PORTLAND, Ore. and WASHINGTON, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Now in its fourth year, the Oregon Technology Investor Tour will profile 10 leading Oregon public high-tech companies located in the Portland metropolitan area. Participating companies will hold onsite meetings for the financial investment community during the week of August 7-10, 2006. AeA, the nation's largest high-tech trade association, will organize this year's tour. The Oregon Technology Investor Tour provides a unique opportunity for the financial investment community to experience Oregon public technology companies first-hand, meet their management teams, view product demonstrations, and tour companies. Company sessions will be held at individual company sites, with each company holding a 1.5 to 3 hour session. "We have two main goals for the Oregon Tech Tour," said Fletcher Chamberlin, treasurer and investor relations director at FEI Company. "We hope to attract an expanded list of potential investors who are interested in mid- and small-cap technology companies, and we want to expose those investors to a wider group of managers and more hands-on demonstration of our products than we can do in standard investor presentations." "We have participated in the Oregon Technology Tour since its inception in 2003. The event is an effective way to bring more investors to our campus to meet management and see demos of our Promentum(TM) and Procelerant(TM) product lines. In addition, the event allows the participating companies to showcase the overall technology presence we have in the Portland area," said Brian Bronson, VP of finance and business development at RadiSys Corporation. "From the companies' perspective, the tour is a great opportunity to band together to raise the profile of Oregon public technology companies and to combine efforts to attract a larger financial investment audience to the area," said Jennifer Bosze, executive director of AeA's Oregon Council. Some of the company presentations will be webcast over the Internet (all times Pacific) and posted on the individual company's web site. The event will be most beneficial to institutional investors, research analysts, buy- side analysts, sell-side analysts, key portfolio managers, and venture capitalists. In addition to the company presentations, a CEO/Investor Dinner is scheduled for Wednesday, August 9.
