You can also bid on a chance to win some of the other fascinating Space Technology products on display. Bids will be accepted beginning April 11 through the online and mobile auction tool

Get Amazing Free Stuff at Space Foundation Booth 1204
There is a lot you won’t want to miss at the 32nd Space Symposium, including Space Foundation booth 1204, located in the Lockheed Martin Exhibit Center Pavilion. Learn about the Space Foundation, the nonprofit organization that organizes the premier Space Symposium event, educates children around the world about the importance of space and launches countless public outreach initiatives throughout the year.

The 32nd Space Symposium app will feature a scavenger hunt with a special prize to be redeemed only at the Space Foundation booth. Complete the hunt quickly, because the number of prizes is limited. Virtual reality glasses will also be available at the booth and will transport users from Colorado Springs to out-of-this-world destinations!

The Space Report at Booth 1204
Presentations and short demos will be available throughout the week to teach attendees about The Space Report Online. Attendees will receive a one-time free 24-hour access to The Space Report Online and the professionals at the booth will be showing shortcuts and best practices for optimizing this online tool.

The Space Report Online demo times at booth 1204 will be: Monday 7:30-9:00 p.m.; Tuesday 3:15-3:45 p.m. and 6:00-7:00 p.m.; Wednesday 11:45 a.m.-12:15 p.m. and 3:15-3:45 p.m.; Thursday 10:15-10:45 a.m. and 2:30-3:00 p.m.

When you arrive at the booth, be sure to utilize the Space Symposium app and receive an achievement badge and points to help you achieve leader status on the app!

Information will be available on the Space Foundation education programs and the Space Technology & Investment Forum, taking place in San Francisco this August. The booth will also feature free commemorative 32nd Space Symposium posters.

Be sure to download the Space Symposium app in the Apple Store or Google Play and stay up to date with happenings at Space Foundation booth 1204 and throughout the Symposium! The new interactive map found on the app will be sure to guide you directly to the booth and the can’t miss sessions and meals.
