Clarke, Rene Anselmo, Dr. Harold Rosen, Masanori Akiyama of Sky Perfect JSAT, Mark Dankberg of ViaSat, Romain Baush of SES and David Thompson of Orbital ATK.

The Hall of Fame Reception serves to raise awareness of our Better Satellite World and New Century Workforce, our Next-Generation talent attraction projects and our services for individual and corporate members. It is also the number-one place in our industry to see and be seen, and there are many ways to take advantage of that opportunity.
