Written by: developer

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (March 12, 2013) – One of the main reasons to attend the Space Foundation’s 29th National Space Symposium is the dynamic Lockheed Martin Exhibit Center and Lockheed Martin Exhibit Center Pavilion, featuring the latest in space technology, products and services and the greatest number of international exhibits in Space Symposium history.

More than 160 space-related companies, educational institutions, associations and organizations will be on display for Space Symposium registrants, invited guests, uniformed military and select groups of teachers and students. The exhibit center is not open to the general public.

“Despite a challenging economy, our exhibit center has sold out,” said Space Foundation Chief Executive Officer Elliot Pulham. “A great deal of business is transacted at the Space Symposium and our exhibitors realize now, more than ever, they need visibility at the Space Symposium. We are grateful for their support.”

Scheduled for April 8-11 at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colo., the Space Symposium brings together all sectors of the global space community to highlight accomplishments and address opportunities and issues.
