Space Applications Fueling Business Innovation

A new space race has begun and business executives looking for a competitive advantage will have an incredible head start. This race is to accelerate expansion of a new ecosystem — the application of space technology to fuel business innovation and new market opportunities.

On November 17-19, 2015, SpaceCom — the Space Commerce Conference and Exposition — will host a dynamic three-day event engineered to fuel business innovation across the medical, energy, transportation, communications and advanced manufacturing industries.

Produced in collaboration with NASA Johnson Space Center, Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau (GHCVB), Houston First Corporation, and National Trade Productions (NTP), SpaceCom will be a catalyst for innovation and growth in the commercial development of space and is specifically engineered to:

  • Highlight ways space technologies cut across five target industries (medical, energy, transportation, communications and advanced manufacturing)
  • Showcase examples of how business can exploit LEO and suborbital environments
  • Accelerate the usage of the International Space Station National Laboratory
  • Demonstrate why fostering close collaboration, partnerships and co-development on an international scale is so crucial
  • Offer insights into the who and how to raise money for new ventures
  • Provide existing space companies access to new customers

“The SpaceCom conference program encompasses three days of interactive content outlining the new space race, market growth in this new environment and financing innovation to take advantage of emerging opportunities,” said James Causey, executive director of SpaceCom. “We’ve united experts from across leading industries to truly bring to life how the application of space technologies is fueling business innovation. Their visionary perspectives will give attendees great tips for forging their own road maps for space commercialization success.”

SpaceCom keynote speakers include:
