We Still Have Room For You at Space Symposium!
August 23-26, 2021

Year after year, the Space Symposium keeps up its reputation as the “must attend” space industry event.
Come see what everyone’s talking about.

Thank you for your inquiry about attending the 36th Space Symposium.

Unfortunately, in-person registrations for this year’s program are SOLD OUT.

Persons still wanting to participate in the 36th Space Symposium can still get access all of this year’s programing through our Virtual Experience.

Because of venue capacity restrictions, we have limited in-person tickets available. We encourage all those individuals that want to participate to register for our Virtual Experience.

The 36th Space Symposium virtual components provide:

  • Access live 36th Space Symposium presentations, speakers and panels;
  • Connect to exclusive virtual/on-demand content (e.g., interviews, panels and presentations);
  • Engage with the sponsors and exhibitors showcased at our Lockheed Martin Exhibit Center; and,
  • Network with peers and experts across the space community.

We are not providing any exception or waitlist for in-person registration and hope you will join us virtually for this year’s program.

Bring your masks to the 36th Space Symposium

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now recommending that all individuals wear a mask indoors in public, in areas of substantial or high transmission levels, to maximize protection and prevent spreading to others. In consultation with our government and industry stakeholders, Space Foundation is currently directing that all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks at indoor settings that are part of the 36th Space Symposium.

We will continue monitoring reports and guidance from the CDC, Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, and the El Paso County Department of Public Health and assess potential changes to this policy. The health and safety of all Space Symposium participants and our team, remains of the utmost importance to us. As the event date approaches, please check here for the latest updates.

The premier event for global space professionals.

Space Symposium attendees consistently represent all sectors of the space community from multiple spacefaring nations: space agencies; commercial space businesses and associated subcontractors; military, national security and intelligence organizations; cyber security organizations; federal and state government agencies and organizations; research and development facilities; think tanks; educational institutions; space entrepreneurs and private space travel providers; businesses engaged in adapting, manufacturing or selling space technologies for commercial use; and media that inspire and educate the general public about space.

Bringing all these groups together in one place provides a unique opportunity to examine space issues from multiple perspectives, to promote dialog and to focus attention to critical space issues.

For the first time in our nearly 40 years of gathering the world’s space community, the annual Space Symposium set for August 23-26, 2021, at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado, will be a hybrid in-person/virtual program. Assembling in-person attendees and virtual audience members from around the world, the 36th Space Symposium will expand and diversify access, engagement and understanding of the happenings of the global space community like never before.

Registrants for the hybrid program will be able to see, hear and engage with the presentations, panels, awards and programming that will unfold at this year’s program. Building connections and understanding have always been the dividends of attending Space Symposium, and those are rewards that Space Foundation wants to extend beyond those participants who join us in-person in Colorado Springs.
