IEEE NANO is IEEE's premier nanotechnology conference. With the 2011 conference located in Portland, Oregon, the Nanotechnology Council of IEEE needed effective on-the-ground representation for the entire year preceding the 5-day meeting.

Christopher L. Dennis volunteered to be the Exhibits Chair.


  • IEEE NANO 2011 had the greatest number of paying exhibitors of any US-based IEEE NANO conference for which records were available.

Activities included:

  • Coordinating efforts to identify potential exhibitors and sponsors.
  • Developing communication, performing outreach.
  • Identifying, contracting, and managing a commission-based sales staff.
  • Overseeing exhibit area operations during the conference.
  • Developed a conference satisfaction survey.
