Engagement Zone opportunities

To foster exploration and discovery, ASCEND eschews exhibit booths for Engagement Zones, engineered to spark innovation and interactivity.  We encourage you to create engaging, experiential activations that reflect the collaborative nature of ASCEND and the international space community.  It’s the ideal opportunity to meet buyers, investors and potential partners and position your brand at the cutting edge of the international space community’s next giant leap. Details coming soon.

How ASCEND is different

About the science

Backed by AIAA, this is a politically and commercially neutral event, convened around the best practices of space science and engineering.

A clean slate

ASCEND convenes all those who’ll have a hand in making humanity’s off-world future a reality. Not just traditional space organizations, but also non-traditional groups like hospitality, mining, tourism and pharma.

Getting down to business

It’s not just about technical sessions and problem-solving, it’s also about business and the collaboration required to get life in space off the ground.

Forming new connections

It’s not about siloed “tracks” of content; it’s about interdisciplinary interaction addressing common issues and fostering non-traditional partnerships.

An action-centered event

It’s not just about sharing new ideas; it’s also about joining entities together to maximize their impact and reach.

Not just exploring new frontiers but new markets

It’s focused on pushing the entire ecosystem forward, not just the traditional players.

Expand your orbit

It enables interaction and mutually beneficial relationships among industry partners and attendees.

Network with these institutions and organizations during ASCEND

ASCEND is the world’s first gathering of the entire space ecosystem. Don’t miss your chance to experience this truly historic event. Here are ASCEND’s sponsors, Guiding Coalition members, speakers, and attending companies who will be joining us this November.
