"I would like to congratulate you for organizing the first serious nano-event in Texas. Our company participated there and we achieved a number of good contacts. ...overall, at least from my point of view, it was one of the best nanotechnology events in the country that I participated in."
Zvi Yaniv, CEO Applied Nanotech, Inc.
Many of the conference rooms filled. NanoTech 101 was highly popular.
"I did make some valuable contacts - after making the rounds at these things for a few years, it gets to be the usual suspects from the same companies over and over, for the most part. I was exposed to some people/companies at nanoTX last year that I had not met on the circuit."
Andrew Braswell, New Bridges Securities
Was it the racing Corvette or its Firestone tires using nanotechnology science that made this exhibit so popular?
"I heard that the Reception, Tuesday evening, was impressive and wonderful. I'm glad that things went well. Bill Faulconer, our sales rep from Texas, felt he received positive feedback on several systems exhibited in our booth. Take a week vacation. You guys deserve it!"
Karen Rubelowsky, Horiba Jobon Yvon
"P.S. I'm looking forward to finding out what's being planned for NanoTX'07."
There were three high value networking sessions: The Nobel Laureates Legends Reception, sponsored by McKool Smith, Texas Instruments, and Lockheed Martin; the Exhibitors Guests Reception where the Foresight Feynman Award winners were announced, sponsored by Haynes Boone and the Association for Manufacturing Excellence; and the exclusive British Consulate Reception.
"Thanks again! Also, congrats with your attendance numbers. I really enjoyed the event. The quality and distribution of talks, and vendor displays was absolutely phenomenal. While a better program guide would have helped in my opinion, the organization and execution of the conference was otherwise impeccable. It was wonderful getting to know Texas, and nanotech in Texas through your conference. I certainly will be looking forward to NanoTX ´07!"
