The first Nanotechnology Conference and Expo - Nanotech 1998 - was held at in Santa Clara, California. A group of 250 scientists and researchers gathered to discuss and share developments, innovations and research in the growing, but still emerging science of Nanotechnology. The event, sponsored and organized by Matthew Laudon and Bart Romanowicz of the Nano Science and Technology Institute, was such a success that it became an annual event, attracting over 3,555 attendees in 2009.
Every year since those humble beginnings, the conference has grown in both scope and audience. It now ranks as the largest international nanotechnology conference in the world. The conference no longer exclusively focuses only on scientists and researchers, although sharing research and developments remains a cornerstone of the conference. Nanotech now reaches out to investors, venture capitalists and business executives interested in how nanotechnology can drive business in the 21st century.
NSTI Nanotech 2010 is the largest annual nano & small tech community meeting worldwide, and attracts the most targeted, influential and qualified attendees. Any company with a product or service associated with these technologies and solutions is encouraged to exhibit.
