Introducing NEW SPACE EXPO & CONFERENCE – We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new, standalone event dedicated to the rapidly growing New Space industry. Responding to overwhelming demand, we’ve given New Space a distinct presence at AIRTEC, with its own space and dedicated program. Rest assured, both events will continue to take place simultaneously, inextricably linked as ever.



Space meets new clients

Facilitate customer acquisition for New Space players


Attract new suppliers to the New Space community


Serve as a job market for young professionals and graduates, thus providing highly qualified workforce for New Space companies


Showcase the performance of the New Space community, preferably through existing cooperative projects


Enable pilot projects that serve as proof-of- concept and initial steps towards realizing larger space projects


Enhance the visibility of the New Space community and provide a dedicated hub in Central Europe






Since the term ‘New Space’ is understood in many ways, it is important for us to clarify the interpretation used for NEW SPACE EXPO & CONFERENCE.

The new space industry refers to the recent growth and development of private companies and organizations in the space sector, operating independently or in partnership with government agencies. This industry focuses on developing new and innovative technologies, products, and services related to space exploration, satellite communications, earth observation and more. It represents a shift from traditional government-led space initiatives to a more commercial and market-driven approach. At its core, the new space industry is driven by innovation, entrepreneurship, and a bold vision for the future.
