Penton Media Announces 2nd Annual NanoBusiness 2003 Conference, May 11 - 13 in NYC Tuesday October 15, 10:52 am ET DARIEN, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 15, 2002--Penton Media (NYSE:PME, www.penton.com) today announced that based on the tremendously successful launch of NanoBusiness 2002 earlier this year, it has confirmed dates for its second annual event -- NanoBusiness 2003. To be held at the New York Marriott Financial Center in New York City from May 11 - 13, 2003, the conference will focus on accelerating the business of nanotechnology and other small technologies. The inaugural event, held last May in New York City, was the best-attended Nanotechnology conference of the year, with representatives from such major corporations as Chevron Texaco, GE, IBM and HP attending presentations by such renowned speakers as Newt Gingrich, Ray Kurzweil, and Mike Roco. The event also featured the first "Bootcamp" for startups in nanotech, which included pitch sessions to leading VCs. Produced once again in partnership with The NanoBusiness Alliance (www.nanobusiness.org ), NanoBusiness 2003 will gather leaders from business, government, academia and the financial community, who will spend three intensive days in highly-charged seminars, presentations, and networking events. The event is designed to provide attendees with all the tools and information required to push research and application development toward commercialization, as well as showcase the ongoing integration of small tech products into the global economy. "The primary goal of NanoBusiness 2003 is to drive forward the business of small tech," said Vincent Caprio, Event Director for NanoBusiness 2003, "and by bringing our event right into the heart of New York's financial community, we believe we will certainly deliver on that promise. NanoBusiness 2003 will undoubtedly become the premier event not only for education, but ultimately for making deals as well." "In the six months since we concluded our first conference, the NanoBusiness Alliance has grown to more than 230 members globally, and we reach more than 30,000 people through our bi-weekly newsletter," said Nathan Tinker, EVP and co-founder of the NanoBusiness Alliance. "Nanotech investment globally has grown to more nearly $3 billion, and Deutsche Bank has called nanotech today a $160 billion market. It is within this environment that we believe NanoBusiness 2003 is the right event, at the right time, in the right market." Complete conference details and a speaker roster will be announced shortly. In addition to the educational focus of the event, NanoBusiness 2003 will also feature an exhibition component, highlighting products and services from the leading edge of nanotech.
