Eutelsat is also the first exhibitor to sign up to showcase its products at this year’s CBU Annual General Assembly taking place in Kingston, Jamaica from August 13-15, under the theme, “Building Resilience to Climate Change: Business, Technology and Content Options for Caribbean Media.”

The theme of the June 6 webinar will be, “Driving Digitalization via Satellite – how hybrid distribution infrastructures accelerate the digital transformation”.
