The annual International Space Development Conference starts this Thursday through Sunday in Los Angeles and will feature 15 talks and 2 panels on the Space Elevator. Speakers include Brad Edwards, Ben Shelef, Tom Nugent, Geoff Landis, Blaise Gassend and many more. There will also be space elevator mock up by the SpaceWard Foundation and an update on the Space Elevator Games.
The conference is hosted by the National Space Society and the Planetary Society and I expect there will be a good turnout, perhaps more than 700 people. Other featured speakers include;
Deputy Administrator, NASA

The first space tourist
3rd private citizen to visit ISS
