE to connect:

SATELLITE Anniversary Celebration– This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the SATELLITE Conference and Exhibition, the 35th Anniversary of Via Satellite, and the 50th Anniversary of Hughes! We’re celebrating in style at the Pose Rooftop Lounge at the Gaylord where you can catch up with old friends and enjoy the views! You can begin the celebration now at Access to the Anniversary Celebration is included with your SATELLITE 2021 registration.

Birds of a Feather Meet-ups – During SATELLITE Week, we’re organizing several smaller meet-ups at different venues in National Harbor, MD. There will be meet-ups around Young Professionals, Whiskey Tasting, First-timers and more. Details and sign-up coming soon!

SSPI Chairman’s Reception – The exclusive, invitation-only Chairman’s Reception welcomes the C-Suite of the space and satellite industry, members of the Hall of Fame and the leading cohort of professionals under the age of 35 recognized by the industry as rising stars. The reception is a relaxed and intimate atmosphere perfect for conversation and networking at the end of a busy day of SATELLITE. To request an invitation, contact SSPI Membership Director Tamara Bond-Williams.

Networking in the Mobile App – The official SATELLITE mobile app allows attendees to connect before, during and after the event. Directly search, view, and chat with other SATELLITE participants! You can choose to video or text chat through the app, or set a time to meet during the in-person event in September.
