The Royal Aeronautical Society President’s Conference, inaugurated in 2013, aims to be the premier conference in its class for the international aerospace community and one of the most auspicious events of its kind. The 2014 President’s Conference will showcase the work being undertaken in the UK and around the world to roll back the frontiers of space exploration and increase its commercial exploitation.

The Conference will examine future opportunities and challenges, novel and contentious solutions, and the potential benefits of pushing the boundaries further. It will ask questions and seek solutions. The papers will be presented by distinguished speakers who are pre-eminent in their fields.

The wide-ranging Conference will take a global perspective, and will cover the strategic challenges; the economics of commercial spaceflight; the opportunities presented by partnerships; the strategies for innovation and growth; and the UK Government’s vision for the future.
