22nd Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference | June 18-20, 2018 | Portland, Oregon

How much do I have to pay to participate?

There is no cost to submit your abstract/product for the product showcase. If you abstract/product is selected, you must register for the GC&E Conference. You may elect to attend the full conference, just the day of the event (Tuesday), or, if you are only coming to present at the Product Showcase, a special registration rate of $100 will be available ($195 off one-day rate). See gcande.org/register for more information. We encourage companies to also consider sponsorship or exhibitor opportunities. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

Product Showcase presenters will have the option to use a provided poster display board, table, or can bring their own tablet.

Who attends the conference?

The Poster Session & Reception is well-attended by all conference goers as there are no other events scheduled at this time—and who turns down a free reception anyway? If you have never attended GC&E, it’s a great audience! The Conference attracts a cross section of scientific leaders from industry and academia as well as students, government scientists and others. We expect over 500 people to attend the Conference.

What kind of products can be submitted?

We are inviting submissions from start-ups & early-stage companies through established B2B and B2C brands. We would like B2B companies to bring an example(s) of the end consumer product. For example, if you create biobased plastics, bring an example of its application. The product showcase should be “hands on”.
