According to the latest “State of the Canadian Space Sector” report, the space sector generated revenues of $5.5B with a workforce of nearly 10,000. Upstream segment activities related to research, engineering and manufacturing generated revenues of $0.9B, while downstream segment operations, products and services accounted for $4.6B. Export sales emerged as a significant area of growth.
In global terms, the space economy will triple from CAD $435 billion in 2016 to $1.46 trillion in 2040. Many innovations now critical to most organizations resulted from space R&D, and chances are that many future innovations will be sourced in the cosmos as well. As the Global Future Council on Space Technologies predicts a new wave of space-enabled innovation by 2030, this event will provide a forum to the Chamber's sponsors, special guests and key stakeholders to:
Improve their understanding of Space Economy
Explore future opportunities of this sector
Create new connections between leaders and innovators in this field.
With a view to engaging a new audience and deepening the knowledge of experienced participants, the event will take the format of a moderated panel presentation where speakers will simplify the complexity of the subject by each making a five-minute presentation on one aspect of Space Economy, followed by a Q&A session with the audience. After the panel discussion, the participants will be able to continue the conversation and interact with leaders driving the Space Economy sector.
The panel presentation aims to provide participants with:
A better understanding of the future of Space Economy
Increased awareness of the opportunities and challenges associated with this sector
The panel presentation outcome document will capture key learning from the event and opportunities for future collaboration.
