The 6th edition of Space Tech Expo Europe is scheduled for 14 – 16 November 2023, returning to its home in the city of space, Bremen, Germany. It’s set to attract 6200+ professionals from the space sector with 94% of 2022 visitors saying they can’t wait to return for 2023, and many new industry representatives signed up to join them.

From budding start-ups to big industry players, over 550 exhibitors will showcase their latest space solutions on the exhibition floor. From Spaceflight Inc, Spire, Berlin Space Technologies and D-ORBIT to Rocket Factory Augsburg, Polaris Raumflugzeuge and Reflex Aerospace, all of them aim to inspire and advance the space industry in their own way, while addressing its critical challenges.

Gordy McHattie, Event Director at Space Tech Expo Europe says: “The 2023 event has grown dramatically yet again, maintaining its status of hosting more exhibiting companies than any global space B2B event. This increase signals further growth and collaboration opportunities in the European space industry. We’re extremely excited to see the progression and increased traction for genuine business project discussions as we return to Bremen this year!”.

This year, the event has expanded into Hall 4.1, located upstairs, to bring attendees even more of the latest products and technologies. The additional hall has also presented the opportunity to introduce the Exhibitor Technology Forum. Here you’ll find exhibitors showcasing their products and services, offering you the chance to experience their tech up close and in person, and ask the experts your burning questions there and then.

Alongside the exhibition, the event will host three free-to-attend conference stages, bringing over 150 expert speakers together from across the continent, to discuss the latest trends, challenges and opportunities in the European space industry.

The Industry Conference, Smallsats Conference and Mobility Connectivity Conference will address a variety of topics including sustainability (in-space, supply chain, system development), space traffic management, European sovereignty in space, funding and investment, space for Earth (climate change, agriculture applications), satcom for decarbonisation, improving passenger and crew welfare and safety and digitalisation.

This year, speaking companies include ESA, Airbus Defence & Space, Tototheo Maritime, SpaceX, European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA), Kongsberg NanoAvionics, Skyrora and OHB.

An opportunity for both Additive Manufacturing companies and space professionals

There are at least a dozen ways AM can contribute to space travel, research and habitation — and in some cases, it already is. With the increasing number of space companies relying mainly on AM to build their rockets, one observes a gap that still needs to be filled at the materials level and at the hardware level, particularly when it comes to the use of AM in space.

Space Tech Expo provides a room for both parties (space companies and AM companies) to discuss and exchange new ideas that may lead to this much needed collaboration.

Enhance your event experience and take advantage of the B2B matchmaking platform. Pre-book one-to-one meetings on the show floor with new prospective clients, partners and industry suppliers. You can also enjoy complimentary drinks and canapés at the networking evening, taking place on Tuesday 14th November, from 16:30 – 18:00 in the exhibition hall. Both opportunities are completely free to all attendees with one all-access event pass.
