We’d like to share a spectacular announcement

As European Space Foundation together with GRUPA MTP – Poznan Congress Center, Poznań Convention Bureau, Polish Space Agency, THE WAY, Polish Space Industry Association, COTI, and independent international advisors, we are being considered as a host candidate for the renowned International Astronautical Congress in 2026.

POLAND and SPACE are a perfect match

The space sector in Poland and the whole CEE region has significantly evolved in recent years. We are proud members of the European Space Agency. What’s more, Poland is also the 13th signatory of the Artemis Accords declaration from NASA.

POZNAN – the heart of Europe

With its location and history spanning over one thousand years, Poznan is an undiscovered jewel with an offer for everyone. It boasts plenty of historical, cultural, and multinational culinary sites. It’s also well connected either directly or from international hub airports.


Please share the news with your network and keep your fingers crossed for our candidacy. We’d be more than happy to have the opportunity to host you in 2026 – in Poznan, Poland.
