Spark 2019 Innovation Showcase

Presented By:

What is the Innovation Showcase?

The Innovation Showcase consists of two parts.

The first part is Stream 5 of the program – Carbon Positive Lessons Learned: Project Successes and Learnings – which will highlight innovative, clean-technology projects that were nominated by ERA’s Trusted Partner network. Presentations will be divided among four 75-minute breakout sessions, in alignment with ERA’s Technology Roadmap Focus Areas.

The second part to the Innovation Showcase is the showcase itself! These open and engaging displays will be set up in Hall D Foyer for the duration of the conference. Over 30 displays will be hosted in this location showcasing nominated projects, ERA Trusted Partners and other conference partners.

Stream 5 Presenters & Projects
