LOGAN, Utah — SpaceNews is producing the exclusive online show dailies for all four exhibit days at the 31st Conference on Small Satellites, happening Aug. 5 – 10, 2017, at Utah State University in Logan, Utah.

Under exclusive arrangement with the Small Satellite Conference-owner Utah State University, SpaceNews.com’s front page will be ‘taken over’ by the Small Sat show; each daily will feature must-read on-site reporting by SpaceNews journalists. In addition to SpaceNews.com’s normal reach of 300,000 unique visitors and over 1 million page views per month, coverage will be promoted on SpaceNews’ extensive social media channels, including some 50,000 Twitter and Facebook followers.

In addition to the unparalleled on-site reach of the online dailies, SpaceNews’s pre-show print issue (cover date: July 31) will have bonus distribution to all show pre-registrants.

Founded in 1987, the AIAA/USU Conference on Small Satellites expects this year’s event to set record attendance, topping last year’s 2,300 participants, and is the world’s preeminent gathering of small satellite entrepreneurs, customers, inventors, sponsors, and students.

With a focus this year on Big Data and small satellites’ increasing ability to satisfy a data-hungry global market, the event features key decision makers from dozens of countries, including leading military, civil and commercial customers.

SpaceNews has provided reliable, in-depth, knowledgeable coverage of the Small Satellite Conference over the past decades, so it’s natural we chose them as a media partner to further grow SmallSat,” said Conference Administrator Marianne Sidwell.
