Tuesday 26 March, IAF Bureau members were invited to CNES’s Head Office in Paris Les Halles for a dinner honouring IAC 2021, which will take place in the French capital city. At the IAF’s General Assembly closing the latest IAC in Bremen, Germany, on Friday 5 October 2018, Paris was chosen as the host city for the 72nd IAC in 2021.
Speaking at this dinner, CNES and IAF President Jean-Yves Le Gall commented: “CNES was a prime mover behind Paris’s candidacy to host IAC 2021, and this choice is a testament to France’s leading role in the international space arena. IAC 2021 will offer a great opportunity for France’s space programme to raise its international profile. As the agency’s President, I felt it was my duty to underline and honour this fine prospect with you, and I thank you all for being here. I look forward to IAC 2021 being an exceptional event, and I can assure you that CNES is pulling out all the stops to make it an outstanding success.”
