30th Space Symposium Breaks All Records with 11,000 Participants

Written by: developer

The 30th Space Symposium, held May 19-22, 2014, at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, set new records for participation, cementing the event’s place as both the largest annual gathering of the space community anywhere in the world, and the largest annual citywide convention in Colorado Springs.

The Space Foundation reported that some 11,000 people participated in the 30th Space Symposium. Included in that number are 8,000 delegates and guests, and 3,000 vendors, volunteers and support staff. The numbers include representatives of more than 600 participating companies and organizations from 26 countries.

The Space Foundation has held the Space Symposium at The Broadmoor every year since 1984, and the 31st Space Symposium is scheduled there for April 13-16, 2015.
