New Space Symposium Dates Announced by Space Foundation

The Space Foundation has announced that the 36th Space Symposium has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 31 through Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

Hosted at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, the annual assembly of the world’s space community will gather leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs from the civil, commercial, military, research, and international sectors to share, explore, and partner on efforts that will impact lives beyond Earth and upon it.

The 36th Space Symposium was originally scheduled for March 30 – April 2 but was postponed due to the unfolding Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.

Given the date and timing changes for this year’s Symposium program, attendees will find a revamped agenda from what was originally scheduled for this spring. Changes to the agenda, including updates on the presenters and programming, will be shared on a continual basis and be posted regularly at www.spacesymposium.org. Additional program announcements and adjustments will also be shared at the same site.

Registration fees paid to attend the 36th Space Symposium will be automatically transferred to the rescheduled program, which will commence on October 31, 2020. Individuals deciding to not attend the rescheduled Symposium are requested to notify the Space Foundation to receive a full refund of registration fees that have been already paid.

We will continue to monitor all of the public health reports and adhere to all of the federal, state, and local orders regarding public assemblies but we have confidence in planning ahead for a future that brings our community safely back together in Colorado Springs.
