SpaceCom: Space Commerce Launching Business Innovation and Opportunities

Space Commerce Conference and Exposition (SpaceCom) will welcome commercial space and technology representatives at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston TX on November 17-19. Space commerce, dubbed as “The New Space Race”, is expected to support profits in manufacturing, energy, communications, medical and transportation markets. According to The Space Foundation 2014 Space Report, 76% of global space activity is commercially-funded space products and services, and investment in private ventures from 2010 to the end of 2015 is on track to reach $10 billion (NewSpace Global). International efforts are building toward reducing launch and payload costs, developing advanced spaceports and improving space policies. Keynotes will be given by (pictured clockwise) Charles Bolden (NASA), George Whitesides (Virgin Galactic), Stuart Martin (Satellite Applications Catapult), Yuri Sebregts, (Royal Dutch Shell), and Chris Impey (University of Arizona). There will be over 75 speakers and 70 exhibitors, Core Concept Working Groups, Industry Roundtables, Innovation Theater Presentations, Industry Center VIP Meet & Greets, a display of the JSC Modular Robotic Vehicle & Destination Station, book signings, student art and a tour of NASA JSC.
