In this talk I will show how the asymptotic initial value problem for the conformal Einstein field equations, whereby one prescribes initial data on a spacelike hypersurface representing the conformal boundary, can be used to study various conformal aspects of the Schwarzschild-de Sitter spacetime. The analysis presented covers the subextremal, extremal and hyperextremal cases. The implications of this analysis for the study of nonlinear perturbations of members of the Schwarzschild-de Sitter family of spacetimes are discussed.
