"The biggest challenge for Inmarsat is budgets. In 2015, budgets will stay the same but we are looking to increase the number and the size of events, particularly our conferences, because the number of attendees is increasing.

"We launched a new satellite into space this year, with two more to follow next year. There will be launch events around these. Inmarsat's sponsorship of the Volvo Ocean Race is new, so we will be hosting events for partners at most of the ports featured in the race."

Shirin Dhala, head of events, Inmarsat
