Space Tech Expo Europe to Host Leading Space Industry Players under One Roof

The 2017 Space Tech Expo Europe is being hosted in Bremen, Germany from 24 - 26 October. The event will bring together people from all spheres of the space technology industry under one roof to showcase the latest in aerospace excellence along with a number of forum sessions. 

Taking place from October 24 – 26, the event showcases the latest in aerospace excellence along with hosting free-to-attend forum sessions: the Industry Forum and Technology Forum.

The Industry Forum and Technology Forum will run alongside the main exhibition, which is Europe’s premier event for spacecraft, satellite, launch vehicle and space-related technologies. It draws attendance from thousands of industry leaders, decision makers, engineers, buyers and manufacturers. Both forums boast a three-day programme bursting to the seams with keynote sessions, panels and audience-interactive discussions.

Key talking points at the Industry Forum will include understanding the benefits and overcoming the challenges of increased collaboration among international space agencies; how software and HTS are meeting the demands of the insatiable communications and mobile market; identifying and addressing the gaps in space traffic management policy; expanding commercial enterprise in space; and whether reusability or cost-efficient design will take off in Europe. The agenda is brimming with names from some of the sector’s most renowned companies while featured speakers include ESA’s Professor Dr.-Ing Johann-Dietrich Wörner, SES’s Martin Halliwell, DLR’s Professor Dr. Pascale Ehrenfreund and OHB’s Guy Perez.

Presentations at the Technology Forum will explore major technological innovations and breakthroughs, including the leaps forward in electric propulsion; the importance of additive manufacturing and how it is best utilized in future space applications; how digitization improves supply chain, engineering, testing and operations processes; new engineering approaches through augmented reality; and the latest developments in thermal management, electronics and avionics. Well-respected and prominent speakers billed to take the stage include OHB’s Egbert Jan van der Veen, Airbus Defence and Space’s Katherine Pegg, Glenair’s Roland T Logan Jr and Curtiss-Wright’s Dave Lowney.

The free-to-attend forums mark an important date in the calendar for anyone working in or connected to the space technology sector. The keynote sessions on the opening morning will see politicians and decision-makers from leading European space agencies and major organizations share their perspectives on the future of the European space industry. Attendees will gain a unique insight into the launcher, satellite manufacturing and space exploration industries and learn how SMEs and start-up companies are securing their positions within the European space industry.

As well as hearing from industry trailblazers, the forums also offer the unparalleled opportunity to meet with hundreds of potential partners and suppliers under one roof and view thousands of products on the exhibition floor. Vast in scope, not only do the forums delve into core industry developments and tackle prominent issues, they also cover the most compelling elements from space technology sub-sectors, broad and niche.
