ESA Satcom Final Presentation Days 2019

You are invited to participate in the 2019 edition of the ESA Satcom Final Presentation Days: Technology, Products and Systems.

 This is an annual event for European and Canadian Industry and ESA technical experts to showcase the latest developments in advanced technology and products for Satcom. It will be a unique opportunity to gain an overview of all the recently completed activities and to discuss them with colleagues from both ESA and industry across the satellite telecommunications sector.

The event will consist of parallel sessions, panel discussions general and specialized presentations delivered by industry and ESA experts, highlighting the recently completed contracts and the achievements made within the ESA ARTES Future Preparations (FP), ARTES Advanced Technology (AT) and ARTES Competitiveness and Growth (C&G) programmes. Presentations will include information regarding the socio-economic impact of these activities.

This event was first held in this format in 2018, with more than 90 presentations by industry and ESA, panel sessions and elevator pitches, attracting 250 participants. The 2019 event will again be a unique opportunity to:

  • Advertise the achievements of the ESA ARTES programmes
  • Disseminate the results from recently completed technology and product developments to a broad and diverse audience
  • Cover a wide range of developments from different technical domains
  • Provide a forum for attendees to form networks and to understand the latest technologies and products that have been developed
  • Meet ARTES team members and national delegates
  • Enable more synergies, as the annual SatNEx meeting will be held in the same week.

elevator pitches at artes final presentation days 

ESA is offering a unique opportunity to any telecom space professionals with a bright idea to bring it directly to the European satcom sector.

The ESA Satcom Final Presentation Days will include opportunities for elevator pitches. Satcom sector newcomers, SMEs, and established players alike are welcome to come take advantage of Europe’s biggest space industry players all being under one roof for a few days. Priority will be given to the newcomers and SMEs, however.

The usual elevator pitch rules apply: your talk must take no longer than two minutes, and only use a single slide. You can present anything – an idea, a product, or your company – as long as the content is fresh and new. Each pitching session will be scheduled immediately before the coffee breaks to maximise the networking potential. You will have one-to-one opportunities with ESA representatives & primes during the breaks and social events.

During the registration process, you will be able to indicate your interest for a pitching slot. The slots are assigned by ESA and linked to the appropriate sessions. The organising team will contact the interested participants directly.
