Despite One of Their More Turbulent Years, SSPI's Nominations for the 2020 Better Satellite World Awards Begin


The official opening for nominations for the 2020 Better Satellite World Awards by Space & Satellite Professionals International (SSPI) was announced. The winners will be honored at the Better Satellite World Awards Dinner on December 7, in London. Nominations are due by  September 14, 2020.

The tradition has been that every year, during the Better Satellite World Awards Dinner, SSPI honors three organizations or individuals who have demonstrated the use of satellite to make a significant contribution to human welfare, good governance, safety, peace and security, improved education or other measures of human achievement. The Better Satellite World Awards are produced by SSPI and its UK and Isle of Man Chapters. Click here to learn more about the awards and past winners.


SSPI Director of Development and Innovation Louis Zacharilla said that the space and satellite industry has had an historic year and has been central to the history being made in 2020. As always, their industry has assisted many industries as well as the public sectors in their attempt to keep civil society healthy, communicating properly and focused on a better world ahead. They look forward to seeing who their Jury and SSPI’s UK Chapter selects as their stellar representatives for one of their more turbulent years.

Nomination forms are available on SSPI’s website.
