Redwire to attend International Astronautical Congress 2021 (IAC)

About the Event
Date: October 25, 2021 - October 29, 2021
For the very first time, the IAC will open its doors to the global space community in the United Arab Emirates, the first Arab country to host the IAC since its establishment in 1950. IAC 2021 will not just be a unique chance to meet and interact with these factions, but it is also a chance for organizations to showcase their developments and contributions in front of key representatives. The IAC draws in over 4000 participants from around the world each year — top space agency officials and delegations, astronauts, industry stalwarts, scientists and engineers, press and public, attend the congress in significant numbers.

Redwire will be participating in a number of panels, workshops, presentations, and announcements throughout the week at IAC. Below is a list of opportunities to catch our representatives speak. Redwire will also have a small exhibitor space within the Luxembourg Space Agency (LSA) booth.
