Sep 13, 2004, 01:00 ET from Small Times Media

    ANN ARBOR, Mich., Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Executives attending
 NanoCommerce 2004 will be able to take advantage of two unconventional
 networking opportunities provided by event organizers.  Set for October 5-7 at
 Chicago's McCormick Place, NanoCommerce 2004's focus is on real nanotechnology
 products, partners and business strategy. ( )
     "One of the most difficult things about the emerging nanotech industry is
 finding the right people to talk to within different organizations," says
 Steve Crosby, Small Times Media president and publisher.  "We've addressed
 that need at NanoCommerce by developing a program that allows our attendees to
 interact before the conference to identify potential partners, customers and
 investors.  It's something that's never been done at a nanotech event."
     Moving technologies developed for social networking into the business
 sector, NanoCommerce 2004 attendees can participate in two unique networking
 programs.  "Nano-Second Networking" is a type of speed dating tailored for
 business contacts.  "Self-Assembled Networks" is a program that allows
 registered attendees to interact before, during and after the show through a
 private online network.
     Co-chaired by Small Times Media President and Publisher Steve Crosby and
 NanoBusiness Alliance Executive Director Sean Murdock, NanoCommerce 2004
 offers high-level speakers from Motorola, Hewlett-Packard, GE Global Research,
 DuPont, Nanosys, Wilson Sporting Goods and more.  The exhibit hall will
 showcase companies that have real nanotechnology-based products, including
 Konarka, Hitachi, Nanophase Technologies, Nanofilm and many more.
