Reinventing Space 2024 London

Reinventing Space is a conference and exhibition dedicated to advancing humanity’s future capabilities in space and highlights the trends that will define space enterprise a decade from now.

Organised by the British Interplanetary Society, each year, the conference brings together a network of innovators from industry, agency, government, financiers, academia and end users to present and discuss the key challenges and opportunities for future space leadership and growth.

This Year’s Reinventing Space Conference will take place in London on 11-13 November at the Royal Aeronautical Society, 4 Hamilton Place, London, W1J 7BQ. The Gala Dinner and Sir Arthur Clarke Awards will take place on the evening of the second day, Tuesday 12 November.


The theme of this year’s conference is The Commercial Revolution’ and will focus on the key benefits and emerging issues presented by the rapidly growing number of space missions and activities driven by increasing commercial activity:

“A significant change in the utilisation of Near-Earth Space is underway, resulting from the launches of very large numbers of commercial satellites. The Reinventing Space Conference in 2024 will focus on the likely implications of this revolution over the next two decades; not only for the manufacturers and operators of the satellites themselves, but also for the legal, logistical, educational, and space surveillance communities which support them”

The second day, Tuesday 12 November, will incorporate the ‘Beyond The Moon Symposium’, which will explore the “longer-term possibilities, critical challenges and key stepping stones required for the future exploration and development of space”

Abstracts of up to 500 words are invited for submission via

Please clearly indicate upon submission, whether you wish to submit your abstract into the main Reinventing Space programme ‘The Commercial Revolution’ or the ‘Beyond the Moon’ Symposium. Selected abstracts may be moved between sessions, subject to the final programme planning.
