New Space Economy European ExpoForum
December 10, 2019 - December 12, 2019
Join us at the first edition of New Space Economy (NSE) European ExpoForum. The NSE ExpoForum is organised by Fondazione E. Amaldi and Fiera Roma in cooperation with the Space Foundation and supported by the Italian Space Agency (ASI), with a contribution by the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC). The NSE ExpoForum is an international event focused on the New Space Economy and its ability to promote and create new market opportunities and economic development in Europe. The event therefore offers the main players within the space sector (from SMEs to research centers, from startups to investors, through trade associations, space agencies and institutions) a unique opportunity for formal and informal networking occasions, triggering dialogues that would otherwise hardly take place.
SGAC joined forces with Fondazione E. Amaldi and Fiera Roma to bring a unique panel to the NSE Expoforum, to discuss together on space, youth, startups and innovation.

The NSE – European Expoforum is an international event focused on the New Space Economy and its ability to promote and create new market opportunities and economic development in Europe. The first edition will be held from December 10th to 12th 2019 at Fiera Roma, co-organizer of the event together with Fondazione Amaldi.
The main goal of NSE Expoforum will be to facilitate B2B, B2C and B2G relations, and it will be achieved with a three days programme. NSE Expoforum will take advantage of an extensive exhibition area, where companies will present the latest innovations in the field of the Space Economy, a symposium where international speakers will talk about the latest innovations in space technology, a matching area that will be the perfect setting for networking opportunities, and collateral events aimed at fostering relationships with potential customers or partners.
The event will therefore offer the main players within the space sector (from SMEs to research centers, from startups to investors, through trade associations, space agencies and institutions) a unique opportunity for formal and informal networking occasions, triggering dialogues that would otherwise hardly take place. Tourism, logistics, transport, insurance, agrotech, cyber security, pharma, smart cities, sustainable environmental development, commercial space sector and astropreneurship are just some of the topics that will be addressed during the event.
Halfway between the Centre of Rome and the Rome-Fiumicino International Airport, Fiera Roma is a huge exhibition hub, one of the largest and most prestigious Exhibition pole in Europe. More here.
