Off the back of delivering the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) in 2017, Adelaide has been chosen to host the 19th Australian Space Research Conference (ASRC) this September.
The conference will bring space scientists, engineers and educators to the city, who will discuss fundamental and applied research that applies to the space industry.
The conference will be held in conjunction with the South Australia Space Forum, convened by the South Australian Space Industry Centre.
Adelaide Convention Bureau CEO Damien Kitto said ARSC is one of many business events within the space and defence sector the bureau will bring to South Australia in the years to come.
“The legacies of these events, as was the legacy of the IAC, will continue to provide opportunities for innovation, investment and trade to South Australia,” he said.
“With State Government’s commitment and development of the Innovation Hub at Lot Fourteen, we look forward to promoting this exciting genre to the world as we have and will continue to do successfully within the Health Sciences arena off the back of the BioMed City development.”
The conference will take place at Adelaide Convention Centre from 30 September to 2 October.
