It’s clear the growing space industry is a true benefit for the state of Michigan, and we felt strongly about providing a showcase opportunity here.

"We’ve received lots of positive support for this event, from potential speakers, panelists, and sponsors – all eager to participate,” said Atlas’ Chief Strategy Officer, Mike Carey. “The speakers and panelists we’re booking for Michigan Space [Forum] collectively represent much of the excitement and innovation that’s responsible for the rapid growth in today’s space industry.”
