ISS Forum 2001
Besides serving as a platform for Research and Development, the International Space Station is also open for business. The three-day ISS Forum 2001, held in Berlin between 5 and 7 June, will show you just how open.
At the Forum, you can enjoy a 3-D virtual reality tour of the ISS. A visit to ISS Forum 2001 is almost as good as a visit to the station itself - and you make more useful contacts too. The Forum will also cost you a good deal less than the $20 million paid by space tourist Dennis Tito for his ISS trip. You can meet many of the key people behind the project. These include leading figures in the US, European, Russian, Japanese and Canadian space agencies, as well as the three astronauts who formed the station's first crew.
As a piece of orbiting engineering, the ISS is unique. So are the opportunities it can offer to companies on the leading edge of 21st-century business. At the Forum, you can join seminars led by recognized experts on business sectors from biotechnology to marketing, from material science to information technology.
The current crew will also join in some discussions, live from orbit. There will be hands-on exhibitions of ISS hardware, too, with multi-media presentations of research, development and commercial projects that are already under way.
