Since 1985, the World Teleport Association (WTA) has been the only trade association that focuses on the business of satellite communications from the ground up. At the core of its membership are the world's most innovative operators of teleports, from independents to multinationals, niche service providers to global hybrid carriers.
For Teleport Operators
WTA is dedicated to helping the operators of teleports maintain and expand their businesses by:
Advocating for their Interests
In an industry undergoing fast changes in technology, operations and business models, WTA works with members to identify the issues most critical to their success and advocates on their behalf. We provide a unified and respected voice when it comes to relationships with strategic partners in the sky and on the ground, and the evolution of technology and applications. We educate partners and customers on the tremendous value that teleports bring to the global contribution and distribution chain for video, audio, data, and voice.
Promoting Excellence in Business Practice, Technology and Operations
Through original research, case studies and white papers, WTA provides valuable market data, promotes the achievements of the industry's leaders and explores the issues that matter most to the teleport sector.
Promoting the Vital Role of Teleports
WTA also provides its members with access to business opportunities around the world through detailed profiles in the Marketplace, a search able online directory of providers. By placing them as speakers and panelists at industry gatherings –and pro viding discounts on registration for their employees – we provide exposure to an international audience of potential customers. We guide them to potential customers and strategic allies within our membership and open the door for them with personal introductions.
