individuals to travel in space.
Every year the conference has been a meeting place for industry players to debate,
partner and invest in new and opportunities for tomorrow. The conferences showcase
commercial space enterprises and frontier enabling technologies. From Mars colonies
to asteroid mining, space tourism to space power, each yearly space Frontier

Near-Earth Asteroids, and Doing Business on Space Stations. There were half-day

Breakthroughs, and The Moon, Mars, and the Far Frontier. In addition, there was an
Art Show short hosted by the International Association of Astronomical Artists, and a
