About the PA Brownfields Conference!
The ESWP was pleased to again partner with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection in presenting the 2020 Pennsylvania Brownfields Conference.
Held at State College, PA in the Penn Stater Hotel & Conference Center over March 9-11, almost 400 participants attended the conference. This year we attracted 55 vendors to the exhibit hall making it the highest attended in our history. In addition, attendees were able to select from over 20 different presentations and three general sessions which included state and federal updates on Brownfields programs, a futures forecast, and an informative, educational, and uplifting story on one business’s success that chose a brownfield as a place to build and expand their business.

We would also like to acknowledge the U.S. EPA for presenting two workshops on grant applications that were of great interest to conference attendees. Also, for the first time, we hosted the gathering of the Central Appalachian Regional Brownfields (CABIN) Summit, a gathering of stakeholders and practitioners from the Appalachian region. Big thanks to all of our sponsors who support the conference and provide the many niceties enjoyed by all attendees! And finally, thank you to the members of the Conference planning committee for their efforts in organizing a terrific conference!
