Euroconsult’s World Satellite Business Week, Sept. 11-15 in Paris, is four conferences in one and brings together heavy-hitters from across the global satellite industry.

In addition to the satellite financing and communications focus that dominates the first three days, there’s a one-day breakout session on the connected airplane and two days dedicated to the Earth-observation market.

The SpaceNews editorial team, including editor-in-chief Brian Berger, staff writer Caleb Henry and European correspondent Tereza Pultarova, will be reporting from Paris throughout the week.
