A weeklong series of events designed to bring Oregon’s consumer product ecosystem together for conversation and community building.
Now in its third year, Built Festival 2019 will feature a series of free consumer product industry events during the week (details and more to come over the next couple of weeks) and then a full day ticketed Main Event on Friday, October 11, 2019, at The Redd, where we bring together founders and industry leaders for a series of fireside conversations.
The consumer product ecosystem in Oregon is one that has been stitched together through stories, insights, and collaboration. In that vein, we have set up a series of fireside conversations — conversations that will bridge Oregon’s rich consumer product legacy with the current trends and innovations of today.
