TechConnect World is a unique combination of three interconnected conferences focused on technology commercialization: Clean Technology, Nanotech, and the TechConnect Summit.
– Clean Technology 2010: Focuses on top industrial and utility concerns, including smart grid, energy efficiency, energy storage, power generation and renewable energy, transportation, sustainable cities, water, finance and policy.
– Nanotech 2010: Addresses the key issues in bringing nanotech from lab to market and key application areas including: advanced batteries, semiconductors, PV materials, lighting, biotech, green chemistry, modeling and simulation, fabrication and characterization.
– TechConnect Summit 2010: Delivers the leading corporations, research universities, start-ups and investors across cleantech, nanotech, Microsystems and life sciences actively seeking technology and commercial partnerships, financing, research collaborations, and intellectual property licensing opportunities.
As the largest event in the United States focusing on technology commercialization, TechConnect World 2010 is uniquely positioned to bring together industry, research, and government. Representatives from each of these sectors are critical to solving the technical, market and regulatory challenges that slow down the pace of innovation.
"The event is able to match executives from companies like Lockheed Martin, BASF, Honda, Kodak, Merck, Sanyo and many others - with the research and business leaders that can partner with them to bring the next generation of products to market," said Matthew Laudon, Executive Director of NSTI.
TechConnect World is expected to draw over 5,000 attendees from over 70 countries, across major industry segments and along the technology path -- from research to implementation. The exposition - which features several international pavilions -- is expected to host more than 400 companies, universities, equipment manufacturers and solutions providers. These exhibitors will meet with thousands of prospects and potential buyers, who come to the expo to evaluate the latest technology and services.
Submissions for case studies, sustainable or cleantech solutions, technical presentations, venture presentations and available intellectual property will open mid-September. Please sign-up here if you would like to be notified of submission opportunities.
TechConnect World provides attendees with a "one-stop-shop" for learning about the latest advancements, and evaluating the latest Clean-technology, Nanotechnology and Biotechnology solutions.

The Clean Technology & Sustainable Industries Organization (CTSI), a 501c6 non-profit industry association, represents the organizations developing, commercializing, and implementing energy, water, and environmental technologies. Clean technologies offer much needed solutions to growing resource security and sustainability concerns and are critical to maintaining economic competitiveness. CTSI brings together global leaders for advocacy, community development, networking, and information sharing to help bring these needed technologies to market more rapidly.
The Nano Science and Technology Institute (NSTI) advances and integrates nano and other advanced technologies through education, conventions, business publishing, and research services. NSTI produces the annual TechConnect World conference and trade show, which attracts more than 5,000 industrial, academic, business and governmental attendees from around the word. It is the largest gathering of the nanotechnology industry in the U.S. NSTI was founded in 1997 as a result of the merger between various scientific societies, and is headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts with offices in California and Switzerland.
