GlobalPDX Conference | October 24, 2019 | Portland State University

GlobalPDX Conference 2019

Our third annual conference will take place at the Smith Memorial Student Union. In 2018, nearly 160 people from across Oregon attended the conference representing a wide range of non-profits, businesses and universities. At the conference, participants have an opportunity to engage in multiple networking opportunities, workshops, panel discussions, and plenary sessions.

Sponsorship Opportunities

The conference offers opportunities to learn, network, collaborate and exhibit amongst development professionals from across Oregon. It will consist of multiple networking opportunities (including an evening reception and poster session), workshops, panel discussions, facilitated knowledge sharing and a forum focused on fostering partnership and collaboration.

Support towards this conference will be of significant importance to Oregon’s development community and will contribute to elevating the impact we can each have on poverty alleviation around the world while protecting the planet. Conference sponsors will benefit from visibility and access to conference events. We anticipate an audience of approximately 200 people representing both the public and private sectors, academia and government. Conference participants are thought-leaders in the field of international development representing organizations that work in multiple countries around the world, practitioners who spend time in the field, researchers seeking solutions to global challenges grounded in science, and funders interested in investing for impact.
