Highlight your innovations to industry and academic scientists and leaders in the green chemistry community!
In keeping with the 2018 conference theme, Product Innovation Using Greener Chemistries, the ACS Green Chemistry Institute is inviting companies to participate in a unique event—a green chemistry product innovation showcase.
Integrated into our popular GC&E Poster Session & Reception, the Showcase will feature companies who are using the design principles of green chemistry and engineering to create or contribute to innovative products. Participating companies will present a “hands-on” display of the product and describe the products greener technical innovations.

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”.
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.
Where and when is the event?
The GC&E Product Showcase will be held as part of the 22nd Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference’s Poster Session & Reception 4:35-6:45 p.m on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at the Downtown Portland Hilton in Portland, Oregon.
How are submissions evaluated?
All submissions will be reviewed by the Product Showcase session chairs, whom will evaluate them based on the submission criteria. Acceptance notifications will go out in early April 2018.
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.
