The International Astronautical Congress (IAC) consists of a scientific conference program and a space exhibition. It is the one time of the year opportunity when about 4,000 space actors from all over the world come together.

Global, multidisciplinary, and covering all space sectors and topics, it offers everyone the latest space information and above all new contacts and potential partnerships.

Each year the IAC changes country, theme, and local organizer, enabling everyone to learn more about and be part of the world space network. the host for the IAC 2018 was Bremen – Germany’s main space city and one of Europe’s major space centres.

With the theme “IAC 2018 – involving everyone”, the IAF’S theme is to share a vision of a more diverse space sector. The extensive outreach program will place special emphasis on the new generation of space experts, the expansion of equal opportunities, the integration of new countries and start-up companies into the global space network, as well as increasing the public participation.
