ROOM is proud to announce that this year it is an official media partner at the 33rd Space Symposium, to be held April 3-6 in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA.

The Space Symposium annually attracts thousands of space professionals from around the world to the four-day premier space conference.

The Space Symposium has brought together space leaders from around the world to discuss, address and plan for the future of space since the inaugural event in 1984. Attendees at that original event numbered barely 250 space enthusiasts, while participants in recent years have surpassed 11,000. The Space Symposium has become widely known as the premier U.S. space policy and program forum and as the "must attend" opportunity for information on and interaction among all sectors of space.

Space Symposium attendees consistently represent all sectors of the space community from multiple spacefaring nations: space agencies; commercial space businesses and associated subcontractors; military, national security and intelligence organizations; cyber security organizations; federal and state government agencies and organizations; research and development facilities; think tanks; educational institutions; space entrepreneurs and private space travel providers; businesses engaged in adapting, manufacturing or selling space technologies for commercial use; and media that inspire and educate the general public about space.

Bringing all these groups together in one place provides a unique opportunity to examine space issues from multiple perspectives, to promote dialog and to focus attention to critical space issues.

Over the years, the Space Symposium has been the stage from which many notable space leaders have addressed the world. Prominent speakers have included the vice president of the United States; cabinet officials such as the secretaries of commerce, transportation and defense; secretaries of the Air Force; directors of the National Reconnaissance Office; commanders of United States Strategic Command, United States Northern Command and Air Force Space Command; NASA, NOAA and FAA administrators; heads of global space agencies; members of Congress; and senior industry executives, as well as a host of national and state officials, astronauts, private space travelers, etc.
