“I make all the connections I need to make out here… The show meets my expectations every year; I want to be here next year – I want to be here until they tell me I can’t come anymore!”

Marshall Pelot, Western Regional Manager, DIT-MCO International

Russell Singer, Design & Development, MAKEiT, Inc

“We’ve made lots of great connections, literally my whole jacket is full of business cards!  The show organisers have just been phenomenal, given us great news feeds – we’ve never had that before. Next year we’ll be back, this is the first – more to come.“

Brian Matthews, CEO, Additec

"You always dream of the connections you’d like to have - on the first day we got all the dream connections; for example Scale Composites, SpaceX, Northrop Grumman – we’ve made contacts there!"

Peter Bishop, CEO & Managing Director, Bishop GmbH - Aeronautical Engineers

 “So far it’s been really good. For us, what’s nice about this conference as suppose to others is it’s a little more technical and engineering focused and so we find the conversations we have we customers or industry partners is more technical focused on the product.”

BAE, BAE Systems

“We have a very new technology and we came here to see what is available in the industry. We’ve have had some interesting contacts, a lot of surrounding laboratories in the area - like JPL are obviously interesting partners - but also other ones as well. So it’s been a good experience.”

Anna Rissanen, Research Team Leader, VTT Technical research Centre of Finland

“The show is excellent for us, because it really gets us in contact with the systems engineers and people that need to connect their box to another box, or even testing. This year has been especially good for us. It’s been a good show, puts us in contact with the right people. We have a lot of good leads; now it’s time to follow up, but we are very optimistic.”

Tony DeRosa, Sr. Product Manager, Everett Charles Technologies

“ We were looking to mostly to get to the Space Primes, like Orbital ATK, Northrop Grunman, L3 and so on.  So far we’ve met with everybody we wanted to, and a lot that we didn’t know we didn’t know we needed to. We’ve seen a lot of very solid enquiries; we’re already exchanging data with them and signing NDAs, so we’re hoping it’s going to generate real solid business. It has exceeded expectations; we’ve done a lot of tradeshows – this is one of the best ones.”

Peter Adams, President, Burloak Technologies Inc.

"It’s been a very wonderful time here in Pasadena at Space Tech Expo. We came here with multiple check points actually: our first and foremost is to network with customers and potential contacts and we’ve been able to do that very effectively on both the conference side as well as the expo side. We’ve been very, very, very happy with what we’ve seen here so far at the show. We’ve been able to meet a number of people that could be potential suppliers, team mates and then also prospective customers as well."

Larry Strader, Manager, Jacobs

 “Our experience at the show has been good; we’ve had quite a few people come by, we’ve had great success, so I will that say we’ll come back here next year as well.”
