The Maine Beaches Conference was ushered in with the new century in 2000 and in 2015 we will celebrate our tenth conference. In 2015, we expect to host well over 200 participants. Over those years, we have worked to provide continuing opportunities for communication and exchange of the most current information among beach stakeholders with diverse interests and to present the findings from the state’s beach monitoring programs.
2015 Conference Program Under Development
We had an overwhelming response to the call for presentations and exhibits - stay tuned for the draft program in late March 2015.
Since 2000, The Maine Beaches Conference has served as the meeting place for beach stakeholders with diverse interests. The conference attracts more than 200 participants representing everyone from recreational beach goers, to government officials at all levels and is quoted as being "one of the best opportunities to reach coastal property and coastal business owners."
