AidEx Brussels

AidEx is the leading international event dedicated to the unique needs of development and aid professionals across the world; held over two days annually at Brussels Expo, in Belgium.

AidEx is recognised as a major platform for networking, making new contacts and doing business. By taking part, you will forge new relationships in the community, raise awareness of your organisation and be involved in the sourcing of new solutions to improve the efficiency of aid delivery.


AidEx Africa

Now in it's fourth year, AidEx Africa is a two-day high-profile conference which takes place annually in Nairobi, Kenya. AidEx Africa was developed as a satellite event to the already well-established AidEx conference and exhibition for humanitarian and development aid, held each year in Brussels.

AidEx Africa attracts over 300 delegates from the Government of Kenya, UN agencies, Kenyan Red Cross and leading NGOs from Africa and beyond.

NSSLGlobal is an independent service provider of satellite communications and IT support, committed to delivering high quality data and voice services to customers anywhere in the world – regardless of location. They will be exhibiting at AIDEX 2016 on stand D80/B.

Communities which are unconnected from the internet or even traditional telephony suffer more than we often realise. Not only are they often shut off from the wider world, the world is cut off from them. This means our understanding of such communities, and the challenges they may be facing, remains unknown.

As a satellite technology provider, NSSLGlobal makes the biggest impact in areas where traditional forms of communication are not available: disaster zones and in remote communities. To help tackle the isolation of such areas, NSSLGlobal has established a partnership with Survival International, an organisation at the forefront of the global movement for the rights of tribal people.

The goal of the partnership was to give the Amazonian Yanomami tribe a voice and bring to light the struggles they face from deforestation, mining and land theft. NSSLGlobal provided Survival International with the necessary satellite communication and IT equipment, as well as the necessary training for NGO members and tribespeople on how to use it, and ongoing technical support. The result? Helping an oft-misrepresented group of people a way to stand up for their rights and giving them a means to tell the world about the detrimental impact of illegal deforestation, construction and industrial activity.

This is just one of countless examples of the benefit of utilising satellite technology to keep remote communities connected. NSSLGlobal has also worked with a remote medical facility in Haiti, to connect doctors and staff with fellow healthcare professionals elsewhere in the world, allowing them to benefit from wider support, as well as staying in touch with their families. With renewed infrastructure and equipment, it becomes clear that being far away doesn’t have to mean being cut off from either work or home.
