On the 19th June 2012, the 3rd European Space Tourism Conference:Open for Business will be held by the Royal Aeronautical Society, London.
Space tourism is now big business. Tens of millions of dollars have been paid by customers, queuing up to spend time in space. Space Adventures has been operating for over a decade, XCOR and Excalibur Almaz are rolling out their vehicles, and Virgin Galactic is in the final stages of certification in the US – the top management of all four will be here, as well as passengers from the first three.
Spaceport America has opened in New Mexico, Spaceport Sweden hopes to be the first to do so in Europe while Curaçao will offer a Caribbean base – the top management of all three will be at the conference as will the lawyer helping Spaceport Sweden negotiate the regulatory corridors in Brussels.
This conference will provide delegates with up to date information concerning 'New Space', networking opportunities and the forum for discussion on hot industry topics.
