Space Access ’15 Conference Site Set, Registration Open
April 30th – May 2nd
Radisson Hotel Phoenix North Conference Hotel

We now have a site under contract for SA’15, Space Access Society’s next annual conference on the business, technology, and politics of radically cheaper access to space.

We’ll be at the Radisson Hotel Phoenix North, 10220 N Metro Parkway E in Phoenix Arizona, with Space Access conference room rates of $99 a night plus tax, rate includes a 25% discount on the hotel full-breakfast buffet. Click on this link to reserve your room at our rate, or call the Radisson at 602 997-5900 and ask for the “Space Access Conference” rate (good for up to three days before and after our dates.)

(Attendees at SA’13 may recognize the address – yes, this is the same location, with a wide variety of restaurants and shopping a short walk away, extensively renovated under a new owner. And yes, it took a little longer than we’d planned – it turns out having the Super Bowl in town is a major distraction for hotel staffs, doubly so for hotels reopening post-renovation two weeks before.)

Conference Schedule

Our upcoming conference will (as usual) feature a cross-section of the growing cheap access community, talking about what’s going on now and what we should be doing next, in a fast-paced intensive informal atmosphere. We’ll be starting programming at 2 pm Thursday 4/30, running (with breaks) till ~10 pm, Friday 5/1 9 am till ~10 pm, then Saturday 5/2 9 am till ~6 pm with hanging out, talking and partying to follow till late. Our overall schedule will include roughly twenty-one hours on the latest and most interesting developments in this fast-moving field.

Conference Registration

SA’15 registration remains at $120 in advance, $140 at the door, student rate $40 in advance and $50 at the door. Day rates Thu/Fri/Sat will be $60/$60/$60 and $20/$20/$20 student, and will be available at the door only. You can register in advance by mailing a check, along with your name, email, and desired organization name (if any) for your badge to Space Access ’15, PO Box 16034, Phoenix AZ 85011, or register online via Paypal or your credit card.

Supporting The Conference

As for SA’15 conference funding, we’re now up over fifty-three hundred of the ten thousand we need to make this conference fly. Thanks! If you believe that Space Access conferences are useful to this community, and that keeping conference prices as low as possible for all of us who are still students, hungry amateurs, or tight-budget startup pros is still the way to go, help, please. Donate online, or send a donation of whatever size – ten, a hundred, a thousand, it all helps – via check to: Space Access Society, PO Box 16034, Phoenix AZ 85011.

(Note that this is NOT tax-deductible, as we are not a 501c-anything. It is however entirely confidential, as we have never and will never share or disclose in any way our supporters’ names. Our ongoing gratitude goes out to all who’ve supported us over the years and who continue to help.)

(Keep an eye on SA’15 Info for preliminary details on the conference agenda in the next week or so.)
