Since its formation the IAC has grown into a site of collaboration and cooperation on multiple levels, and as such garners the presence of high-profile representatives from international space agencies and institutions.

The IAC draws in over 4000 participants from around the world each year — top space agency officials and delegations, astronauts, industry stalwarts, scientists and engineers, press and public, attend the congress in significant numbers.

IAC 2020 will attract:

  • Heads of global space agencies, high-level officials and executives
  • Policy and decision makers and legal experts
  • Industry representatives and innovators
  • Astronauts, scientists, engineers and specialists
  • Researchers and academics
  • Young professionals and students
  • Members of the press

IAC 2020 will not just be a unique chance to meet and interact with these factions, but it is also a chance for organisations to showcase their developments and contributions in front of key representatives.
