[SatNews] Offering the widest showcase of space-related technologies used in the design, build and testing of spacecraft, satellite and launch vehicles, Space Tech Expo & Conference will bring together the key players involved in the space industry, under one roof.

With participation from NASA, SpaceX, Boeing, Sierra Nevada Corporation, ATK, Lockheed Martin, DARPA, Federal Aviation Administration, Space Systems/Loral, Thales Alenia Space, United Launch Alliance, XCOR, Commercial Spaceflight Federation, plus many more, the show offers unprecedented access to the industry's leading companies.

Expo attendee numbers have also grown significantly.  Over 1,000 companies from across commercial spacecraft, satellite systems, launch vehicle and spacecraft design, engineering and testing attended the 2013 event, up 15 percent from the prior year. 2014 advance registration figures counted this week revealed broader than anticipated space industry involvement from R&D scientists, entrepreneurs and program management through to C-level attendees, say organizers.
“Another key trend we are seeing is the increasing involvement of the design, manufacturing and test engineering community, including senior engineering management participation from the primes,” said Gordy McHattie, Event Director.   “There’s more packed into Space Tech Expo & Conference than ever before to ensure time out of the office is well spent,” he added.
