After celebrating its 10th anniversary last year, nano tech 2012 – The 11th International Nanotechnology Exhibition & Conference will take place 15 to 17 February 2012 at the International Exhibition Center Tokyo Big Sight in Japan. After highlighting “green nanotechnologies” in previous years, life science applications of nanotechnology will be added as a new focus of the exhibition. Under the topic of “Life & Green Nanotechnology 10-9 INNOVATION”, nano tech 2012 will especially highlight products and technologies for the medical field, without leaving popular green technologies aside. A special symposium “Life Nanotechnology – Cutting Edge Technology for Health Innovation in an Aging Society” will pick up main developments in this field.
While the earthquake/tsunami disaster last March was threatening the success of this year’s event, the number of applicants in the aftermath of the disaster was extremely high, according to the show organiser. More than 500 exhibitors and up to 50,000 visitors are expected this year, making nano tech the largest nanotechnology fair worldwide. More than a quarter of the exhibitors are foreign participants from 22 different countries.
