The first planning meeting

On Friday April 18th twenty Creative Conference supporters—former board members and a few new faces—met to strategize and kick around some initial ideas for getting the wheels in motion for the re-launch of the Portland Creative Conference. September 6th is the proposed date and the former conference venue (Newmark Theater) is available for us.  There is a lot of detail to work through, but this was a great start.

As the event will be a “beta” re-launch, Steve Gehlen, the architect of the re-launch, has proposed a single-day event which, because of the proximity of dates, would tie-in with other events such as Inverge: the Interactive Convergence Conference, the Time-Based Art Festival and MusicFestNW.
Sub-committees will be meeting in the coming weeks to plan the Organizational Structure, Sponsorship, Program/Presenters, Marketing, Partnerships, and Facilities.
We’ll continue to update this site as things develop.  To be notified as plans take shape, see the various subscription options.  If you would like to help with the planning process, let us know.
