Presented by the Space Frontier Foundation and the Ministry of the Economy of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg, the NewSpace Europe conference will center around the theme "New Frontiers of Opportunity", focusing on the exponential growth of the space ecosystem and its economic opportunities.

This two-day event and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will take place on November 16th and 17th at the European Convention Center Luxembourg (ECCL) in Luxembourg City and will welcome speakers including Gwynne Shotwell (Chief Operating Officer, Space X), Johann-Dietrich Wörner (Director of ESA), Pete Worden (Executive Director of Breakthrough Initiatives) and Takeshi Hakamada (Founder & CEO of ispace) who will all share their expertise and explore future trends and opportunities offered by the New Space Industry.

 

NewSpace Europe will then bring together during two days the global space industry environment composed of leaders from startups, established companies, governmental entities, investors and tech innovators in order to create an interaction between the speakers.

 

Mr Etienne Schneider, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Economy of Luxembourg, will give the opening speech preceding conferences on many topics such as the inhabitation on the moon, space investment and European space startups.

About the Space Frontier Foundation

 

The Space Frontier Foundation hosts the annual NewSpace Conference, the largest and longest running conference devoted to commercial space in the United States.

It is a 501(c)3 non-profit committed to realizing the vision of a greatly expanded and permanent human presence in space. The Foundation functions like a city Chamber of Commerce for the space industry, interfacing between smaller private entities, government and larger industry giants, as well as encouraging and supporting collaboration between them. The Foundation believes that privatizing space exploration will lead to faster innovation and progress, smarter financial decisions and job creation, and that the public and private sectors must work together with the former incentivizing the latter. The power of free enterprise will be the catalyst to generate the necessary technologies for humans to live and work in space and sustain a healthy, thriving space economy.
