About this Event

Midlands Space Networking is back for an online networking session via Zoom.

We hope that you are all taking care in these unprecedented and uncertain times. The Coronavirus pandemic has affected life substantially but we still hope to keep the space community connected.

We seek to build and strengthen the UK space community by organising a regular meetup to connect businesses, academics, organisations and individuals interested in space.

Do you work/aspire to work in the space sector? Are you looking to meet people from across the space industry? Come along to our virtual networking event to share and discuss the latest space news/industry trends.

Ad astra,

Ryan Bradley-Evans and Ryan Laird
