Space-Comm Scotland is the new catalyst for the Scottish space sector to do business. Cited the best place in the UK to reach in-demand satellite orbits with vertically launched rockets, Scotland’s space sector is rising faster than anywhere else in the UK, aiming to grow in value to £4 billion by 2030. According to data from UK Space Agency, 18% of all UK space roles are filled by Scotland’s 8,440-person strong talent pool.
The new regional instalment of the award-winning Space-Comm Expo, which takes place annually in Farnborough, England, Space-Comm Scotland will bring together the entire value-chain for two days of networking, thought leadership, and buying in defence, downstream data applications and upstream supply chain.
Following the success of Space-Comm Expo, Space-Comm Scotland is supported by the leading organisations and agencies within the industry, with UK Space Agency, UKSpace, ADS Scotland, Space Scotland and KTN named as founding supporters.
A future-focused platform
From satellite platform primes, satellite operators, military, government and application developers, this free to attend exhibition and leading seminar will encapsulate the growing space ecosystem, focusing on the small satellite revolution, the internationalisation of the value chain, the acceleration of spaceports and the increasing commercialisation of the sector.
Did you know?
130+ space companies currently operate from Scotland, including renowned global and emerging companies and operating costs can be up to 40% lower in Scotland than elsewhere in the UK. Space-Comm Scotland will provide a valuable opportunity for the sector to display each area of the supply chain to buyers with active and growing budgets, and drive future workforce.
As the place that makes more satellites than anywhere else in the world outside of California, Space-Comm Scotland will take place at SEC Glasgow, 11-12 September 2024.
It was great to speak at Space-Comm Expo and meet businesses and industry leaders to discuss the future of the space sector, which is opening up new frontiers for humanity, our planet and the economy.
It is a hugely exciting time for the space sector, especially in Scotland, and we are scheduled to have the first vertical orbital launch from European soil later this year.
The Scottish Government is fully committed to ensuring that we help the sector reach the highest heights, as we aim to become Europe’s leading space nation by 2030.
