Hello Etsy PDX

A One-Day Conference on Small Business and Sustainability

I Heart Art: Portland and Etsy are proud to announce that we are teaming up to bring you the Hello Etsy PDX conference on September 17, 2011. In one loaded day, we will rock your businesses world with a conference on Small Business and Sustainability.

The conference will mimic the parent summit in Berlin, with topics falling under the umbrella of four categories: The Big Picture, The Product, The Business, and The Market.

The keynote address will be a lively conversation between Duane Sorenson of Stumptown Coffee and Rebecca Pearcy of Queen Bee Creations, moderated by the wonderful Diane Gilleland. The conversation will focus on the importance of finding a growth model that fits your business scale and your future plans.

The rest of the conference sessions will give attendees the choice between three types of workshops: Making, Learning and Discussion. Topics may include staying afloat in a fledgling economy, how to write a business manifesto, how to keep your business sustainable and much, much more.

Due to generous support from Etsy and their sponsors, tickets for this jam-packed day are only $20 (free for PNCA students and alumni and discounted for Museum of Contemporary Craft members), guaranteeing that you’ll have the most bang for your small business buck. Tickets are available through Eventbrite and are on sale now. Session details and presenters are still being determined. Please visit our dedicated Hello Etsy PDX webpage for the most up-to-date information about the conference.
