Connecting the international space economy

 Europe's meeting place for space technology

The free-to-attend Conferences at Space Tech Expo Europe are back for 2021– and they are bolder than ever. Join us on November 16-18 in Bremen, Germany, for a three-day jam-packed agenda which will take you on a flight through the latest developments in the (European) space industry, bringing together high-level industry experts from space agencies, prime integrators, New Space start-ups and suppliers.

The Industry and Smallsats Conferences will provide critical insights from agency developments, through to funding, technology innovation, launch, on-orbit servicing, in-space infrastructure development and so much more. Running alongside Europe’s largest B2B space tech event, the Space Tech Expo Europe Conferences are not to be missed.
