NATIONAL TECHNOLOGY-BASED ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE TO TAKE PLACE DEC. 3-5 IN SALT LAKE CITY

USTAR will host the State Science & Technology Institute (SSTI) national conference in Salt Lake City on December 3-5 at the Downtown Marriott at City Creek.

The conference, which will spotlight Utah’s technology-based innovation landscape, will bring thought leaders and decision makers to the state from across the country to discuss the latest developments in creating an effective ecosystem for science and technology innovation, and entrepreneurship.

“We are excited to bring the conference to Salt Lake City, and we think attendees will have a lot to learn from the growing technology hub,” said Dan Berglund, president and CEO of SSTI. “Many places are struggling with ways to grow their innovation economies and Salt Lake City has been able to turn those struggles into positive growth that people will be able to experience during the conference.”

SSTI, a national nonprofit, provides a forum for decision makers responsible for developing and implementing local and state-level policies that contribute to the nation’s competitiveness in technology-based economic development. Members include government, industry, and educational organizations.

Others partnering with USTAR to bring the conference to Utah include the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development, the University of Utah, and World Trade Center Utah.  Sponsorship opportunities are available by contacting Barbie Converse at bconverse@utahmediagroup.com.

Topics for this conference include capital attraction, workforce and talent management, cluster development models, and support of emerging technology sectors.

Registration for the event is now open. A full agenda and additional information can be found at https://2018.ssticonference.org/
