The annual conference of the SEE Lab - The state of the space economy and the new frontiers of tourism in space

May 2019 16:00 - 20:00

The main theme of this year annual conference of the SEE Lab is space tourism.


Space tourism is space travel for recreational, leisure or business purposes. Black’s Law Dictionary states that a tourist is “one who makes a tour; one who travels from place to place for pleasure or culture.” In the future, these suborbital flights could become point-to-point transportation for different purposes from transnational business flights to lunar space tourism. Over time, it is likely that commercial point-to-point space transportation will eclipse space tourism in commercial importance. The conference will address historical aspects regarding the relationship between Tourism and Air Transport industry. High accessibility and lower cost of Air transport were the key factors of increasing international tourism, reflecting in turn the expansion of the air industry.


 The conference will address questions such as:

  • Are the above factors replicable for the suborbital tourism market?
  • Will suborbital flight be a mass tourism or it will remain a niche market?

The event is free upon online registration.
