Mubarak bin Fahad, Director-General of DWTC, said : "Cabsat has stirred up a keen interest from international exhibitors this year and companies representing leading cable, satellite, broadcast and communications fields are participating at the event from more than 27 countries around the world." Cabsat is the pre-eminent show in the region for companies seeking to gain a firm footing in the region's fast emerging cable, satellite and communications sectors which forms the core profile of the event. Several exhibitors have reserved sessions for seminars, presentations and workshops at Cabsat. The seminars will take place during the three-day show in the Ras Al Khaimah room above Hall 6 and entry is free for trade visitors.

There will be seminars by Glocom, a Harmonic solution provider in the Middle East. MediaCom, another exhibitor will be using the event to launch its Hyundai branded high-end and high quality satellite receivers with the latest technology and solutions. Luxsat will provide a presentation on how the end user can take control of the television and will launch the world's first real entertainment on-demand satellite TV service at the event. Dalet will conduct a presentation on adopting a pragmatic approach to digital archiving and offer several case studies and suggests a new approach to implementing a successful digital archiving strategy. EVS, JVC Broadcast, Hitachi Broadcast and Desisti Lighting among others will also be conducting presentations along side the exhibition.

Mr Fahad said that the boom in the regional technology and media industry in the region, and the range of new business opportunities in the broadcast, communications and media technology fields and the sustained and healthy competition among pay TV, free-to-air channels have opened up an excess of new business avenues in the region.
