Space-Comm Expo Scotland has unveiled a world class lineup of keynote speakers from across government, aerospace, defence and academia for the inaugural event taking place at the SEC Glasgow September 11-12.

The biggest space industry event ever held in Scotland will be hosted by Executive Chair of Space-Comm Expo, Will Whitehorn, former President of Virgin Galactic, Chancellor of Edinburgh Napier University and Chair of Seraphim Space Investment Trust, along with speakers from UK Space Agency (UKSA) and European Space Agency (ESA).

The Expo shines a spotlight on space as one of Scotland’s most dynamic growth industries. Scotland is home to over 150 space companies and 80 aerospace companies and supports nearly one fifth of all UK space sector jobs. Scotland builds more small satellites than anywhere else in the world after California. The interest in Space-Comm Expo has been heightened by Scotland's plans for vertical launch before the end of 2024 year and ambitions to become Europe's leading space nation. Registration is free to attend, with over 100 exhibitors and 3,000 attendees including government, clusters, academia and commercial primes, SMEs and start-ups.
