Bringing together a selection of experts from the industry, the forum will analyze the competitive advantage of various startup solutions for everything from space exploration to space vacations, and what investors should keep in mind when investing in space tech projects, given their often long timelines and large upfront investments.

With the registration starting at 9.30am, the program will kick off at 10.00am with an opening address by Hans Henrik Christensen, Vice President, Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority. The event will also feature an expert keynote by Abdulla Hamad Bushahab, Manager - Business Development Section, Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC), and a panel discussion with our speakers commenting on the various projects the UAE government has initiated to support space-based innovation and encourage interest among local and regional entrepreneurs and investors to join the space race.
