The Evolving Architecture of New Space

11 October 2023 | 8:00 am - 13 October 2023 | 5:00 pm

The 20th Reinventing Space Conference and Exhibition takes place between Wednesday 11 October and Friday 13 October 2023 in Liverpool, UK.

RISpace concludes on Friday with the presentation of the Sir Arthur Clarke Awards

The conference and exhibition is a great opportunity for the UK and international space community to meet and network. There will be a strong representation from the regional players in the north west of England.

Our venue – The Spine – is located in Paddington Village at the heart of the Knowledge Quarter in Liverpool’s City Centre.

Alongside the keynotes and panels at the conference, the following papers will be presented:
