Case Study

UK Space Conference 2015

Biggest UK Space conference ever

Britain’s space industry has almost doubled in value over the past decade.

With private sector interest in space innovation at an all-time high, Bray Leino Events was selected to revitalise their UK Space Conference. While the project had to break even in terms of cost, the overall objective was to devise, manage and deliver the biggest and best event in their history; delegate experience, as always, would be key.

To ensure broad discussion, speakers were recruited from across many different relevant industries, (including Tim Peake, who called in live from his astronaut training base in Kazakhstan). 

The event attracted representatives from national broadcast and print press and 1,100 delegates. Our commercial event team over-achieved on its cost-neutral objective, delivering a 70% increase in sponsorship revenue and an overall profit, which will be used to fund the next event in 2017. It was described by industry commentators as ‘a vital rallying platform for the UK space industry ’.  This was the biggest UK Space conference ever.
