Opening Night Reception to Showcase Generosity, Spirit of Our Maryland Sponsors

September 05, 2007

A fun-filled evening of music, drinks and scrumptious hor d'oeurves awaits participants of SSTI's conference with the opening reception at the Marine Mammal Pavilion of the world-famous National Aquarium in Baltimore. This festive event is possible due to the generosity of Team Maryland, a group of 21 Maryland organizations supporting technology-based economic development in their state and region:

  • Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development
  • Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO)
  • University System of Maryland (USM)
  • Forest City Science + Technology Park at Johns Hopkins
  • Battelle
  • Wexford Science & Technology, LLC
  • ANGLE Technology Group
  • Greater Baltimore Committee
  • Greater Baltimore Technology Council
  • The Johns Hopkins University
  • Maryland Chamber of Commerce
  • Maryland Economic Development Association
  • Maryland Economic Development Corporation
  • Mid-Atlantic Venture Association (MAVA)
  • Regional Visioning Group
  • Research Parks Maryland
  • Tech Council of Maryland
  • Toucan Capital Corp.
  • University of Maryland
  • University of Maryland, Baltimore
  • University of Maryland, Baltimore County

Just a short stroll from the hotel, the pavilion is home to the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins and the exhibit, Frogs! A Chorus of Colors! While the opening reception begins Wednesday night, Oct. 17, at 6:00 p.m, attendees are invited to take a self-guided public tour of the entire aquarium, beginning at 5 p.m. and ending at 6:30 p.m. When entering the venue, simply mention that you are a guest of the SSTI conference.

The opening reception affords a wonderful, relaxed environment to reconnect with colleagues and network with other conference attendees, speakers and our local hosts. Please arrange your travel plans for the conference to join us for the fun!
