About this Event

North East Satellite Applications of Excellence in conjunction with Northern Orbit and Supply Chain North East are holding an event to highlight the opportunities available in the UK Space Launch market and beyond.

Join us to also hear two companies in the space launch sector talk about their businesses and opportunities for supply and collaboration.

Speakers from Skyrora – a launch vehicle technology company based in Edinburgh, and TAO Tech UK – a locally based high altitude platform company will be sharing their ambitions for growth and opportunities to work with them.

The UK Space Agency aims to capture 10% of the global space market by 2030. The estimated global sector value for then is £400bn, and UK’s market share is currently around 7%. As one of the fastest growing sectors and the cost barriers to entry being lowered, it is a great opportunity not to be missed.
