February Recap: Wine & WAHESC

by

February was an exciting month for the Social Enterprises team, as we were busy with two incredibly successful sustainable events.


Washington Higher Education Sustainability Conference 

WAHESC17_EmailHeaderFirst we headed Spokane, Washington for the Washington 16991617_10154713457379342_8466497003933360384_oHigher Education Sustainability Conference (WAHESC) hosted by Gonzaga University. WAHESC is a regionally focused event for those teaching, working, or studying within higher education to come together and learn about sustainability in academics, operations, and research.

The event had over 200 students, 400 attendees and nearly 100 speakers, including 25 students speakers, who offered insights on current issues facing college institutions.

We were blown away by the ideas shared and collaborations sparked around advancing sustainability on our campuses and in our communities!

For the second year, our team collaborated with the Oregon Wine Board to present the
2017 Oregon Wine Symposium here in Portland. Once again, it was the premier educational and trade show
event for the Northwest wine community, with over 1,300 attendees and more than 170 exhibitors.

At the Oregon Wine Soiree, attendees ate, drank and mingled with speakers sponsor and peers while they tasted wines from around Oregon.

Our team loved putting together this event and are proud to announce that it was an overwhelming success!
