Space Foundation + NSS... Apps On The Way...

As the space industry becomes more international and more diversified, it reaches into more segments of the economy and has more impact on the overall information infrastructure and financial climate. A high-level panel of space leaders and economic experts will address this natural outcome of an evolving business sector at the 26th National Space Symposium this April 12-15 at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The Emerging Applications Across the Space-Based Value Chain panel is being presented in association with Euroconsult, an independent investment banking firm specializing in mergers, acquisitions, company sales, and corporate divestitures involving global multinational corporations, prominent mid-sized companies, and leading private equity firms. The relationship between the Space Foundation and Euroconsult underscores the increasingly international nature of the National Space Symposium. Led by Steve Bochinger, director of Institutional Affairs for Euroconsult and managing director for Euroconsult North America, the panel will feature five senior members of leading international corporations:
  • John Celli, president and chief operating officer, Space Systems/Loral
  • Brian Holz, executive vice president and chief technology officer, O3B Networks USA, LLC
  • John K. Hornsby, Ph.D., general manager, MDA Geospatial Services
  • Dara A. Panahy, partner, Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP
  • Colin Paynter, head of Business Growth, Astrium Satellites
The 26th National Space Symposium's top allure to attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, and speakers is as a venue for networking and conducting meaningful business. This year's program offers workshops, forums, panels, and presentations covering all aspects of space, including the sold-out Cyber 1.0, targeted programs for young, up-and-coming "new generation" space professionals, and engaging programs for selected teachers and students. Plus, the extensive AMERICOM Government Services (AGS) Exhibit Center features the latest in space technology.
