Wednesday, 6 December 2023
Sydney, New South Wales

The Andy Thomas Space Foundation is looking forward to welcoming a global audience to the 16th edition of the Australian Space Forum, which will be held on Wednesday 6th December 2023 at the International Convention & Exhibition Centre (ICC) in Sydney, New South Wales.

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 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.
