RX Japan, renowned as Japan's premier exhibition organizer, is proud to announce the launch of SPEXA, the Space Business Expo, slated to take place from April 24-26, 2024, at Tokyo Big Sight, Japan. 

SPEXA, dedicated to fostering collaboration and innovation in the space industry, stands as a testament to Japan's commitment to advancing space exploration and technology. With the theme "Bridging Japan and the World's Space Business," SPEXA aims to unite global companies and professionals in the pursuit of space-related opportunities. 

The decision to launch SPEXA stems from the tremendous potential of the space sector, which is projected to reach a market value of $1 trillion (140 trillion yen) by 2040. RX Japan anticipates that SPEXA will play a pivotal role in driving growth and establishing Japan as a key player in the global space industry. 

“We extend an invitation to all those who are interested in advancing the space business or exploring new opportunities to join us and engage with exhibitors specializing in pivotal areas including development support, satellite data utilization, and space-related services,” said Hajime Suzuki, Executive Officer for Global Relations at RX Japan. 

Unlike other space-related events focused on conferences, research, and development, SPEXA seeks to transcend boundaries by bridging the gap between the space industry and other mainstream sectors. By transforming the space industry into a vibrant business arena, SPEXA aims to unlock new opportunities and drive innovation across various industries. 

To achieve this, SPEXA will feature a diverse array of exhibitors, including leading Japanese startups and businesses exploring space-related ventures. With a focus on showcasing cutting-edge products, technologies, and services, SPEXA will facilitate collaborations between stakeholders from different sectors, fostering healthy competition and driving industry growth. 

Key exhibitors are eager to leverage SPEXA as a platform to propel their space initiatives forward and foster synergies within the global space community.
