Ocean Renewable Energy Conference 2021
Leadership. Experience. Solutions.

SAVE the DATE: September 22 & 23

It is with great excitement, and a little bit trepidation, that POET announces the return of the Ocean Renewable Energy Conference in 2021! Given the pace of vaccinations, we feel it is now reasonable to host our annual conference at its usual time of the year, September. The last year was a challenging time for all of us, however the industry continued to progress and we are eager to bring the marine renewables community back to Portland, Oregon for our annual event.

We plan to follow all state and county health and safety regulations to ensure a safe event and have already been in discussions with venue staff about how we can arrange the space to best accommodate the crowd. We realize that many of you may not be ready to travel and attend an in-person event just yet, thus we will continue to explore virtual opportunities to attend as well. Circumstances are likely to change between now and September, and we will remain flexible with our planning, but we are optimistic that we will be able to host a safe event and bring the industry back together for a long overdue gathering.

We will continue to provide additional information in the coming weeks and months as we approach September, but we are excited to see your friendly (potentially masked) faces again soon.
