NewSpace 2011 will kick off with a look at the current reality of the commercial space industry and panels will consider the growing need for government and commercial partnerships. After dialogues with both suborbital and orbital space vehicle companies, open roundtable discussions will allow registrants to influence the future of commercial crew programs, government and commercial co-op science platforms, and other potentialities.

Day two will give established and startup companies a chance to strengthen the NewSpace industry and their own business plans. Events will include a business plan competition and war stories from the entrepreneurial frontier. Finally, breakout sessions with rapidly rotating topics will crowdsource the imaginations of the entire conference to openly debate and solve the issues facing the space industry today.

Saturday’s panels will look to the future, from the close at hand opportunities such as orbital hotels and robotic explorers to the far-reaching goals of Mars settlements and advanced propulsion. This thought-provoking day will end with recognition of those that are igniting the commercial space movement at the star-studded NewSpace Awards Gala .
