CABSAT 2020 Postponed Due to Coronavirus, Rescheduled for October
CABSAT 2020 has been postponed and will now be held from October 26 to 28. The MEASA event for content creation, production & broadcast and satellite & distribution had been set to take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from March 31 to April 2. CABSAT’s full statement is below.
In light of the evolving global developments around the COVID-19 virus, Dubai World Trade Centre has been closely monitoring the situation, particularly as it pertains to our key stakeholders and participating delegations from around the world across all our upcoming shows.
Whilst the UAE remains completely safe for travel, and has deployed the strictest medical and hygiene protocols, we fully recognise that for some specific shows, we have a high majority of key participants significant to the event’s programme that are unable to travel due to restrictions in their home countries. As such, we have been working closely to assure that our clients’ needs are most effectively addressed, and the delivery of strong international participation considered, in these extraordinary times.
Bearing this context, CABSAT, the Middle East & Africa’s leading event for content creation, production & broadcast and satellite & distribution is being postponed from 31 March – 2 April to 26 – 28 October 2020.
Our decision comes after much deliberation in consultation with the event’s main participants and industry stakeholders, who have strongly endorsed our prioritisation of the collective interests of both the global exhibitors and the key buyers from the region. With the event now rescheduled to 26-28 October 2020, CABSAT shall facilitate greater participation across our global communities, enabling more inclusive access for all.
