16th Australian Space Forum Trade Mission & Export Academy

Posted on August 3, 2023

As a part of the UK-Australia Space Bridge in partnership with Austrade, Australian Space Agency, UK Space Agency and the Department for Business Trade, are organising a trade mission in partnership for the UK space industry to visit Australia during week commencing 4th December 2023 to coincide with the 16th Australian Space Forum, of which UK Space Agency will be a featured partner

This mission will include a visit to three destinations across Australia during the week to enable a thorough series of engagement opportunities across numerous space clusters to have direct discussions with industry, academia and government at both state and federal levels, as well as the opportunity for participation in one of Australia’s largest dedicated space conferences.

Please see here the link to register for the trade mission. Registration closes on 15th September 2023. The number of participants will be limited to 15 this year to help keep numbers manageable within limited resources. Please note this mission is not funded or subsidised, and companies are required to cover their own financial expenses, however DBT will seek a discounted rate wherever possible.

Furthermore, we are organising a Space Bridge Export Academy for SMEs to learn about the principles of international trade in the lead-up to this mission. The Academy will provide a free online learning programme to enable SMEs to explore a range of topics including an introduction to the UK and Australian space sectors, trade policy, export finance, law and regulation, banking and tax, and business pitching. Spaces are limited, reserved for companies with limited exporting experience, and open to both UK and Australian entities. Registration closes on 1st September 2023. Use the following link to register. https://forms.office.com/e/zgFxnpqssK

In addition, DBT are coordinating a number of international visitors to attend the UK Space Conference, including representatives from Australia, as an additional opportunity for B2B engagement. If there’s support we can provide you for engagement with our delegates, please express your interest (and any other questions you may have) at space@businessandtrade.gov.uk
