Glasgow to welcome latest Space-Comm conference

Registration for the inaugural Space-Comm Expo Scotland is now open. Space-Comm Expo, organised and owned by Hub Exhibitions, is the leading international space conference. This is the first time the Expo will come to Scotland, taking place September 11-12 at the SEC Glasgow.

The first Space-Comm Expo Scotland is the new catalyst for one of the world's leading space nations at the forefront of the UK’s global space ambitions. The Scottish space industry is one of the fastest growing in Europe, home to over 150 space companies employing over 8,000 people in high quality jobs.

Glasgow designs and builds more small satellites than anywhere outside of California and is home to five spaceports aiming to be a strategic launchpad for the northern hemisphere with multiple launch vehicle operators.

A host of headline speakers are already confirmed for the event. Over 3,000 attendees are expected over the two days, discovering new technologies, innovations and applications from over 75 suppliers, representing the whole supply chain.

The programme includes 60 speakers, 450 one-to-one meetings and 20 hours of free-to-attend conference sessions. The audience profile is not only space industry professionals but those from downstream sectors such as Fintech, Agritech, Maritime and Energy, with an interest in space applications.

Space-Comm Expo Scotland is supported by the Scottish Government, UK Space Agency, UKspace and Space Scotland, with plans to attract international delegations and visitors from across Europe and the global space community, alongside Primes, SMEs and Start-Ups.

Professor Anu Ojha OBE, director of championing space at the UK Space Agency, said: “Events like Space-Comm Expo Scotland play a vital role in bringing together the people and businesses who will write the next chapter in the growth story of Scotland’s space sector. Glasgow is a global hub for small satellite manufacturing and data applications, while companies and universities across Scotland are playing major roles in some of the most complex and important space missions, supporting thousands of jobs.

“There are huge opportunities to build on these successes, as we countdown to the first launches from Scottish spaceports, catalyse investment from all over the world, and deliver new space missions and capabilities that benefit the whole of the UK.”
