Space-Comm Expo to Welcome the Global Commercial Space Industry to the UK

More than 130 of the leading space innovators around the world will be exhibiting and sharing future-focused insight at Space-Comm Expo, 7-8 September 2022.

Hot on the heels of the Farnborough International Airshow, Space-Comm Expo will be accelerating the conversation on the future of the commercial space sector. Brought to the industry by leading organisers Hub Exhibitions, in partnership with the aerospace events experts at Farnborough International, Space-Comm Expo is the only UK based exhibition dedicated to showcasing and sharing insight on the commercial future of space for business, defence and aerospace.

Building on the resounding success from the 2021 event, Space-Comm Expo will demonstrate the technologies, partners and policy required and showcase the manufacturing supply chain for products, services and solutions available to support commercial enterprises and developments in space. Positioned at the forefront of the space industry, Space-Comm Expo is supported by ADS, KTN, UK Space Agency, ESA and UK Space.

As a new staple in the space industry calendar, Space-Comm Expo 2022 is already 40% larger than the 2021 launch, with aerospace leaders and technology providers including Airbus, BAE Systems, CGI, Cornwall Space Cluster, In-Space Missions, Kayhan Space, Rolls-Royce, Raytheon UK and Space Florida exhibiting across the two-day event. More than 35% of the businesses exhibiting at the event are international, with 20% of the show floor from the US alone.

Rob Sherwood, Managing Director of Hub Exhibitions, commented: “The commercial space industry is growing at an exponential rate. To put that into perspective, satellite consultancy Euroconsult recently shared that there will be 17,000 satellites launched over the next 10 years, a fourfold increase over the previous 10 years. Therefore Space-Comm Expo has been curated to represent the entire supply chain, from cloud data sharing and satellites to manufacturing and mining. Our exhibitors are true game changers across the sector and I’m excited to welcome them to the second instalment of Space-Comm Expo.”

Joe Muir, Aerospace Commercial Director at Farnborough International, added: “We are at a pivotal junction for the space industry, with new innovations and pioneering businesses entering the market to support the commercialisation of the sector. Space-Comm Expo provides a platform to the industry to drive the industry forward, accelerating vital conversations and showcasing the future-altering technology that will enable businesses, and the sector, to grow.”

Taking place at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre, Space-Comm Expo features a world-class speaker programme of over 90 space experts and Government officials across three themed theatres, an exhibition of over 100 industry-leading organisations and the opportunity to take part in 1-2-1 meetings with key suppliers and partners.
