Reinventing Space

Highlighting the trends that will define space enterprise a decade from now

The 16th Reinventing Space Conference and Exhibition will be held between Tuesday 30 October and Thursday 1 November 2018 at 4 Hamilton Place, London, UK. The conference and exhibition is organised by the British Interplanetary Society.

RISpace brings together industry, agency, government, financiers, academia and end users.

The increasing pace of commercialisation is expected to lead to major new applications in Earth orbit over the next decade. These will include mega-constellations for communications and for active and passive remote sensing in both the optical and RF domains.

In the next ten years we also expect to see the start of sustainable operations in space; in-situ resource utilisation and on-orbit manufacturing will enable the robotic construction of  much larger structures in space. This will open up new capabilities for space science, and for manned exploration of the Solar System, exploiting the increasing availability of cheap launch services.

We look forward to welcoming you to London!

RIspace 2018 will be held from Tuesday 30 October until Thursday 1 November 2018 at No.4 Hamilton Place, London, UK.
