Save the date!

RIspace is now in its 14th year. We are very pleased to announce that we are returning to the Royal Society – our venue two years ago – for our conference which takes place this year at the end of October.

The 14th Reinventing Space Conference will be held between the Monday 24 and Thursday 27 October 2016 at the Royal Society in London.

RIspace brings together industry, agency, government, financiers, academia and end users for a networking opportunity in the low cost access and utilisation arena which is second to none. The conference and exhibition is organised by the British Interplanetary Society.

The afternoon of Monday 24 October is our “pre conference day” to which all delegates are welcome. The main three day conference and exhibition takes place between Tuesday 25 and Thursday 27 October. We are proposing once again an optional extra day on Friday 28 October with site tours of the UK space industry.

  • Access to Space
  • Applications and Commercialisation
  • Beyond LEO
