Open to the public and hosted by Expo 2020 on 5-6 October 2020, the digital event will bring together numerous members of the Expo family, including Expo 2020 International Participants, Official Partners and the general public. It will highlight the latest innovations in space research and travel, while also providing a platform to discuss important topics such as women in space and the UAE’s space landscape.

A space-focused virtual event, featuring speakers like Her Excellency Sarah Al Amiri, UAE Minister of State for Advanced Technology, Chairwoman of the UAE Space Agency and science lead for the Emirates Mars Mission, the UAE's first interplanetary mission, and James L.
