The launch of Space Tech Expo in Europe in 2015 gave the European space industry a focused marketplace for the design, manufacturing and testing of spacecraft, satellite, launch vehicle and space-related technologies.
Over three days Space Tech Expo Europe and Aerospace Electrical Systems Expo, organised by UK-based Smarter Shows, attracted over 2,600 attendees from 50 countries. More than 200 exhibiting companies showcased the latest technologies within the space manufacturing supply chain, including components, systems, subsystems, testing and products and solutions on display across upwards of 6,000m of exhibit floor space. With the European event taking place every two years, plans of growth for the 2017 edition are already in motion, supported by key participation from major players OHB and Thales-Alenia.
Space Tech Expo & Conference Europe 2017 brings together engineering representatives, executive management and global decision makers from companies, as well as government and military institutions, involved in space industry activities. Strategically positioned in central Europe in a city of aerospace excellence, Space Tech Expo Europe becomes the continent’s major dedicated supply-chain and engineering event for complete spacecraft, sub-systems and space qualified components.
With a five-year history of growing into the premier space event on the West Coast of the US and one of the largest industry gatherings in the world, the opportunity to expand into Europe signals an intent to develop international co-operation and business investment in the sector.
Why Bremen, Germany?
Northern Germany has a long history of aerospace and space industry excellence, and a deep-rooted connection with an array of European centres of excellence. Convenient access served by modern road and rail networks and with an airport just 6km from the Bremen Messe, connectivity in conjunction with a backdrop of technical excellence is key in the selection of Bremen as the inaugural host of Space Tech Expo Europe.
This is an especially exciting time for European manufacturers of space vehicles, systems and components. New opportunities are increasingly evolving for the private sector. New market prospects and improved industry efficiency are enhancing companies’ ability to compete in the commercial space arena and commercial applications of defence products.
