This week, Galveston County’s Department of Economic Development attended the annual SpaceCom Conference & Exposition. This event brings together America’s commercial space enterprises with governmental departments with a shared goal of working towards expanding space commerce and exploration. 

This marks the fifth iteration of SpaceCom and it is joined by the Department of Energy and the Department of Commerce which have come together in order to further develop this year’s showcase. Through such collaboration, this event continues to draw international pull and is a major boon for Galveston County and the Greater Houston area. 

As commercial opportunities continue to arise within the aerospace industry, our department will ensure that Galveston County remains a targeted destination for business development and work-life enhancement.
