Networking in the glamour of a royal visit by his Majesty King Willem-Alexander and her Majesty Queen Máxima
An impressive number of Dutch space companies, including Hyperion Technologies travelled to Bremen on 5-6 March 2019. During the trade mission, the Dutch Delegation, joined by Sigrid Kaag, Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, as well as members of the Netherlands Space Office (NSO), had the opportunity to explore collaboration with companies and organisations based in the City of Space: Bremen. Throughout the rich programme, representatives of Hyperion had the chance to get in-depth insights into the German Space Agency (DLR), OHB, Airbus Defence and Space and meet space-related start-ups and associated research institutes.

The high point of the trade mission was marked by a royal visit of his Majesty King Willem-Alexander and her Majesty Queen Máxima, witnessing the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between the State of Bremen, AviaSpace with the Province of South Holland and SpaceNed. The royal couple took the time to be informed on space technology at the Airbus site in Bremen and engaged in conversations with the Dutch delegates. Hyperion Technologies and Dawn Aerospace were particularly proud to present the latest developments of the SmallSat market to Her Majesty, and to present new technologies such as the co-developed green propulsion module to the Queen.
Thanks to the excellent organisation of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RvO), Hyperion is very pleased to have had the opportunity to participate in this one-of-a-kind trade mission. We are looking forward to deepening our relations with the new contacts made in the City of Space.
