A Conference on the Science of Brewing

Beer and science are intersecting in interesting ways these days (just take a look at the cool things Happy Valley-based sensor company TZero is doing). That’s the theme of this year’s 6th Annual Mid Atlantic Brewers’ Symposium.

The two-day symposium will focus on the changing science of brewing, Nov. 1–3.

The State of Oil & Gas Post-Covid

Both an in-person and live-streamed event, the Upstream PA 2020 conference will look at the oil & gas industry and its post-COVID future through the lens of working in one of the most desirable oil & gas locations in the world, the Appalachian Basin.

And Looking Ahead to 2021…

Go ahead and mark your calendars now for one of Happy Valley’s can’t-miss industry events, the Venture & IP Conference, April 15–16, 2021, which brings together nearly 100 startup ventures representing high growth and emerging markets, including advanced manufacturing, biotechnology and energy.
