The Space Logistics Conference

The International Forum Dedicated to Services in Space for Space.

September 26-27, 2024 - Arlington, VA, United States

Your Opportunity To Shape The Future Of Services In Space For Space

The Space Logistics Industry is on track to generate $21 Billion by 2040, 20% of the total revenue of the space economy.

We have closely followed the progress of the field for three decades and it's clear the community is
standing on the precipice of a new era. The Space Logistics Conference is the only event which will bring together the vital stakeholders who are charting the future of the orbital ecosystem in one place, with a distinct focus on government policy, regulation and partnership opportunities that you will not find elsewhere.

This is your chance to connect with these leaders, learn about successes as well as challenges and shape the way ahead.

Orbital technology is going to radically alter the space environment. Satellites are going to be refuelled and repaired, or have their orbits shifted and access to space will be more reliable and affordable. A wide-ranging logistics architecture is going to be established to enable exploration from the Moon to Mars, as well as deeper into the solar system. Closer to Earth, a robust cargo transfer network is going to be vital for manufacturing cutting edge technology in orbit. These topics are the foundation of The Space Logistics Conference.

The countdown has started, join us on the launch pad of the future space economy
