The Space Foundation's Space Symposium builds international understanding by presenting perspectives from across the international space community through speakers, panelists, exhibits and special international programs. The Space Symposium attracts attendees from around the globe, including both official and unofficial delegations representing military, government and private space organizations.

We frequently interact with embassies and dignitaries and analyze and release information on international space developments. We also include extensive data and analysis of worldwide space activity in our publication, The Space Report: The Authoritative Guide to Global Space Activity.

We participate in a broad range of space-related events outside the U.S. through conference attendance, presentation of papers, exhibits, presentations and speeches. We also arrange delegations to visit and study other nations' space endeavors and host delegations visiting the United States.

Global Partners

The Space Foundation engages and promotes global cooperation among space-faring nations - and future space-faring nations. We frequently participate in international space forums and have a number of cooperative relationships with global space partners.
