The International Symposium for Personal and Commercial Spaceflight (ISPCS) is the most relevant, high-value commercial space conference of the year.This year, through two high-impact days of dynamic dialogue and collaboration, ISPCS will address strategies to manage the risks and reap the rewards of the rapidly evolving commercial space industry.Handcrafted panel discussions will examine key industry issues and trends in the high-risk ventures of developing new platforms for suborbital space and beyond.
As the industry quickly outgrows its infancy, ISPCS participants will discuss what further investments are needed, what the realistic expectations are of the rewards for taking such risks and what the prescribed timeframe for success will be. The content offered at ISPCS will give participants a better understanding of the current environment and assessment of the paths traveled before to better strategically plan the future, confront the challenges ahead and reap the rewards for the risks incurred.
