We’re excited to be returning to Concreteworks fantastic 85,000sf facility in a former steel factory on the waterfront in Alameda on September 28th for our 2nd annual “Where Craft Meets Innovation: A Market & Showcase” event. Over 40 of our member companies, representing the best of locally made goods, will participate in a Market and Design Showcase. Concreteworks will hold rare factory tours of their facility and their cutting edge concrete fabrication techniques, and Oakland food truck COOL!NARIA will serve delicious Mexican food in an outdoor lounge.
We’re partnering on the Design Showcase with Wescover – the international platform for discovering and connecting with Creators.
