Registration prices for the Space Frontier Foundation’s annual NewSpace 2011 Conference are about to rise. The end of early bird pricing is June 17th so register now and discover how the greatest moments in space are ahead of us, not behind. NewSpace 2011 is three days of eye-opening discussion on the present state and future goals of the commercial space industry. With the “The Next Big Thing” being the conference theme, this event isn’t to be missed by anyone with a stake in our future in space. The conference will be held at the NASA Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley on July 28-30. Register online at newspace.spacefrontier.org/registration.

NewSpace 2011 is dedicated to strengthening the commercial space industry and it couldn’t come at a better time. NewSpace is rapidly expanding and Thursday will address the many opportunities for commercial space companies to work with existing civil space programs. Friday’s panels will focus on the development of space businesses through discussions on market potential and by nurturing entrepreneurship at the NewSpace Business Plan Competition. Saturday’s events will look farther ahead and keep everyone inspired with plans for space settlements, game-changing technologies, and futuristic science. Conference speakers include Clayton Mowry, President of Arianespace, George Whitesides, CEO of Virgin Galactic, Lori Garver, NASA Deputy Administrator, and many more. The conference will end on a high note with the NewSpace Awards Gala where we’ll toast to a bright future in space and recognize the rocketeers getting us there. Find out more about the agenda online.

There are too few opportunities to be surrounded by other space enthusiasts, pioneers, and leaders, and have long discussions about humanity’s future in space. NewSpace 2011 is a place to fight for that future during the day and make new friends at night during the many entertaining after-hours events. Numerous projects and businesses have sprung up out of meetings at NewSpace Conferences. Register for NewSpace 2011 and meet a whole network of people as invested in space as you.
