Apply for an exhibit booth

We typically have more requests for exhibit booths than we can accommodate due to space constraints. We invite exhibiting companies to apply to participate between January 23 to February 6. Companies with credit are given priority. Credit can be obtained in the following ways:

  • Exhibit at the Conference - 5 credits per year
  • Sponsorships - 2 credits per year
  • Donation to Student Competition of $500 or more - 2 credits per year
  • Open Industry Party - 2 credits per year

Exhibit Placement Details: Companies are placed according to credits accumulated as of January 1st, 2023. Credits are calculated cumulatively from years 1992-present. To earn credits that apply for SmallSat 2023 you can still donate $500 or more to the student competition.

New exhibiting companies that apply will be entered into a weighted lottery. Any new company with sponsorship or donation credits, or companies that have applied in previous years, will be weighted heavier in the lottery.

Purchase a sponsorship

Sponsorships for 2023 will be announced in December. Companies can register for a sponsorship starting Feb. 7, 2023. Sponsorships are available to any organization, regardless of exhibit participation, and are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
