Supported by the South Australian Government and the Adelaide Convention Bureau, The Andy Thomas Space Foundation is collaborating on a bid for the 75th International Astronautical Congress to be held in Adelaide in 2024.

Adelaide received global recognition for its highly successful hosting of the 2017 event, which generated $24 million in economic benefit and created 229 jobs.

The Congress attracts more than 4000 International business delegates, and leaders of the global space sector and space research as speakers.

International Astronautical Federation member, the Adelaide-based Andy Thomas Space Foundation will lead the bid through the support and management of the Adelaide Convention Bureau.

Mr Michael Davis AO Chair of the Andy Thomas Space Foundation said that “Adelaide has the advantage of being the nation’s Space epicentre in Australia and more important the track record of hosting an outstandingly successful congress in 2017 which is fresh in the memory of the world space leaders.”
