SUTUS 2022: The first space hotel planned for 2027 and the screation of citie in space are among the projects.


The world space and underwater tourism Summit reiterates its
success with the celebration of the third edition of this pioneering event bringing together
prestigious institutions and international stakeholders in space and underwater qualifications on 28,
29 and 30 September at Les Roches Marbella.
Last year saw the beginning of a revolution in the history of the cosmos. Jeff Bezos, founder of
Amazon, flew his rocket to an altitude of 106 kilometers for ten minutes, ushering in the era of
commercial space travel. The search for original and personalized experiences is propelling the
future of luxury tourism towards new destinations that cross known borders, reaffirming the
entrenchment of premium tourism across the world.

Luxury tourism in Europe is in fact worth between 130,000 and 170,000 million euros a year, 22%
of the sector’s total income, according to consultancy firm Bain & Company.
Taking place in a hybrid format, with the first day in person and two other virtual days, SUTUS
(“Space & Underwater Tourism Universal Summit”) has positioned itself as the benchmark forum
for the world’s main space agencies, last year attracting the American NASA, the European Space
Agency (ESA) and the Japanese JAXA. They will be joined this year by the International Space
University (ISU), the Space Tourism Society (STS) and the Swiss Space Tourism Agency (Swiss
Space Tourism).

As far as the business sector is concerned, more than 30 companies will be present to present the
progress of their projects. All of these enjoy international recognition and nurture ambitious plans,
some of them even already put into practice.
Orbital Assembly, the first hotel with accommodation for tourists in space, Space VIP, is
dedicated to “space literacy” and inspiring the next generation of private astronauts, Axiom
Space, which aims to create cities in space, and the Space Tourism Society, focused on
“commercializing” the growing range of space experiences (real spaceflight, movies, games
and even virtual worlds), are just a few examples.
A number of women such as Nancy Vermeulen, private astronaut trainer at the Space Training
Academy, and retired astronaut commander Susan Kilrain, who will talk about her experience
beyond planet Earth, will also be present.
Meanwhile, the still unexplored marine world will be evoked by international speakers such as
Fabien Cousteau and his International Ocean Station, which is slated to be operational by
2026; Aaron Olivera, founder and CEO of Earth 300, a global environmental and scientific project
created in a futuristic superyacht whose main objective is to combat climate change; and
Scott Waters, president of Pisces VI Submarine, who will talk about diving tourism in the
Canary Islands.

The creation of the Spanish Space Agency (AEE) is the main theme of the Spanish presence at
the third edition of this pioneering international summit. Álvaro Giménez Cañete, Special Delegate
for the Spanish Space Agency, will be responsible for presenting the action plan for the creation of
this new organization, whose headquarters a dozen cities – including Seville, Tres Cantos
(Madrid), Teruel, León, Puertollano (Ciudad Real) – as well as the Canary Islands are vying to
In addition, this annual event will welcome renowned speakers such as underwater archaeologist
Carlota Pérez Reverte, aspiring ESA astronauts Carmen García-Roger and Jorge Pla-García as
well as Spanish companies internationally renowned in the space race. The latter will include
Green Moon Project, an undertaking committed to space agriculture as an asset for all
humanity; and Zero 2 Infinity, a company that develops high-altitude balloons to provide
access to the area around space and the low-Earth orbit using a capsule and launcher
transported by balloons.
Organized by Les Roches Marbella, a leading hotel training school in our country and one of the
most important in the world, together with Medina Media Events, the event will host a
demonstration area on the Marbella campus where representatives of each company participating
will be able to present their tourism-related projects, thus opening up the experience to all those
visiting the school’s facilities.
Carlos Díez de la Lastra, CEO of Les Roches, says: “We are delighted that we have managed to
bring the best agencies and representatives of the most exciting projects in the world to this
congress, the most important in the world in the discussion of tourism in the two borders we have
over our heads and under our feet”.

Virtual attendees and registered companies will be able to follow all sessions via streaming and
schedule video meetings with other participants and speakers, as well as visit exclusive online
demos. All details, along with the official agenda and registration for the three days are now
available through the Medina Media Events platform.
