NavSat S.A.S. 2004 Congress To Bring Together Over 2,000 Experts, Developers And Service Providers In Satellite Applications
Exhibition And Conference On April 27 - 29, 2004, To Lay Foundation For
Global Satellite Market Of More Than $30 Billion Annually
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Dec. 9, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- NAVSAT S.A.S.
2004 (NavSat), the International Congress on Satellite Applications and
Systems, will attract more than 2,000 senior-level decision makers and
experts from around the world to pursue the rapidly growing
international market for satellite applications, expected to reach over
$30 billion in the next ten years and stimulate growth for the economy
NavSat will take place at the Parc des Expositions in Toulouse, France,
Europe's center for space technology, from April 27-29, 2004. The
exhibition area will be the prime location for business-to-business
networking and for partner and user meetings among the more than 200
companies that will participate. Operators, users and service providers
from more than 30 countries will have the opportunity to share ideas,
research and development results, and newly developed commercial
value-added services and applications.
To emphasize how NavSat supports innovative applications for the
commercial market worldwide, the exhibition will include an Innovation
Village where new and small- to medium-sized companies will show their
products. Inventors will also present their new products and services
at an official demonstration area. In addition, inventors and creators
will share unique technological innovations at The Space Awards
Ceremony, a unique event that rewards industry advancement and promotes
it to the business community.
The international conference will be exclusively dedicated to developing
the technology solutions that meet users needs in multiple markets
including location and navigation, imaging and the environment, defense
and security, and telecommunications and multimedia. During the
conference segment of the Congress, industry leaders, experts and
decision makers will present their progress on two main themes location,
positioning and navigation, and intelligent transport systems.
Companies and participants developing applications in defense, security
and telecommunications will meet in other specialized workshops and
panels to promote their efforts.
Today for example, European road planners are testing virtual tolling
systems to save travelers time and eliminate dangerous traffic patterns
at tollbooths, demonstrating the innovative uses of satellite
navigation. In the future, a European-wide electronic tolling system
will allow citizens to travel without physical barriers anywhere inside
the European Union. For worldwide economic development efforts, the
poorest and most remote regions currently benefit from remote sensing
imagery together with satellite navigation. In this instance, the
United Nations is helping countries plan safe urban expansion by using
space-derived data to identify the areas most at risk for landslides.
Annual satellite applications revenues are forecast to grow to over $30
billion in the next ten years according to industry experts at
Euroconsult. U.S.-based Futron Corporation's latest ten-year forecast
of the demand for satellite services shows that the business has a solid
foundation and strong growth potential.
Finally, industry projections
show that global sales for the navigation, positioning and location
market alone will be nearly $15 billion each year by 2010. In this
context, NavSat S.A.S. 2004 will enable product developers and service
providers to identify and assess the potential benefits of satellite
applications and developments for users. These efforts will lead to
significant commercial opportunities in their home markets and around
