On August 13th through August 17th, hundreds of float tank center operators and enthusiasts from across the globe will convene with the world’s leading float tank experts in Portland, Oregon for the 4th annual Float Conference.
The event will feature a two day conference filled with lectures by scientists, authors, regulators, and industry experts. The first data collected from the brand new Float Clinic and Research Center will be presented by the clinic’s director, Justin Feinstein.
The event is designed to bolster support and share knowledge throughout the rapidly expanding float tank community. Since the first Float Conference in 2011, the number of float centers across the United States have doubled from approximately 125 to 250, and the number of conference attendees has increased from 160 to an anticipated 450 people this year. In the last decade, float tanks have gone from being relatively obscure phenomenon to achieving acclaim as as a form of relaxation, mental and physical health management, and recreation.
The Float Conference is hosted by Float On, a small Portland startup company who opened what has now grown to become one of the world’s most successful float tank centers.
