Panel Discussion / Roundtable

SPACE... It is a fascinating frontier that has been generating a lot more interest over the last few years.

SpaceX, Virgin Galactic, Blue Origin, Orbital, Sierra Nevada Corporation, and other private space companies have been developing new technologies to support commercial and government needs. The test launches of Falcon and other reusable rockets have captured the imagination of millions of Americans.

Recently, Vice President Pence made a famous speech wherein he discussed the need for a Space Force.

And while all of these events have been taking place, the NASA continues its exciting mission of exploration, while at the same time, facing growing concern over its dependency on Russia for servicing the Space Station.

No matter where you look, America's missions into SPACE are growing.

The panel will discuss some of the data that makes Space important for government contractors, as well as how expansive the opportunities are for small and mid-sized businesses - many of whom do not realize how their technologies and services can help support space missions.

We also will reveal some of the speakers we have lined up for this conference, and preview how the event, scheduled for January 2019, will unfold.
