Space Symposium is the premier assembly for the global space ecosystem, hosted by Space Foundation since 1984. Space Symposium is held at The Broadmoor and Cheyenne Mountain Resorts in Colorado Springs, and is widely attended by leaders from around the world from government, industry, military, intelligence, research, and investment communities. This year’s 39th Space Symposium will enable its thousands of global attendees to seamlessly engage and conduct business both in-person and virtually via the Symposium 365 Digital Platform.
Space Foundation will convene the world’s space community in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA April 8-11, 2024, at The Broadmoor and Cheyenne Mountain Resort.
Space Symposium is both in-person and virtual, as there will be the traditional in-person programming and exhibits, as well as virtual accessibility allowing persons unable to travel to access the same information and presentations offered to our in-person attendees. This hybrid program model will allow Space Foundation to engage more of the global space ecosystem than ever before.
Held within two state of the art exhibit centers and around the grounds of The Broadmoor, more than 200 booths/exhibits will be on display at the 39th Space Symposium.

Space Foundation reserves the right to refuse entrance due to inappropriate attire. Comfortable shoes are recommended.
Colorado Springs’ high elevation of over 6,000 feet will affect visitors in different ways. When staying in Colorado Springs, it may take your body a couple of days to adjust to the high altitude. At this elevation, the air is thinner, and you may become tired faster during physical activity. Colorado Springs’ high desert climate also causes people to dehydrate faster. It is important to drink a lot of water to keep your body hydrated; this is the easiest way to avoid altitude sickness. If you plan to visit any of our excellent restaurants or bars while in town, you should be aware that alcohol may affect your body faster at higher elevations. Also, sunscreen is vital while traveling in Colorado Springs. Whether it is sunny or cloudy, summer or winter, UV rays are stronger at higher altitudes. Visitors should always wear a high-SPF sunscreen to avoid sunburn, and sunglasses to protect their eyes.
There is a designated room for nursing mothers located in the International Center Foyer. This room also includes a refrigerator.
Food and Beverage
The Broadmoor has multiple restaurants and Grab and Go stations around its campus. Food and beverage carts will be available outside and concessions are available inside the Northrop Grumman Exhibit Center – North Hall (Bartolin Hall).
Space Foundation works with national, regional, and local law enforcement and emergency personnel to plan and safeguard all attendees and activities associated with Space Symposium. We will have onsite security at The Broadmoor and Cheyenne Mountain Resort. All attendees and participants are subject to security screening and may have their bags or belongings searched for dangerous or prohibited items. Participants may not bring firearms or weapons of any kind to any of Space Symposium’s locations.
Space Symposium attracts media from around the world. As such, please be aware of the cameras and recording devices around you. Attending media will be badged with a media credential issued by Space Foundation.
