On April 14, 2018, SpaceUp unconference took place in Lima, Peru, at “Universidad de Ingeniería y Tecnología”.
SpaceUp Peru was organized with the help of several institutions: The Mars Society Peru Chapter, Universidad de Ingeniería y Tecnología (UTEC), Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC), and the Peruvian Space Agency (CONIDA).
UTEC was responsible for the most of the logistics, mainly for the setup of the auditorium and the room for the participants’ talks. CONIDA’s support was in providing souvenirs for the participants as well as an inviting a guest from their CNOIS facilities who gave a talk about the satellite PeruSat-1.
The Mars Society Peru Chapter was in charge of the program and media management prior to the event. The institution also worked on the search for the funds needed for the materials. Space Generation Advisory Council supported the event promoting it through social media and the Peruvian mailing list of the organization.
The event was attended by almost 100 participants.
