Ball Aerospace Exhibit Center, New Pavilion An Overwhelming Success

Provided Excitement, Networking Opportunities, Inspiration

The Space Foundation's National Space Symposium is known as the single annual event where exhibitors can reach all of their customers in one place. In 2012, the Ball Aerospace Exhibit Center was the biggest and most exciting in Space Symposium history.

The main hall of the Ball Aerospace Exhibit Center held the largest displays, most from long-time Space Foundation corporate members and co-sponsors.

The new Ball Aerspace Exhibit Center Pavilion at The Broadmoor Hotel was a fantastic addition to the exhibit space, with 100 of the total 166 exhibitors housed there. And response from exhibitors was overwhelmingly positive. The Pavilion was also the location for the annual Space Foundation Student Art contest display and a series of book signings by such authors as Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, P.J. O'Rourke and Mark Stevenson. The art contest display won a top award from the Colorado American Marketing Association.

Of the 166 Space Symposium exhibitors, 42 were new for 2012 and of those, six companies have already signed up to exhibit for the 29th National Space Symposium, to be held April 8-11, 2013, at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colo.
