Bringing Industry Space Days online

Further to Design & Data GmbH’s work with the ESA SME Office to generate awareness for the Industry Space Days (ISD) 2020, we worked to bring this event online for the first time.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and related health and travel concerns, the on-site ISD was postponed by a year. The next Industry Space Days at ESA/ESTEC will take place in September 2021. Even though the physical event cannot be held this year, we recently worked with the ESA SME office to find an alternative way for organising the ISD 2020. On 16-17 September 2020, the event went virtual!

The ISD was organised by the ESA SME Office to foster cooperation between different actors in the entire space sector. During the online ISD, companies and organisations attended pre-scheduled online business-to-business (B2B) meetings using the third party application – Vimeet.

Based on our experience with our OnePoint solution for creating online virtual events, we worked with ESA to deliver the web-streamed conference part of the online ISD. On 16 September, the event was opened by our moderator together with the ESA Director General and included presentations and round tables involving ESA top management, prime operators and industry associations. Listeners could send in questions, which were answered by presenters. Replay the livestream recording here.
