August 27th-28th, 2021: Hokkaido Space Summit 2021 to be held


The Hokkaido Space Summit Executive Committee (Taiki Town, SPACE COTAN Co., Ltd., Interstellar Technologies Inc., Tokachi Foundation, and Tokachi Mainichi Newspaper Co., Ltd.) will be hosting the “Hokkaido Space Summit 2021.”

The Hokkaido Space Summit is a conference held in Hokkaido that explores various aspects of the space business. By 2040, the market for the space industry is estimated to expand to 100 trillion yen. Private players are increasingly entering the global space industry, with the New Space movement accelerating. In Hokkaido, the “Hokkaido Spaceport,” the first private spaceport in Asia, began full operation in April 2021, giving rise to a movement to create a “Silicon Valley of the Space Industry.”

The latest trends and future predictions in the global space business, collaboration between space and other industries, and regional revitalization in Hokkaido centered around space are among the special themes to be discussed with key players in the space business.
