What is IAC 2021?

Once a year the global space community, its major players, its leaders, its decision makers, come together in an iconic meeting of minds, to work towards the advancement, the betterment of all humankind.

High-level stakeholders from space agencies and institutions around the world come together under one roof to exchange information and ideas, to share developments and advances, to swap insights, strategies and rising trends.

The International Astronautical Congress (IAC) is the world’s premier space event. It is a one-of-a-kind assemblage, unmatched in scale and in scope, unequalled in its reach and its attendance, and in 2021, in a first for the country and a first for the entire region, it will be held in the UAE.

As official host of the seventy-first International Astronautical Congress — the IAC 2021 — the UAE will become the first-ever Arab country to host this annual, high profile gathering of the international space industry. Dubai will become the first city in the region to host the event in its seventy-year history.

We at the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) are committed to making this event a resounding success. And we would like to invite you to be a part of this historic moment, to be a part of the UAE’s legacy.
