WHO WILL SPEAK?

ASCEND will have its share of astronauts and astrophysicists, but it will also feature entrepreneurs and visionaries from fields not traditionally associated with outer space. Nothing reflects this rich diversity and ingenuity more than the distinguished speakers at this year’s event.

WHY ATTEND?

The launching pad of the $1 trillion space economy

ASCEND is the international space community’s first event focused entirely on getting humanity’s off-world future off the ground. By bringing together traditional players like propulsion, national security, commerce, and science along with many new to the space, like hospitality, tourism, mining, and entrepreneurs, ASCEND not only gives you a platform to advance your career and broaden your contacts within the industry, but it’ll serve as the point of departure for the burgeoning space economy as it skyrockets from $4 billion today to more than $1 trillion in the next twenty years.
