SSTI Annual Conference moving to spring 2022

In addition to the information we share through our in-person gatherings, one of the key elements of our conferences has always been the connections we make, both old and new. We always strive to bring you the best possible experience at our Annual Conference, and we know from your feedback that being able to meet in-person and network is something you value as highly as we do. As an organization with science at its core, we've been following where the science leads us throughout the pandemic. With the high level of contagion of the delta variant and the CDC's guidance that vaccinated people wear masks indoors in areas with significant and high spread, we've come to the conclusion that it is best for us to postpone our Annual Conference until spring of 2022.

At that time, we hope conditions will change, including a significantly higher percentage of the population getting vaccinated, so that we will be able to present our Annual Conference the way we always have.

We're working out the details on the new dates of the conference and hope to share that news with you very soon.

While we won't be meeting in person this year, you can anticipate a series of webinars and Zoom meetings throughout fall 2021 and winter 2022 to keep you abreast of the rapidly changing environment for creating a better future through science, technology, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Stay tuned for more details!

We are excited to announce that SSTI’s annual conference is back and in-person, Nov. 1-3, in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Change of date on SSTI’s 2020 Annual Conference

Please mark your calendars for Oct. 5-7, 2020, as the new date for SSTI’s Annual Conference. Because our rooms were overbooked for the previous dates, we have moved the conference up a week. The Little Rock Marriott has dropped the room rate to $129 to accommodate any inconvenience this may have caused.

Little Rock site for SSTI’s 2020 Annual Conference!

SSTI Annual Conference highlights innovation happening across the country

SSTI’s Annual Conference in Providence, Rhode Island, held September 9-11, showcased successful programs, addressed challenges and examined trends and new developments across the innovation economy. We always like to welcome back old friends and are encouraged to see new faces. Said one long-time attendee, “I used to say this is the place to network with the most experienced and sophisticated practitioners. I’m pleased to see the blend of young people coming now, so I would say that SSTI brings together the young and seasoned for very effective conversation and exchange of ideas.”
