Space Commercialisation 2018 @ Sydney - Venue TBA

Does the idea of integrating Space into your organisation seem far-fetched; a distant, science-fiction fantasy? Does using satellite data to boost industry capacity seem the sole preserve of futurists and dreamers?

As it turns out, the future is closer than you think, in fact, it is here now.

The Australian space industry backed federally by a recent infusion of $41 million through the Australian Space Agency and poised to grow from its current $3.59 Billion valuation to $10-12 billion by 2030.

With innovations such as nano-satellites, launch facilities and reusable vehicles in the works, the focus is now around what the commercial opportunities look like and how best to tailor these to the needs of the larger Australian economy.

As start-ups, VC funds, government organisations, defence contractors and industry users find their place in this puzzle, what direction must Australia’s space industry take from here?

Addressing this question, we bring to you Australia’s inaugural Space Commercialisation Summit taking place on the 27-28 November in Sydney.

By bridging multiple industry perspectives, this is your opportunity to influence the trajectory of the Australian space industry as well as learn about best-in-class use cases and technologies that propose to revolutionize traditional business as we know it.

• Jason Crusan, Director-Advanced Exploration Systems Division, NASA
