On November 15–17, 2016, SpaceCom — the Space Commerce Conference and Exposition — will present an event engineered to highlight the intersection points between terrestrial industries and the aerospace community.

SpaceCom is a catalyst to developing a sustainable commercial market ecosystem in LEO and sub-orbital environments, which expands beyond reliance on NASA as a primary customer and launch provider. It will explore business opportunities from, and between, space and terrestrial industries, with an emphasis on common technology challenges across industries.
