LaunchUK: Spaceflight Event

18th July 18 @ 09:30 AM to 12:30 PM Innovate 1

Discover the future of access to space from UK spaceports at this exclusive event within the Farnborough International Airshow

The countdown has begun for commercial space launch from UK spaceports. The space industry is developing new launch services and spaceports, taking advantage of growing demand for small satellite launch and opportunities for sub-orbital science and tourist flights. To support this emerging sector, the Government has announced a £50m spaceflight programme, put in place the Space Industry Act and is developing a world-leading regulatory structure, which will make the UK a globally attractive destination to start and grow a space business.

To learn more and explore how government and industry can jointly take advantage of this exciting opportunity, please join us on Wednesday the 18th of July for Spaceflight Day at Farnborough International Airshow.

This event is free to attend for all visitors to the Airshow and advanced booking is essential. Delegates can also attend a networking reception that will follow the event on the UK Space Agency stand.
