However, this isn’t their first collaboration with the Planetary Society and Billy Nye, The Pasadena Convention & Visitors Bureau recently worked closely on a citywide video focusing on Pasadena’s innovative spirit at institutions such as Caltech, JPL, the ArtCenter College of Design, Mount Wilson Observatory and Kidspace Children’s Museum.

In its supportive video Billy Nye announced, “For decades, Pasadena has been the birthplace of space exploration and award-winning engineers and scientists who continue to uncover new details about our solar system,” said Jeanne O’Grady Goldschmidt, Executive Director of the Pasadena Convention & Visitors Bureau. “It’s important to showcase the city’s contribution as a leader in innovation because it aids in tourism and is one of the many reasons why we continue to attract several events and meetings within those fields,”

CVB will welcome the Council of Engineering and Scientific Executives and COSPAR for two scientific meetings in July, making it the world’s largest international gathering of scientists to promote scientific research in space.
