Inspire. Innovate. Grow.

The UK Space Conference is well established as the most important and influential event for space in the UK. For the fifth time, this biennial event will bring together the UK and international space community from across government, industry and academia to exchange ideas, share plans, develop relationships and seek inspiration to thrive in the new space age. 

The conference will again provide unrivalled networking opportunities and build on the success of Manchester 2017 where 1,200 representatives and over 100 exhibitors took part. 

5G - will it make or break the space industry?

12:20 - 13:00 Thursday, 26 September 2019 (third day of the conference)

Integrating satellite systems into future 5G networks is an existential issue for the space industry: how do we avoid our failures with 3G and 4G and secure our industry's future?
