Plenary programme

Welcome to the IAC 2019!

We are pleased to welcome you to the 70th International Astronautical Congress in Washington, DC. It promises to be a full and rewarding week!

The global space sector is vibrant—evolving and growing, and as we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of humans setting forth to the stars we can take a moment during this year’s IAC and truly be amazed at how far we have come. Space has become a global collaborative industry and the presentations, people, and private companies that you will engage with during this year’s IAC will showcase all of the innovation occurring around the world to turn dreams of exploration into reality. As we look toward the next fifty years we can be proud and excited about the continuing expansion of countries and people who are engaging in space and the new science and technology our sector will continue to create. The future is ours to shape, limited only by our imagination and it starts with IAC 2019!

We wish you an informative, fruitful and enjoyable IAC 2019!
