Come join us for an evening of networking, learning, and continuing discussion on topical space issues at the world class Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Designed by architect Antoine Predock, the museum's architectural features take inspiration from Canada's open scenery and natural landscape, and serves as the setting for the Summit 2016 Gala Dinner.
Guests will have an opportunity to tour the first four galleries of the museum and enjoy a cocktail reception in the museum's Garden of Contemplation. A three-course dinner will be served in Buhler Hall while invited speakers engage the audience in space related presentations.
The Summit 2016 Gala Dinner is an excellent opportunity for members of the public, academics, industry professionals, and conference delegates to network and socialize.
