NewSpace Africa Conference 2020 to be Held in Addis Ababa in November

Space commercial interactions are expanding thanks to the emergence of NewSpace.  This new era is expanding interactions in the ecosystem, causing a multidimensional interdependence that extends beyond the borders of Africa and the exchange of products and services. There are new multi-million-dollar investments and limitless opportunities for stakeholders and investors in the sector. In 2019, the African space industry was worth USD 7.37 billion and is estimated to grow up to USD 10.24 billion by 2024, experiencing about 40 per cent growth. NewSpace is contributing significantly to this growth and providing an immense business opportunity for various stakeholders.

Given the extensive span of influence and contributions of NewSpace to the evolution of the African Space Industry, it has become necessary to create a forum for stakeholders in this segment from Africa and other parts of the world to network for new contacts and potential partnerships, access the latest NewSpace information on products and developments, explore ideas, debate roadmaps, and discuss future opportunities in the segment and the industry at large. To meet this need, Space in Africa, the authority in news, business and market analyses in the African Space Industry, is organising an inaugural conference for the commercial segment of the industry.

The conference, “NewSpace Africa Conference 2020”, is a high-level gathering of industry leaders, commercial space companies, investors and other key stakeholders in the African Space Industry. Scheduled from 9 – 11 November 2020 at the United Nations Conference Centre in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the 3-day conference will feature selected keynotes, interactive sessions, panel discussions, business pitches, B2B matchmaking, B2C matchmaking and unique networking opportunities.

Attendees will include leaders of national space agencies, the African Union Commission, NewSpace companies, representatives of National Ministries of Science and Technology and Communications, policymakers and government officials, satellite manufacturers and operators, venture fund representatives and investors, Earth Observation companies/organizations, African tech hubs, and many more.
