Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic a decision was taken to postpone the conference. The pandemic may have paused the physical hosting of the SpaceOps2020 conference from taking place, but this has not prevented us from exploring alternative formats of presenting the SpaceOps conference .SpaceOps 2020 has thus transformed to SpaceOps2021 – Virtual Edition and will be hosted online. SpaceOps 2021 Virtual Edition will provide an opportunity for more industry players and delegates to participate in the conference and appreciate the diverse and interesting topics from the comfort of their homes and/or offices spaces, without having to travel abroad. Even though the conference will be an online event, the organising committee is still committed to giving you an unforgettable African experience.
