Join us on 12 & 13 June 2024 in Brussels and online for the 2024 edition of EXPANDEO! 

Unlocking the full potential
of Earth Observation in Europe

We are happy to invite you to EXPANDEO 2024! EXPANDEO, the European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (EARSC)’s annual event, where the market meets, provides a key platform for European Earth Observation companies, institutional actors and various other stakeholders to interact and network, learn about current policies and their impact on the industry, as well as reflect on challenges and explore new horizons.

12th–13th June 2024 in Brussels!

Le Bouche à Oreille

Rue Félix Hap 11, 1040 Etterbeek

As we celebrate the 5th edition of EXPANDEO, the 10th edition of the EARSC Awards and the 35th anniversary of our association, we look forward to welcoming you in Brussels and online.
This year’s edition will focus on “reaching new heights”, or how policy, the green transition, commercialisation and international partnerships can come together to foster new market opportunities and put our industry on an exponential line of further growth. 
The 2023 EARSC Industry Survey showed that the Earth Observation (EO) sector continues to grow at a rate of 7.5% per annum. In order to better understand how to maintain and boost this growth rate, EXPANDEO 2024 will address some of the key drivers of further growth: policy requirements, demands from public authorities and the needs of the green transition. In addition, we will look into one of the key challenges for the EO industry (as also reflected in the Industry Survey): attracting and retaining investment.
On top of these drivers and key challenges, the European Earth Observation sector is also having to adapt to a new reality, where existing partnerships are questioned, and new ones are increasingly difficult to forge. Looking at these questions through the lens of market characteristics and market access, we will delve into global and regional dynamics, exploring avenues for cooperation and cross-fertilisation.
