“At the annual SSTI gathering I can always count on interacting with the smart, creative people who are at the forefront of driving innovation-based economic growth in our country.” 

Donn Rubin, BioSTL President & CEO



SSTI’s 2024 Annual Conference is the event for practitioners and policymakers working to strengthen their regions through science, technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship. 

People attend this conference to meet peers from around the country, reconnect with old friends, learn what initiatives are working in other regions, and discuss trends that are important to the industry.

SSTI conferences are driven by attendee engagement. In addition to thought-provoking keynotes, the agenda will include open forums and ample discussion so that you can share your perspective and have your questions answered.
