Supporting the new space revolution!
Space-enabled data is an increasingly important means of observing our Earth and provides a host of innovative new business and science opportunities. To help get this message across, we recently delivered DATA.SPACE 2019 – a two-day conference in Glasgow, Scotland with an aim of raising awareness of the commercial opportunities that are being created by the democratisation of space.
DATA.SPACE 2019 provided a platform for thought-leaders across start-ups, investors, and decision, policy, knowledge, and data makers to network and discover what is possible.
Following a successful multichannel recruitment campaign, the event attracted delegates from a broad range of global academia, government and industries across many sectors, including energy, marine & maritime, sustainable cities, agriculture & aquaculture, life sciences, transport, and more.
With the event taking place at the Technology & Innovation Centre (University of Strathclyde) in Glasgow, the nearby Clydeside Distillery was chosen as a superb venue for a welcome Drinks Reception, complete with whisky tasting and distillery tours reflecting Scotland’s famous whisky heritage. A Gala Dinner took place the following evening at Oran Mor complete with a carefully curated Scottish-themed menu.
The event agenda for the conference included speaker sessions covering how space-enabled data can benefit different industries from experts in the field. The accompanying exhibition featured a range of exhibitors and sponsors to showcase their expertise, providing a great opportunity for delegates to learn about the latest developments, network and make new connections. An innovation area also showcased 10 of the most innovative and ambitious start-ups who are “ones2watch.”
The event was a great success, with 100% of delegates who submitted feedback saying they would recommend it to a customer or partner organisation. One delegate commented “DATA.SPACE is excellent value for money and provides a great forum to speak with New Space SME’s”.
