Micro-Ant will be in booth 2616, also at the IoT Westgate area.

Space IT Bridge Editor-in-Chief Doug Mohney will be onsite in Las Vegas from the afternoon of Saturday, January 4 through the afternoon of Wednesday, January 8.  He welcomes and encourages outreach from companies working with cubesat/small satellite technologies, IoT (Internet of Things), and broadband. 

He will be attending CES Unveiled on Sunday afternoon/evening, PEPCOM’s Digital Experience on Monday evening and ShowStoppers on Tuesday evening. 

Who won’t be there

No indications OneWeb or SpaceX Starlink will be there either exhibiting or speaking. To be fair, both companies are just starting launch campaigns and won’t have enough satellites in orbit to provision service to select geographic areas until mid to late 2020 at the earliest.
