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. (http://www.NanoCommerce2004.com ) "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.
