CTE and Industry Summit 2019 - Salem, OR Convention Center

Summary of Agenda

The 2019 CTE & Industry Summit is a three-day Summit, with add-on options the day before

Each Summit day offers three breakout sessions with many options for you to choose from, a keynote speaker, delicious lunch, and networking opportunities.

We'll announce the add-on options for the Pre-Summit day when early-bird registration opens, September 17, 2018.

Daily Schedule

A different focus for industries each day, but the same daily schedule

Each day, we'll have attendees check-in and grab some breakfast to network at the tables before our first general session at 8:30am. And we'll wrap up our day with networking and visiting vendor tables while enjoying refreshments.

Industries of Focus

Each day we'll highlight different industries

Our goal is to make the Summit as valuable as possible to all of our attendees. The 2018 Summit was great, but we heard your feedback of wanting more focused relevance to each industry. The connection to Industry is key for the CTE & Industry Summit.

To facilitate stronger conversations and connections, we are focusing each Summit day on different industries. This will allow the topics covered in presentations and the networking time to be focused within a smaller set of industries. So, now each day will have specific industries of focus, based around the Oregon Department of Education's Career Learning Areas (you can see the list and click through to more details to see where you might fit best).
