On October 27 and 28, 2022, Galicia will become the meeting point for the main institutions, companies and start-ups in the aerospace sector in Spain. The New Space España, organised by Alén Space, will celebrate its second edition at the Afundación headquarters in Vigo, with the aim of analysing the capabilities, challenges and projects of the Spanish space industry in the field of New Space.
Under the motto ‘El camino hacia el liderazgo global’, New Space España 2022 is a congress in Spanish language that aims to promote interaction between the leading companies and organisations in the space sector and the companies that are breaking into the so-called New Space. This new paradigm, through the irruption of small satellites and the reduction of costs and timeframes, has opened up space to companies and countries that until a few years ago saw it as an impassable terrain.
New Space España 2022 has INDRA and GMV as main sponsors, which are major companies recognised at national and international level for their leadership in the field of technology and space; in addition to the sponsorship of leading Spanish companies and benchmarks in the New Space value chain, including Satlantis, PLD Space, DHV Technology and Alter Technology; and the support of public institutions linked to the promotion of innovation and talent, such as the Galician Innovation Agency (GAIN) of the Xunta de Galicia, the Vigo Free Trade Zone Consortium and the Centre for Research in Telecommunication Technologies (atlanTTic) of the University of Vigo.

During two days, through a series of conferences and round tables with the participation of distinguished experts from the New Space industry. Therefore, they will be analysed the major space mission projects linked to Spain, the main trends in the sector and the possibilities of public-private collaboration that will attract investment to a strategic market, with the aim of making this country a global leader in the field of New Space, with the consequent generation of quality employment, talent and investment.

In November 2018, New Space España had become a pioneering event, the first Spanish congress that brought together the new players in the New Space industry and the main representatives of the ecosystem of the space sector in Spain. This meeting had an excellent response, with more than 25 speakers, 170 registered participants and 80 companies in attendance.
New Space España 2022 aspires to improve these numbers and takes on the challenge of reflecting on the most important trends in the space sector worldwide, in order to contribute innovative ideas that will establish Spain as a European power in New Space.
