Thuraya to Participate in Industry-Leading Event, Satellite 2018

The company will be involved in both the event’s exhibition and conference

Dubai, UAE, 12 March 2018 - Thuraya Telecommunications Company will be taking part in Satellite 2018 conference and exhibition, held from March 12th - 15th at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C. For the 8th consecutive year, the mobile satellite services (MSS) operator will be showcasing its product portfolio at the summit; during this event edition, Thuraya will be stationed at booth 209 as an exhibitor and will also contribute to a number of panel discussions taking place. 

Over the past year, Thuraya has received favorable attention in the international market for its launches, partnership expansions and news of its satellite continuity capabilities. The company especially gained traction for its recent portfolio diversifications through services like Thuraya Aero, its first in-flight satellite communications platform for the aerospace sector, and T2M-DUAL, a dual-mode terminal for machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and remote asset tracking. Thuraya’s positive coverage has come alongside a growing global interest in the UAE space sector as a whole, with projects in the country such as the Emirates Mars Mission and commercial space travel initiatives.

While in the US, Thuraya will also co-host, for the 7th year, a consular reception with other Emirati space-based organizations, namely, UAE Space Agency, Yahsat and Mohammed bin Rashid Space Center. The ceremony, which will celebrate the year of Zayed, will be held at the UAE Embassy located in D.C. and will extend invitations to government officials as well as Emirati students based in the region.
