Ignite Space

Tuesday, 07 Mar 2023


The National Composites Centre, and Space West, the West of England Space Hub, will be attending the UK Space Agency's Ignite Space, taking place on 7th March, at Aerospace Bristol. 

Ignite Space is an SME-focused event that provides an interactive forum to showcase emerging businesses in the UK space sector and highlights the support available. The event is targeted towards organisations, who seek opportunities in the UK space sector, particularly SMEs and businesses from sectors with space-applicable technologies.

On the day, ‘zones’ will provide interactive spaces for delegates to get involved in discussions and engage with activities. There will be panel sessions on advancing solutions, and discussions around some of the key challenges facing UK businesses in the sector.

Each zone will present a mainstage session on topics that will interest and add value to SMEs:

  • Business Zone: How industry and the insurance community are supporting the sector – Innovative changes

  • Clusters Zone: Find Your Place in Space - Regional Clusters and the UK Ecosystem

  • Government Zone: How To Pitch Your Space Business for Export

  • Skills Zone: Igniting your growth through people

NCC will be located in the government zone, and Space West will be located in the Cluster Zone. If you'd like to make an enquiry ahead of the event to meet with us, email: [email protected]
