GALA 2010 -
Tuesday, March 16
Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center
201 Waterfront Street, National Harbor, MD 20745
7:00 PM until 11:00 PM.
As you may know, SATELLITE 2010, sponsored by leading industry publication Via
Satellite and Access Intelligence, is moving to the new
Gaylord National Resort &
Harbor, along with Gala 2010. SSPI has made several
visits to the Gaylord and believes it will be an excellent venue for both events. The
property is conveniently located just minutes outside of Washington, D.C. and easily
accessible from the surrounding D.C. Metropolitan area. SATELLITE 2010 will be
providing regular shuttle service between the Gaylord and downtown hotels throughout
the conference week.
As a 501(c) 3 non-profit trade association sponsoring a widely attended event of
members, non-members and their guests, SSPI's Gala is a suitable event for
attendance under the ethics rules of the U.S. Government.
A note on Gala attire: Black Tie has long been the recommended attire for the Gala. To
better reflect changing tastes, Gala 2010 will be SSPI’s first “Black Tie Optional” Gala.
