International Summits

Uncensored discussion, unequaled intelligence

Euroconsult has established an outstanding reputation for creating and organizing summits and executive training programs.

Drawing on our expert knowledge and industry connections, we organize summits that bring together our international executive client base. The format always includes a top-level conference featuring senior executive speakers and delegates who meet to benchmark, exchange viewpoints on issues that the industry is facing and strike major deals. Summit venues are chosen to create a personal setting which lends itself to the networking and business meetings which are an integral part of each event.

World Satellite Business Week (since 1996) --

We are pleased to share with you some of the replays from the WSBW 2020 edition which was exceptionally held virtually from November 9-11.
The WSBW Virtual Edition provided our global network with a dedicated virtual platform to access, connect and hear from industry leaders through a series of virtual roundtables, interviews, and start-up pitches. We believe this format was the best way to give influential representatives of the industry a chance to safely attend the conference and reconnect in the midst of this unprecedent crisis brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.
