We welcomed both Sara Jennings and Aaron Oesterle to the show to discuss the upcoming NewSpace 2014 conference to be held at the Doubletree in San Jose, CA from July 24-26, 2014 in the heart of Silicon Valley. This was a one hour conference promotion program leading off with Sara, the conference chairman for this year, introducing us to the conference and the first day events. Follow the discussion with us at their website, Sara started with the Thursday agenda with a focus on investors, the Lightening Round Pitches, the welcome reception and the keynote later in the day by Art Dula. Also on Thursday, we talked about the Awards Ceremony and near the end of the program, Sara and Aaron announced the winners of this year's awards. We had telephone glitches early in the program, first dropping the call with Sara, then with Aaron. Also, both guests used cell phones which created a few audio issues early on with Aaron. Aaron talked about the Friday program leading off with comments about the Do It Yourself (DIY) space movement which is growing rapidly. Next up we discussed property rights and the planned focus of the panel plus the panel members. On Friday, Andy Aldrin is the lunch speaker and our guests talked about Andy wanting to go to the Moon as did his Dad, Buzz. Andy is now president of the Moon Express. team. Also on Friday, our guests highlighted the lunar panel along with the paradigm shift panel. Saturday, the last day of the conference, our focus was on Donna Edwards as the lunch speaker, then the Gala Event. Our guests pointed out that registration on Thursday and later will be at an increased price so if you are planning to attend, do the online registration prior to the conference first day. We also talked about the Doubletree and the fact that is filling up so act quickly to get the conference rate. Throughout our discussion, we focused on the great networking available throughout the three day event. Doug even sent in an email to support the conference for its excellent networking. In addition, listeners wanted to know if HSF and risk averseness was part of the program and Tony wanted to know about SSP being part of the program. The conference will be live streamed.
