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, attracting over 2,500 attendees in 2005.
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 9th annual
conference — Nanotech 2006 — is expected to be the largest
conference to date.
