SSTI 2019 Conference Location, Date and Theme Announced

March 14, 2019

SSTI's 2019 Annual Conference

SSTI is excited to announce we are partnering with the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation to bring you and approximately 300 of your peers to Providence on Sep 9-11 for SSTI’s 2019 Annual Conference. Please hold the date on your calendar – or better yet – go ahead and register now to obtain the lowest possible prices for attendance!

Providence is a creative city that has to be experienced to be believed. With so much public art, rich history, amazing food and cool spaces, nearly every aspect of the city is innovative by design: a perfect location to be inspired.

This year's conference theme plays on being in Providence and the Ocean State, but also celebrates what we truly believe about the work each of you do. You are creating "An Ocean of Opportunity: Transforming Regional Economies" through science, technology innovation, and entrepreneurship.

SSTI conference attendees praise the unique community created each year - allowing conversations and collisions across a more encompassing blend of the multitude of perspectives and players involved in our field that doesn't happen anywhere else. Come see for yourself!
