About

Since 1988, the Space Frontier Foundation has been focused on growing the commercial space industry on the path to space settlement. In doing so, the Foundation has established the NewSpace conference as a forum for space entrepreneurs, investors, innovators, government decision makers, and commercial space companies to convene and to further advance space development through exclusive interactions. While providing ample opportunities for these invaluable connections to be made in private and semi-private spaces at the conference venue, NewSpace also aims to exhibit high quality, relevant content to the current state of the space industry.

This year, at NewSpace 2018, we will be focusing on how companies are prompting growth along three horizons: now, new, and next. Now, the space industry is advancing with rapid expansion. New companies are developing innovative technologies while building on well established business models. Next, we begin to see completely reconstructed and modernized business models as well as technologies. At the NewSpace conference, we showcase companies in the space industry that are inspiring growth in all three horizons, with a focus on new technologies and products driving innovation in proven markets.
