Nanotech Conference History
The first Nanotechnology Conference and Trade Show - Nanotech 1998 - was held at the Santa Clara Marriott, 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.
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.
Nanotech has continued to add vendors, a broader array of speakers and a diverse set of programs aimed at both scientists and business leaders. The 8th annual conference - Nanotech 2005 - is expected to be the largest conference to date.
