In total, more than 100 speakers have confirmed for the entire SATELLITE 2022 program.

“The speed at which we’ve confirmed speakers for SATELLITE 2022 is a clear indication that the commercial space industry is gearing up for an intense year of activity and eager to promote new products and services,” said SATELLITE 2022 Chair Jeffrey Hill. “We’re still in the early stages of filling out the conference program. This first group of SATELLITE 2022 speakers represents less than half of what will end up being a roster of more than 200 speakers, including those participating in our SGx keynote series and Startup Space entrepreneur pitch contest. We’ll be issuing invitations throughout the remainder of the year.”

Hill added that the event had to forgo its usual “Call for Proposals” (CFP) process this year due to the short six-month time period between SATELLITE 2021 and SATELLITE 2022. In its place, the event relied on feedback from past attendee surveys, the Via Satellite advisory board, and its content partner organizations in developing this year’s conference program.
