Les Assises du NewSpace the annual French NewSpace meeting event

Tuesday, June 25 Wednesday, June 26

Be connected to the French NewSpace ecosystem !

The advent of NewSpace is introducing new applications, transforming the space industry, and prompting legacy players to evolve their strategies in response to the numerous initiatives from new entrants, digital players, startups, and major clients over the past decade. This strategic and impactful sector, now more accessible, opens up a vast array of opportunities that French space actors must seize in a competition that has naturally become global.

In just two editions, the NewSpace Conference has become the definitive venue where the future of the French new space economy is shaped, placing innovation at the heart of its engine. Through discussions and debates, this event will bring together ecosystem stakeholders and end-users around roundtables, workshops, and presentations addressing four structuring themes: new uses and customer testimonials, innovation, the new economy, and French and European policy. Special attention is given to the new generation of entrepreneurs who are enriching the French space ecosystem and pushing the boundaries of what is possible within the Spacetech Village.

These two days of conferences are part of a significant project supported by a collective composed of 18 major players representative of the French space ecosystem. This collective has led the democratic process resulting in the publication of the first French report dedicated to French NewSpace.

The future of NewSpace depends partly on the initiatives and measures that will be built and shared at this event and more broadly as part of this national project.

Increasing ambition in 2024

After the success of the first two seasons, it became obvious to all participants, partners and organisers that further NewSpace Sessions would take place, with, furthermore, an upscaling of the event:

  • 4 conference cycles:
    • New private uses (in French and English)
    • Innovation (in French and English)
    • Economics and politics (in French and English)
    • Europe (in English only)
  • In particular, we will be integrating a NewSpace perspective into the dynamics of India and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) during the plenary sessions
  • Growth of the spacetech village, with the presence of between 70 and 100 French and European startups
  • Amplified media coverage: A BFM Business TV Studio will be located on-site for the event
  • A new edition of the evening gala at the National Assembly, in partnership with the Aeronautics and Space parliamentary group, will take place
  • Our goal is to reach 1,200 participants

NewSpace Sessions – Season 3, the arena to promote French NewSpace development, a true hub for space innovation and the strategic challenges of the new French space economy.
