MPIF Industry Development Board Chairman Scott Davis, Hoeganaes Corporation, shared his perspective on the upcoming PowderMet2022 & AMPM2022 conferences to be held June 12-15 in Portland, Oregon.
What is the big deal about Portland, Oregon?
This is a new city for MPIF. Portland, like Austin, Texas, share the similar “Keep Portland Weird” slogan, and the city lives up to its slogan. I recently vacationed in Oregon, and Portland is a fabulous city. The Portland light rail and streetcar transportation systems make the different areas of the city easily accessible. Every type of ethnic food is represented, and Portland has arguably the best microbreweries in the U.S. The city is rich with logging history, and where else can you find a city named after a coinflip? You really would have to work at not having a good time in Portland.
