Every September, the cleantech community gathers for Oregon BEST FEST, the Pacific Northwest’s premier cleantech innovation conference. Our signature event convenes a diverse audience of university researchers, entrepreneurs, industry leaders, and more to accelerate solutions to environmental challenges. This two-day, hands-on gathering harnesses Oregon’s spirit of innovation in sustainability to improve the world’s ability to live, work, and build in healthier and more sustainable ways.
In this year’s program, a range of regional and national speakers will present transformative ideas and innovative solutions meant to inspire and provoke dialogue. Presentations and collaborative workshops will focus on rapidly transforming cutting-edge research into new clean technologies, companies, and jobs. The audience will have opportunities to meet with presenters and rate some of Oregon’s top cleantech startups.
Last year's conference featured a diverse program and dozens of speakers focused on collaborative research, development, and commercialization of clean technologies.
