Big Blue Conference
The Cape Cod Blue Economy Foundation’s second annual Big Blue Conference is going to be electric! The two-day event highlights the innovative, forward-thinking work happening in our region’s blue economy. The goal is to spark conversations and inspire action around the blue economy. Big Blue takes place April 30 and May 1 at the Aloft Aviation at Cape Cod Gateway Airport. This year’s focus is on electrification and coastal resiliency. Following Day 1 of the conference, on the evening of April 30 we’ll be hosting a Battle of the Robots at the airport with local high school robotics teams!

Waypoints – Start the Journey!
Expedition Blue Waypoints is a unique blend of interpretive structures integrated with a mobile-ready web experience spanning the whole of Cape Cod, as well as Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.
