Written by: developer

Symposium Gets High Marks In a recent survey, more than 90 percent of repeat attendees rated the 26th National Space Symposium as good as or better than previous National Space Symposia they had attended, with the majority rating it better

And, 82 percent of those who had attended other conferences in the past year rated the Space Foundation’s 26th National Space Symposium better than the others.

The April 12-15 event, which was held in Colorado Springs, Colo., is covered in this and the May issue of Space Watch. 

Attendees who rated various components of the event ranked them in this order, with the postive rankings ranging from 97.5 percent to 81 percent:

  • Customer Service
  • Exhibits
  • The Broadmoor Hotel
  • Colorado Springs as a Destination
  • Agenda
  • Speakers
  • Overall Value

The survey confirmed that the top reason a record number of people attended was the opportunity network, followed by the extraordinary agenda and speakers.

About two-thirds of the respondents had attended previous National Space Symposia. The 27th National Space Symposium will held April 11-14 at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs.
