Sheraton Boston Hotel. Boston. Tech Briefs Media Group, publisher of NASA Tech Briefs magazine, is teaming up with EventEvolution Management Inc. to launch the Sensors Tech Forum. "As the world's most widely read OEM design engineering magazine, NASA Tech Briefs reaches hundreds of thousands of engineers who specify and apply sensors, detectors and related technologies. We felt strongly, and our research confirmed, that there was a significant need for an industry event that tackled this market in a different approach-both educationally and from an exhibiting point of view," explained Joseph Pramberger, president, Tech Briefs Media Group. Sensors Tech Forum is doing its own version of "smart" event producing. The exhibit floor will cap exhibitor participation and limit the maximum booth size to a 20' x 20' to allow for a cost-effective, competition-friendly environment that is conducive to doing business. The Forum will also feature dedicated, non-compete exhibit hall hours that allow exhibitors and attendees ample time to do business without the fear of missing sessions or other events taking place. The format allows exhibitor personnel to attend conference sessions, providing another opportunity for exhibitor networking and learning. The Tech Forum will produce a four-track education conference program that features all-day tutorials, panel discussions, in-depth "power" sessions and peer-to-peer roundtables focused on helping product and system design engineers specify and design products/applications that utilize sensors and related technology. Attendees can choose to follow a specific track or create their own program by choosing from more than 30 individual sessions. In addition to the above, the Forum will also feature a variety of networking events such as opening and closing day keynote luncheons and an opening night reception that supports its mission of creating an intimate environment that is conducive to learning, networking and making long-term business relationships.
