For a fourth year in a row, IAS attended the World Satellite Business Week, a key event in the space sector, organized annually in Paris by one of our partners, Euroconsult.

During the 2016 edition, which took place from the 12th to the 16th of September and focused on ‘new space’, IAS attended about fifteen business meetings including Airbus Defence and Space, Thales Alenia Space, and Arianespace. Valérie Barthe and Etienne Fleury also met the local representatives of the Japanese and Indian space agencies, JAXA and ISRO. Furthermore, Pierre Valenti attended the key event of this annual gathering: the ‘smartplane’ conference, dedicated to the satellite services recently introduced on commercial flights.
