Space Industry's Elite Return to Bremen 27/09/2017
Renowned industry players billed to take the stage at Space Tech Expo Europe's free-to-attend conference

This October, people from all spheres of the space technology industry will gather in Bremen, Germany for Space Tech Expo Europe – an event that showcases the latest in aerospace and space excellence – and its free-to-attend forum sessions: the Industry and Technology Forums.

Taking place on 24-26 October, the forums run alongside the main exhibition, which is Europe's meeting place for space business, technology & innovation. It draws attendance from thousands of industry leaders, decision makers, engineers, buyers and manufacturers, and innovations for civil, military and commercial space applications will be on display.

The Industry Forum and Technology Forum both boast a three-day programme bursting to the seams with keynote sessions, panels and audience-interactive discussions. Key talking points at the Industry Forum 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; 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.

Meanwhile, 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 utilised in future space applications; how digitisation 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 unmissable 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 organisations 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. View the full agendas for both the Industry Forum and the Technology Forum now, and secure your free pass to be part of Europe’s biggest dedicated space technology trade fair and conference.
