Thursday 9th March 2017 at OpTIC Technology Centre, St Asaph, North Wales, LL17 0JD


Conference and Exhibition from 9.30am to 1.30pm                   

Space Forum Meeting from 1.30pm to 3.30pm  

The Space Industry offers enormous potential to grow the economy. It’s not a niche industry but a fast growing, high tech, industrial and scientific sector.  The UK target is to grow the sector to achieve a 10% (£40 billion) share of the global space market by 2030.

This conference and exhibition will explore the supply chain and potential opportunities for your product or service in the space industry.  We will also explore how your company may benefit from space applications, data and services.  It will offer an opportunity to hear from industry and organisation leaders, network with like-minded people and exhibit your products or services. Our goal is to increase the number of suppliers to UK companies by highlighting opportunities available to companies large, small and start-up.

Who should attend?

Buyers and suppliers in, or wishing to enter the space industry:
