Conference Attendees to Tour Spaceport America

NMSA PR — Attendees at ISPCS 2011 will have an opportunity to tour the nearly-completed Spaceport America on Friday, Oct. 21, following the conference. Spaceport America and New Mexico Spaceport Authority (NMSA) staff members will provide attendees with exclusive insight into the project.

“On behalf of the NMSA, we are enthusiastic about hosting the ISPCS tour to Spaceport America this year,” said Christine Anderson, Executive Director of the Spaceport Authority. “I hope you will be as excited about the progress we have made as we are! The commercial space industry is making great strides and we are happy to be part of that bright future.”

This event is open to ISPCS attendees only and can be selected as an option when registering for an extra cost of $75, which includes a box lunch. Registration for this limited-seating event will close on Friday, October 7th. Any proceeds from the tour will support the Student Launch Program.

The theme of ISPCS 2011 is Business at the Speed of Innovation.

ISPCS 2011 will feature a new indoor Commercial Space Exhibit Hall and a separate symposium room just added to the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum in Las Cruces.
