The Northwest’s Premier Cleantech Innovation Conference

In past years, Oregon BEST FEST has addressed themes such as impact across new horizons,
collaboration, informed innovation, and rising to the challenge. The progression of these themes reflects the momentum this conference has helped build toward the region’s strengthening clean technology economy.

The natural next step is to explore Oregon’s strategic cleantech opportunity and in-house capacity — the Oregon Advantage. What does Oregon bring to the table that differentiates us on the national or global stage? What are the natural, intellectual, and business resources we can leverage? Should Oregon be more focused on certain areas because of where we come from as a state and region? How can the state scale up its efforts — the Oregon way? We envision Oregon BEST FEST 2014 to be a rallying point to pursue this opportunity together.

This year’s sixth annual conference features three broad tracks on Oregon Assets, Technology, and a Commercialization Toolkit. The breakfast keynote will be delivered by Cheryl Martin, acting director of the Advanced Research Projects Agency–Energy (ARPA-E) at the U.S. Department of Energy.

To help get you to the event, as an invited guest, please use the special discount code: VIP_DISCOUNT to receive a 30% discount on the overall conference registration which includes both of the above plus lunch and great breakout sessions on September 16.
