About the Conference

Since 1996, SSTI’s annual conference has grown to become the nation’s largest gathering of the tech-based economic development community. SSTI’s annual conference focuses on creating a climate where economic growth occurs organically through science, technology and innovation. It is our hope that each conference inspires more collaboration, creativity and success across the nation.


Oklahoma City has been selected to host the 2015 SSTI Conference. The event will be held October 26-28, 2015 at the Cox Convention Center.
