Belgian Space Gathering
January 17th 2019
starting at 18:30
January 17th, when the days are still short and it's freezing outside, you are invited to the warm and joyful first edition of the Belgian Space Gathering. This initiative revives the long tradition of an annual reception where policy makers, senior scientists and captains of industry meet in an informal setting to mark the new year.
Hosted at the top floor of the MAS in Antwerp, you will enjoy live music and gourmet food with a breathtaking view on the city.
The event offers a great opportunity for the Belgian Space Community to raise a toast for 2019 and exchange thoughts on the challenges ahead of us.
Thank you for confirming your attendance
before January 9th 2019.
