Written by: Space Foundation Editorial Team

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Sep. 7, 2004) — Only a few days remain to register for Strategic Space 2004 and still enjoy an advanced purchase price that would save $145 off the industry rate and $150 from the government rate. The reduced rates are available through Friday, 10 September. Scheduled for 5-7 October at Omaha’s Qwest Convention Center and Arena, Strategic Space participants will hear from many national security space luminaries and key industry leaders who have already confirmed their participation to make this even bigger and better than last year’s sold-out event.

Both the $600 industry and $350 government registration rates include admission to general sessions, more than 8,000-sq. ft. of exhibits, two breakfasts, several receptions and one ticket to each dining event: a networking luncheon and dessert, exhibit hall buffet luncheon, and closing dinner.

To take advantage of the special advance purchase rate, register at or call the Space Foundation at 1-800-691-4000. A comprehensive speaker list, program agenda, sponsors and exhibitors also are available on the conference Web site.
