Top 5 Reasons to Attend the 25th National Space Symposium: Networking Reason # 1: “There is so much information given here . . . so many great people you can meet . . . if you didn’t come to the Symposium you would be behind.”

Let’s face it, oftentimes the greatest impact of an industry conference lies not within the formal sessions of the agenda, but within the opportunity to meet and talk with industry leaders, to catch up with current and potential customers and suppliers, or to have the time to germinate ideas or seal deals too long in the making. In addition to a superlative agenda featuring many of the world’s foremost space experts, the 25th National Space Symposium also offers ample opportunity to network.

Starting with the opening night reception and late-night post-fireworks reception, on through to the capstone Space Technology Hall of Fame Dinner, the 25th National Space Symposium offers formal opportunities at receptions, luncheons and dinners. Informal opportunities abound in the extensive Boeing Exhibit Centers and across the luxurious and very business-friendly Broadmoor facilities. Plus, the Symposium offers the most important ingredient to successful and productive networking: everyone who is anyone in the space industry will be there. Just listen to some of our former attendees:

“You can get more things done in a mere couple days than you would otherwise in a few months or more.”

“This is where all the action is.”
