A departure from traditional testing

Establishing safe performance through testing and demonstrations is critical to enable mission-readiness. As air space opens up, demand for testing environments increases in kind, and companies are tasked with evolving their breadth and depth of knowledge in line with a rapidly changing industry in which restrictions and regulations will develop. Space Tech Expo USA addresses industry-wide needs, concerns, and demands in an event that covers everything from environmental testing, to data acquisition.

Capitalize on the thousands of satellites forecast to be launched within the next few years by meeting face-to-face with industry players and showcasing your services direct to thousands of prospective customers at Space Tech Expo USA.

Space Tech Expo 2018 generated more than 6,700 leads. In 2019, we anticipate 4,000 engineers, executives, decision makers, and manufacturers to attend, and 300 leading manufacturers and suppliers to exhibit.

Why attend?

Hear the latest relevant industry forecasts. For example, the global non-destructive testing (NDT) market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 6.2% to 2025, increasing significantly from its 2017 value of $13.51 billion.


  •  Stay informed of the latest developments – ultrasonic testing is poised to register a considerable growth rate, with radiographic testing not far behind.
  • Explore innovations in NDT techniques – a much-needed requirement for high-value systems and components, including surface techniques – such as penetrant testing, which is used to identify surface defects, and sub-surface techniques, including radiography and ultrasonic testing.
  •  Get to grips with the latest developments in means to locate voids, cracks, and laminations, and approaches to inspect welds and carry out thickness measurements, as well as general NDTs rising in popularity, such as eddy current testing.
  •  Discuss the pros and cons of new testing methods showing increasing promise within the aerospace industry, such as pulsed thermography and techniques based on resonant frequency response.
  •  Discover the latest in metrology, with new innovations being brought to market that suit a range of components in hard-to-access areas.
  • Find suppliers and customers for data recording, structural dynamics, and rotating machinery analysis; attendees at the expo cover the entire spectrum of data acquisition needs and services.
  • Learn about the latest global contracts for major space testing equipment, which are contributing to rapid growth for major space-industry facilities around the world.
  • Discover the latest in electrical testing and monitoring solutions for space vehicles and satellites to optimize lifetime value.


Join us as an exhibitor: Space Tech Expo USA represents the world’s biggest meeting point for customers seeking a huge range of testing solutions. Maximize your leads and sow seeds for future harvest among thousands of industry professionals.
