NSTI Event Testimonials

The attendees are of a caliber where they can make technical and commercial decisions to select appropriate technologies. They are our buyers.

Alan Feinstein, President, Nanomotion, Inc.

We were swamped at the booth for the two full days…I actually got a bruised hand from handshaking.

Alan Rae, VP for Business Development and Marketing, Nanodynamics., Inc.

Nanotech 2005 was key to helping our company understand the nanotech landscape from technology and business perspectives. As nanotechnology grows and diversifies, this world-class event will remain a key focal point for interdisciplinary interactions for years to come. Looking forward to Nanotech 2006 in Boston!

Sean Dingman, Ph.D., Product Manager, Materials Science Group, Sigma-Aldrich.
