A strategic gathering of global space industry leaders, GSC will bring together more than 700 key space agencies, commercial space companies, academia, and end users of space services to evaluate the biggest opportunities in the space sector. The gathering will also showcase new applications for space technology that will have a practical and lasting impact on the development of the space sector in the Middle East and globally. Its goal is to enable leaders to focus on collaboration and core space and satellite technology strategies, yielding global and regional economic benefits.

The GSC’s exhibition hall will feature national pavilions and displays from space agencies showcasing innovative, cost-effective strategies for reaching and utilizing space. The Start-Up Zone will include quick-fire pitching sessions for innovators and technology developers to connect with venture capitalists. A full day Young Space Leaders Forum with inspirational role models from the international space scene and future leaders of the Emirati space program is also on the agenda.
