Uniting two chief economic drivers in the state, the Oregon Brownfields & Infrastructure Summit brings together those working to make contaminated properties economically viable for reuse and demonstrate the interconnectedness of basic infrastructure with community and economic development.

Presented jointly by Business Oregon and the Northwest Environmental Business Council, this unique educational event connects property owners, developers, community leaders, regulators, financiers and service providers to share the latest knowledge and best practices, develop business, and foster partnerships.
