Made for Space: New manufacturing opportunities

Register now for our Made for Space event on 2-3 May 2019 to explore the opportunities in the space industry.

Made for Space is a two-day intensive conference examining the opportunities and challenges for manufacturing within the global space sector. With sessions focusing on key advanced manufacturing technologies, such as: additive manufacturing, surface engineering and advanced coatings, robotics and automation, and joining, Made for Space brings together international experts from both the space and advanced manufacturing sectors who will show how these new manufacturing technologies can help to address the challenge of producing the next generation of space hardware.

Why attend?

  • Get an insight into the opportunities for manufacturers in the space sector
  • Hear from leading international experts from both the space and manufacturing sectors
  • Visit our all-day exhibition accompanied by refreshments and networking
  • Take a tour of the MTC's state-of-the-art facilities


Keynote Speakers

  • How can the UK space sector lead the world?
    Graham Peters, Chairman, UK Space
  • What does the future hold for space manufacturing in the UK?
    Tony Mears, Technology Roadmapping & Harmonisation Lead, UKSA
  • Thomas Rohr, Head of Materials & Processes, ESA
  • Advanced Manufacturing: An extraordinary technology ecosystem
    John Vickers, Principal Technologist, Space Technology Mission Directorate, NASA
  • Key findings from Day 1 Summit
    UK Space Agency

Technical presentations from experts in the following organisations:
