About The Global Spaceport Alliance

In 2014 it became clear there was an element to the global commercial space economy that was under served, namely the spaceport ecosystem and its eventual crucial place in the global commercial space economy.

Some of the existing organizations that focused on the commercial space sector did not provide a forum for commercial spaceport operators at all stages of their development to come together and privately discuss their progress, obstacles, and challenges.

Clearly, there was a niche for a new organization.

Consequently, the Global Spaceport Alliance (GSA) was formed in 2015 to fill this niche and is wholly own by the Space Business Network.

The Global Spaceport Alliance (GSA) is the voice of the emerging global spaceport community.

Our vision is to be recognized worldwide as the official organization for spaceports and the spaceport eco-system.

To accomplish this vision we will provide members with the information, data, research and networking needed for the successful planning, funding, and operation of spaceports around the world.
