UK Space Conference – 30 May to 1 June 2017
Held every two years, the UK Space Conference is the unmissable forum for the UK and international space community and a must attend event for organisations eager to expand into this growing sector. As the unrivalled networking platform, this is the key opportunity to establish new contacts, exchange information and improve your links with government, industry, academia, customers, suppliers, education providers, researchers and the financial community.

The two and a half day programme will present a compelling forum to discuss the changing political, economic and technological landscape impacting the UK space industry. It will review the UK’s strategy to capture a 10 per cent share of the global space market, which is forecast to be worth at least £400bn by 2030.

Building on the success of the 2015 conference, which attracted over 1,000 delegates and more than 100 exhibitors, the UK Space Conference 2017 will be even bigger and better.


UK Space Conference 2017 Objectives
The aim of the UK Space Conference 2017 is to be inclusive and forward looking:

• To bring together people and groups from within and outside the space community. 

• To exchange visions and ideas for using space, its technology and satellite enabled-services to shape our future.

• To discuss how new knowledge and space-based capabilities can drive social and economic progress into the 2030s and beyond.

Multiple plenary and parallel sessions with  informative and interactive presentations, workshops and debates will cover a wide range of topics and using feedback received from the last conference a new Programme Committee is developing an agenda that addresses the most pressing interests of this rapidly changing sector
