A fantastic opportunity for early-stage SME and start-up organisations to showcase their innovations to a panel of influential space industry leaders.

This is your chance to feature innovative space challenges, ideas, and solutions from a range of upstream and downstream technologies.

Applications are now closed. We've received a number of excellent applications for this year's Pitch to the Primes, thank you to everyone who expressed their interest.



The Space Placements in INdustry scheme (SPIN) has been designed to provide an introductory link for those considering employment in the space sector, and space sector organisations looking to find the most talented and enthusiastic people to ensure future success of their businesses.

The scheme is managed by the UK Space Agency and supported by the Satellite Applications Catapult.

SPIN participants will be showcased in the Innovation Zone through poster presentations and 60-second pitches as well as Meet the Author Sessions in the main conference programme.


The Soapbox Sessions are a great opportunity for experts across industry and academia to present technologies and ideas to our online audience.

This is your chance to convince them within a pressing 5-minute, 5-slide presentation of the value of your innovative ideas.

Applications are now closed. Thank you to everyone who expressed their interest. The videos selected will be shown in our Innovation Zone on-demand during the conference.
