Commercialization and profits on the rise, nano leaders will hear in Chicago

CHICAGO, Sept. 29, 2004 – Commercialization and profitability are much more of a reality than many believe. Preliminary results of the 2004 National Small Tech Commercialization Survey, to be presented at NanoCommerce 2004, show that the majority of U.S. companies surveyed are shipping nano-enabled products, are profitable and are projecting rapid revenue growth over the next five years.

NanoCommerce 2004, held Oct. 5-7 in Chicago, features an extensive lineup of speakers featuring Motorola, Wilson Sports, PPG, DuPont, Guidant, McKinsey & Company, Easton Sports, Hewlett-Packard, Nanosys, Cambrios and many others.

A highlight of the event will be a presentation about Nano-Tex by inventor David Soane, CEO Donn Tice and turnaround financier and billionaire Wilbur Ross, who bought Burlington Industries, in part, because it owned Nano-Tex. The event is produced by Small Times Media.

NanoCommerce’s exhibit hall will be a gathering place for nanotechnology executives, with approximately 40 exhibitors, a networking fair, food, the Wildman Harrold Internet cafe and seating and reception areas.

Exhibitors at this year’s event include Hitachi, FEI, Nanotechnologies, Nanofilm, Nanophase Technologies, NanoInk, UK Trade & Investment, The Analytiq Group, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Arryx and many more. There is limited space still available for those interested in exhibiting.

“Before before the conference, our attendees, exhibitors and sponsors will gain access to our pre-conference networking program, which is only open to conference attendees,” said Steve Crosby, president and publisher at Small Times Media. “The program will allow them to interact via our self-assembled network and set up meetings before they arrive. Think of it as online dating for businesses.”
