INCON BEST PRACTICE CASE STUDY: BTC
‘Making space accessible and affordable to all countries’
International Astronautical Congress (IAC)
BY INCON PARTNER: BTC
The International Astronautical Congress (IAC) was hosted in 2016 by the Mexican Space Agency and the International Astronautical Federation in Mexico. This Congress was attended by scientists, researchers and space agencies from all over the world. Delegates gathered with international organizations to discuss new research, discoveries and technologies that explore the possibilities that space offers to assure the future of humanity.
WHAT IS IAC?
The International Astronautical Congress (IAC) is the one time of the year when members from all sectors of the space industry come together. Global and multidisciplinary, the IAC covers all topics across the sector helping to showcase the latest developments in astronautical science. Above all, the Congress provides opportunities for contacts and potential partnerships. Each year the IAC changes country, theme and local organiser, enabling more regions and people to be a part of the world space scene.
