International Spaceport Forum

FAA’s Office of Commercial Space Transportation Announces The First International Spaceport Forum

The FAA’s Office of Commercial Space Transportation sent this announcement out today.
We are thrilled to share it with you!


The FAA’s Office of Commercial Space Transportation will host an International Spaceport Forum on Sunday, October 13, 2024, in collaboration with the Global Spaceport Alliance, the day prior to the start of the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) 2024 in Milan, Italy. This event will be held at the MICO Convention Centre, the same venue as IAC 2024.  Registration for IAC is not required to attend this event – registration for the International Spaceport Forum will be fee-free. 

The International Spaceport Forum will bring together spaceports and space regulators from all over the world to discuss topics ranging from globally consistent safety regulations, spaceport infrastructure and interoperability, best practices for spaceport security, and future international multilateral cooperation for the growing global commercial space transportation industry.  This event is the first of its kind, and we look forward to building strong international cooperation for space as an outcome from this event.  

An agenda and interest survey will be sent in the next couple of months.  We are sending this early save the date notice for awareness and calendar coordination. 

We hope to see all of you in Milan. 

Thank you, 

FAA Office of Spaceports Staff
