15th Australian Space Forum

The Andy Thomas Space Foundation is looking forward to welcoming a global audience to the 15th edition of the Australian Space Forum, which will be held on Tuesday, 9 May 2023 at the Adelaide Convention Centre in South Australia.

Supported by the Australian Space Agency, the South Australian Space Industry Centre and SmartSat CRC, the Forum provides the perfect opportunity to stimulate ideas, share information about emerging technologies and network with influential space sector leaders and the broader community.

Participants can attend in-person, or virtually through the event’s global interactive platform.

The space sector in Australia is experiencing unprecedented growth as industry, academia, and government work together to expand their activities and develop international relationships for ongoing opportunity and success within the space economy.

Forum sessions will include international panels covering highly pertinent topics that shape our industry.

This iconic event is not to be missed and represents one of the foremost events on the national space industry calendar.
