spaceport

Thousands of technologies and solutions we use every day, come from the space industry.

From computer microchips to ear thermometers and freeze dried food. From joysticks and smoke detectors to navigation systems, mobile phone networks and internet access everywhere. Technology transferred from space programs surrounds us in our everyday life.

Earth observation data, machine learning and automation will change how we work, how we manage our resources and assets and give birth to entirely new classes of products and services that does not exist today. We will be able to not only monitor and report, but predict with precision and act on real insight.

Spaceport Norway is an arena where you will discover new technology and services that might enhance or transform how you work and manage your business, where you might find new customers or partners, where you will be inspired to the take the next step.

World speakers from leading organisations around the globe will give you 3 days with new knowledge and insights, and most important: new business opportunities.

Over the last 50 years Norway has been a force in high technology industrial development, and produced world leading and innovative companies like Kongsberg Gruppen, Statoil and Telenor. Companies developing and commercialising cutting edge defence technology, world leading networked ground stations, global telecom services for a wide range of markets, and of course: oil, gas and energy.

The oil and gas industry has been instrumental to this development and has shaped a true international environment for business and technology development, as well as fostering a culture for open innovation and collaboration across geographical borders and business sectors.

Stavanger, located on the scenic west coast, has one of the strongest clusters of technology companies in the country and is also home to one of the world’s largest oil and technology exhibition & conference, ONS. This is where we will host the first Spaceport Norway.

Close to spectacular nature, magic nordic light, deep fjords and pristine beaches. In a city that is aspiring to be one of the beacons of smart urbanity in Europe. Stavanger Forum is our venue with premium facilities and rooms for the most spectacular exhibitions, providing a total of more than 30.000 m2 of exhibition space. Stavanger Forum has the expertise, capacity and tools needed for a high quality global event, having being the technical provider for the ONS conference for decades.
