What is Space Happy Hour?

Space Happy Hour is a gathering of Space Industry Professionals at a regular cadence, typically once a month. Some events are hosted by companies manufacturing space craft and other space related activities, others are held at bars, breweries or other gathering places. While there are typically introductions and some brief announcements (5-10 minutes) the focus of Space Happy Hour is networking; find your next career, a hard-to-find vendor, a place for start-ups and VCs to connect, or just geek out on all the amazing projects in the space industry.

When is the next event?

Boston, Seattle, London currently have events monthly. Washington D.C. launched October of 2023 and Los Angeles and Denver are targeting launch in Q1 of 2024.

What are the benefits of hosting Space Happy Hour?

Space Happy Hour is an amazing recruitment opportunity. After an event hosted at Blue Origin in March of 2023, three candidates, who were directly connected at the event, were in the final interview round just a month later. For events hosted at your company, guests self-select if they are interested in employment and in being contacted by a recruiter at your company. As a host, you get access to that list.


What is involved in hosting Space Happy Hour?

You provide drinks, snacks, and a gathering location for the event. Space Happy Hour takes care of promoting the event, managing event registration, communicating event logistics, and providing name labels for attendees. How many people attend Space Happy Hour? Typically, attendance ranges from 75 to 125. We can work with venues that can accommodate as few as 50 people and have hosted as many as 150+ people, depending on venue capacity constraints at your location.
