Unlocking Africa’s Space Potential: NewSpace Africa Conference 2024

The NewSpace Africa Conference stands as a premier gathering of luminaries, entrepreneurs, investors, and key players within the African space and satellite industry. In a global landscape where private-sector initiatives are driving space commercialization, this event serves as a focal point for exploring the burgeoning opportunities within Africa’s space sector, transcending traditional geopolitical boundaries and welcoming diverse market players.
