Event Details

A programme of seminars has been scheduled to take place in the Space Zone during Farnborough Airshow on the UK space stand in Hall 3.

The purpose of the seminar programme is to highlight selected space and satellite enabled topics relevant to the visiting aerospace, aviation, defence and security commercial communities as well as the visiting civil and military delegations.

The aim of these interactive sessions is to provide a starting point for conversations to lead into more detailed discussions either at Farnborough or as part of a follow up process.

Places are limited so it is important to book your place ASAP.

Tickets for Farnborough are not included.
