Intergalactic Aerospace Expo

The Intergalactic Aerospace Expo (IAE) is an annual spacecraft exposition that is held in the United Empire of Earth (UEE). Founded in 2670 by spacecraft enthusiast Audrey Timmerman, it was initially held on Castor (Corel IV) until 2847, when the board of directors voted to rotate the location of the IAE each year. This continued until the board voted to permanently host the event on Severus (Kiel III) in the Kiel system in 2913. Spacecraft manufacturers such as Drake Interplanetary, Consolidated Outland, and Origin Jumpworks use the expo to debut new ships and run sales. It is usually held over 10 Standard Earth Days. Starting in 2948, the IAE began hosting satellite events to allow more people to attend with several being hosted in the Stanton system. Since its premiere in 2950, the spectrum show Whitley's Guide runs a special series of episodes on the IAE each year hosted by Jax McCleary.
