NewSpace 2018 Conference Preview – Democratizing Access to Space
June 26 - June 28$5
About the Event
It’s time to get excited about summer and space in Seattle! The NewSpace Conference is returning to Seattle on June 26-28, and we’re excited to bring you this preview of what’s to come at the conference.
We welcome panelists Rob Hoyt of Tethers Unlimited, Christopher Richins of RBC Signals, former Astronaut Soyeon Yi of Loft Orbital, and Phil Brytza of SpaceFlight Industries to discuss how companies in Seattle and beyond are working to open space to more and more people. In this panel moderated by Sean McClinton of the Space Entrepreneurs, we’ll talk about the growth and diversity of opportunities in space for people of all walks of life.
Join us for an evening of conversation and networking at the beautiful new ThinkSpace location on Lake Union, with a waterfront view of where Bill Boeing once started a small seaplane company in hopes of becoming a player in the budding aviation industry. Enjoy free light appetizers and drinks for purchase while meeting industry influencers right here in Seattle. Special discount codes for the NewSpace Conference will be distributed to attendees.
