Farnborough International Space Show – A message from our CEO


As we enter the final day of Space-Comm Expo 2024, we thought it appropriate to mark the end of an era… The end of Farnborough International as organising partners. We sincerely hoped you enjoyed it. But, in many ways, it’s not the end but the beginning of something new and pioneering…

On the 19 March 2025, we will reassemble for the inaugural Farnborough International Space Show. It’s a new show, truly international in scope but is also very familiar. Let me explain why: yes, it’s new, but it’s the same content team that inspired thousands at Space-Comm, the same delegations’ team that convened the powerful and influential at Space-Comm, naturally it’s the same venue and most importantly of all its inimitable Farnborough International – a brand that has been trusted to deliver for industry again and again for decades.

I know that there are choices to make about which show you should attend in 2025, so I want to talk briefly about our values and purpose.

Farnborough International Space Show is 100% owned by ADS Group, a not-for-profit organisation that is mandated to support the UK space industry. This isn’t a business – it's mission driven, a powerful catalyst for advancing your interests. In short, we’re in it for the right reasons – it’s who we are, what we do and how we do it. This matters.

In short, Farnborough International Space Show is essential, and we hope that you don’t miss out on the opportunity to continue this journey with us. As the saying goes, we won’t be making space shows for anyone else.

Finally, if you need help navigating decisions regarding which shows to attend in 2025 then please reach out now to our team for information on why we are the right choice on: [email protected] or +44 (0)1252 532880.

Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International
