“Microspace has orchestrated an international success with the direct-link delivery of an innovative digital signage campaign from the US to Europe over the SES WORLD SKIES fleet,” said Andrew Ruszkowski, Vice President of Enterprise Solutions for SES WORLD SKIES. “Powerful digital imagery is a universal language and just one of many ways we’re working with Microspace to move audiences, impact consumers and help a wide range of companies build their businesses around the world.”
