TMC Launches Earth Intelligence World Expo in Partnership with Space IT Bridge

New Event to be a part of the 2022 #TECHSUPERSHOW in Florida

Shelton, CT – October 7, 2021 – TMC and Space IT Bridge, today announced the launch of Earth Intelligence World Expo being held June 21 - 24, 2022 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Earth Intelligence World is the first event dedicated to embracing the role of New Space companies as valuable complements to existing business operations, rather than as an add-on to national security and space industry events. Building and launching satellites is cool, but it’s not a core function of the IT shop or the data center.

“We are ecstatic to have Earth Intelligence World Expo be a part of the #TECHSUPERSHOW,” noted Rich Tehrani CEO and Conference Chairman for TMC. “It’s a new era as massive data collection and free market competition is driving down the cost of satellite-collected information, making existing applications cheaper and opening new opportunities for businesses. This new event will help you capitalize on the immediate business opportunity.”

In its 2021 Earth Observation: Data & Services Market report released this week, Euroconsult placed the commercial market for earth observation (EO) data in 2020 at $1.6 billion and growing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5%, with 55% of the total market going to non-defense needs.  With record numbers of EO satellites launched this year, billions of investment dollars raised in SPACs, and EO constellations going into production service, Euroconsult expects the earth observation and services market to grow to $7.5 billion by 2030.

“On a macro scale, New Space companies are shifting the satellite industry from a mainframe model and mentality to a cell phone-style world in terms of relative cost and availability of services,” said Doug Mohney, Editor-in-Chief of Space IT Bridge. “Getting a single picture of somewhere on the planet used to take days and cost thousands of dollars.  Now, it’s a website visit, a credit card to pay, and delivery in hours with opportunities to get views of the same place up to four times a day with hourly availability – and faster – coming soon. Data is driving applications, with individual service providers generating multiple terabytes per day of high-quality information for agriculture, energy, shipping, mining, finance, insurance, urban planning, land management, and disaster recovery, just to name a few areas. “

Earth Intelligence World Expo is a business-focused forum bringing together enterprises and other organizations to learn from New Space service providers about the imaging and data revolution taking place in the skies above and delivered through major cloud providers. You’ll discover petabyte-sized data lakes being filled by hundreds of commercial satellites collecting information in optical, infrared, hyperspectral, radar, and RF bands and how analyst firms and their customers are ingesting multiple sources of data and using the latest AI/ML techniques to provide economic insights and drive business value.

“You don’t have to be a U.S. government agency or have a U.S. government budget to get access to quality business information in a timely fashion,” Mohney said. “Companies such as BlackSky are offering free trials today, enabling businesses to kick the tires on web-accessible, AI-powered imaging services that provide change detection in areas of interest – you can look at what your suppliers are doing in Europe or what your competitors are up to in Asia.” 

The call for papers is now open. The Earth Intelligence World Expo conference program will focus on topics that are important to businesses looking to bypass the hype of space tourism and reusable rockets and embrace the bounty of data being generated by commercial satellites, finding new ways to monitor market conditions, suppliers, competitors, and customers and discovering new opportunities.

TMC and Space IT Bridge are thrilled to be partnering together on this new event. TMCnet’s ability to bring communities together – having hosted conferences and online communities for more than 25 years – combined with Space IT Bridge’s subject-matter expertise creates the can’t-miss enterprise event for earth observation.
