B2B publisher Momentum Media has launched a new awards program, complementing its Space Connect integrated brand.
To be held in December 2019 and supported by principal partner KBR, the Australian Space Awards will recognise the leading individuals and businesses driving the development of Australia’s space economy, including the telecommunications, satellite, energy, mining and transport sectors as well as the defence, agriculture, disaster and water management industries.
According to William Magee, Momentum Media’s Head of Strategy – Defence and Space, the awards program will universally acknowledge all space industry stakeholders from the major listed organisations and corporates servicing Australia’s space economy to SMEs, start-ups, academic institutions and associations.
“It’s a great privilege to announce the launch of the Australian Space Awards. Australia has an exciting future in space, with a raft of talented businesses and individuals all invested in advancing our domestic market as well as projecting Australian industry on the global stage.
“With our domestic space industry expected to triple by 2030 to a value of between $10-12 billion, and explore opportunities abound, recognition of our top performing organisations and professionals will help support business growth plus help attract the best talent to the industry,” he said.
The categories and full award details will be released shortly on the Australian Space Awards website.
Momentum produces a range of awards programs that provide additional revenue streams for its print and digital brands produced for Australia’s financial and professional services. Other awards programs include the Australian Defence Industry Awards, Australian Law Awards, Australian Accounting Awards and the Australian Broking Awards.
