The organizers of SATELLITE 2017 confirmed today that Jeff Bezos, founder of Blue Origin and founder and CEO of Amazon, will deliver a keynote address to attendees during the Tuesday morning keynote session. Bezos will appear on stage with SATELLITE 2017 Chairman Jeffrey Hill to share his vision of our future in space and share Blue Origin’s exciting new launch vehicle technology.

Jeff Bezos has invested in expanding our ability to access, explore and conduct business in space. Blue Origin is an important part of the rapidly growing, privately-owned U.S. commercial launch services landscape, which today offers more flexible, agile and low-cost options for satellite operators than ever before.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have Jeff Bezos, the founder of Blue Origin and founder and CEO of Amazon, as our special guest keynote speaker at SATELLITE 2017. Jeff’s unending, life-long passion for innovation is clearly embedded in the Blue Origin mission. I’m looking forward to a discussion that will provide attendees with an exclusive look at some very cool rocket technology (along with a few very pleasant surprises) courtesy of Blue Origin,” said Jeffrey Hill, Chairman of SATELLITE 2017.

Bezos is one of 200+ speakers that highlight the most prolific SATELLITE program of all time, which will also feature specialized Forums broken out by several topics and themes, including 5G, cyber-security & interference, engineering, finance, government & military, ground segment, mobility, and innovation. The SATELLITE 2017 conference program is complemented by an Exhibition Floor, consisting of the all-new theater-area, SATELLITE Unveiled, and more than 350 companies from the aerospace community. The complete conference program, networking receptions, and a full list of exhibiting companies can be found here.
