About BSN Group

The Broadcast & Satellite Network UK (BSN) is an informal networking group for the broadcast and satellite industry in the UK, managed by a small group of industry stalwarts who organise a series of regular networking events for its membership.  Our aim is to bring together and foster understanding among professionals working within the broadcast and satellite industry in the UK and students and young professionals aspiring to work within these industries. We are keen to promote knowledge sharing, educational activities and social networking opportunities for our members. As you are aware, we work in a very dynamic technologically driven industry, and it's critical to our careers and professional development that we all keep as up-to-date as possible. The BSN aims to hold events that will appeal to the widest audience with relevant topics and interesting speakers, hosted by major industry players, with plenty of time set aside for networking.

Since its inception in 2006, the BSN has organised on average 3 to 4 meetings per year, welcoming over 1,000 participants over our first decade.  Topics of discussion have included, satellite insurance, satellite systems, modulation and coding techniques, content management amongst other similarly interesting topics. Events are often hosted by some of the world’s leading industry organisations, such as Intelsat, SES, Inmarsat, Marsh, ETL, Newtec, Avanti, Field Fisher Waterhouse, Bird & Bird, sjberwin, GVF, Arqiva and Ofcom … to name but a few.

One of the BSN’s most anticipated annual events is our Open Mike Evening where our Members provide the subject matter for discussion and it's always a lively event! And the real blessing is that the rules include “no PowerPoints”; just come and share your thoughts – we’d love to hear them. In fact, the BSN kicked off its second decade with a very informative and energetic Open Mike evening at the Yorkshire Grey, pub in Theobolds Road, London, last November and in February of this year we were hosted by Inmarsat, City Road, London to hear an update on the Global Express network currently being rolled out. On 10th May, we have been invited to receive a briefing from one of the world’s major equipment and end-to-end enterprise solutions companies – Kratos and later in the year we are working on a networking event centred on the licensing aspects of the industry – in many cases, as important as the technological issues we face.

Professional level membership costs less than the equivalent of 4 cups of coffee from your favourite high street barista for a whole year - and if you're a student or retired, membership is free. BSN events can only be attended by members.

Our website can be found here and we are on LinkedIn and Facebook.
