Every September, the cleantech community gathers in Portland for Oregon BEST FEST, the Pacific Northwest’s premier cleantech innovation conference. Our signature event attracts hundreds of university researchers, entrepreneurs, industry leaders, and more to envision, build, and accelerate solutions to environmental challenges. The two-day, hands-on gathering is focused on collaborative research, development, and commercialization of clean technologies that will deliver prosperity to Oregon and the region.
Oregon BEST FEST:
Showcases cleantech innovation taking place across research, business, and government;
Catalyzes collaboration across sectors to move us closer solving our most pressing environmental challenges.
The program features a range of regional and national speakers, research presentations, and interactive workshops focused on creating jobs through cleantech innovation and filling the gaps in developing new products and services.
