UK Space Agency roadshow

The UK Space Agency is touring the country with industry workshops and public open evenings on LaunchUK – the campaign to enable small satellite rocket launches and sub-orbital flights from UK spaceports.

It is an exciting time for the UK space sector. New legislation to regulate launch is currently before Parliament. And proposals are being considered to fund the new technology and infrastructure needed.

LaunchUK will spread new opportunity throughout the space and aerospace sectors. The UK Space Agency and its partners want to explore how the market could develop, what opportunities it offers for new supply chains, and how the benefits can be delivered across the UK.

If you plan to get your business involved in UK space launch, operate satellites, launch vehicles, spaceports, ranges or related services in the UK or support the development of related supply chain opportunities in Wales - this event is for you.

The event takes place in Cardiff on 5 December 2017 at the Principality Stadium, Cardiff from 10am to 5pm.

There will also be a chance for the public to find out more about plans for small satellite launch and sub-orbital flight from UK spaceports, with each roadshow having an open evening with experts from the UK Space Agency and Civil Aviation Authority on hand to answer questions.
