Australian Space Forum Touches Down in Adelaide


More than 900 national and international space industry representatives have gathered at the Adelaide Convention Centre for the 15th Australian Space Forum.

Hosted by the Andy Thomas Space Foundation, the biannual event brings together leaders and innovators from across the space industry to discuss current industry trends and to collaborate across industry, academia and government.

The conference examines space cooperation in the Asia Pacific region and provides an update on Australia’s space capabilities.

A significant delegation from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) is in attendance, strengthening Australia’s history of co-operation in space with Japan.

South Australian space capabilities will be showcased at the forum, with local companies joining more than 80 space-related organisations to exhibit their cutting-edge technologies and expertise, providing attendees the opportunity to explore the latest advancements in sovereign space capability.

The South Australian Government is a proud supporter of the Australian Space Forum.

“It’s terrific to welcome the global space community to Adelaide once again for this flagship space event. South Australia is at the forefront of our national and international space efforts and this momentum continues to grow, with more than 100 space organisations driving space innovation in the state,” said Susan Close MP, Acting Premier, Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science.
