UK Space Agency

Biggest UK space conference ever!

Doubled the delegates, achieved cost-neutrality and met an astronaut.

Britain’s space industry has almost doubled in value over the past decade. The growth opportunity is limitless. The UK Space Conference is an authoritative platform which brings together Industry, Government and Academia to exchange ideas and to discuss Britain’s interests in space.

Since 2014 Bray Leino Events has been entrusted to deliver all aspects of this biennial flagship event for the UK space sector.

We are proud to have grown the conference to over 1,200 delegates. A key objective of the event is to be inclusive of the entire space community. Our expert, in-house, Event Directors, Content Strategists and Communications teams worked with 26 stakeholders from across industry, government and academia to widen the circle and target cross-sector delegates, contributors and supporters.

Over £1.5 million generated in sponsorship, exhibition and ticket sales. Our experienced team understands how to develop sponsorship opportunities, structure sales campaigns and achieve cost-neutral events.

Always meet your heroes! We created a spin-off educational outreach event, “Discover Space”, to run alongside the conference. Thousands of children, parents and space enthusiasts flocked to view the latest advances in space technology, interact with objects from far away worlds and meet and be inspired by astronaut Tim Peake.

Breaking with convention. We were challenged to re-imagine the conference format. Our creative team conceived, developed and designed the unexpected across the 3-day programme. Sessions became truly interactive. Networking enhanced, re-focussed and jazzed. The exhibition brought to life by innovation, technology and opportunities to connect.
