nanotech manufacturer's forum on friday

This Friday October 26 the Deyor Performing Arts Center in Downtown Youngstown will host an event geared toward exploring nanotechnology applications in traditional manufacturing technologies.

Don't know what nanotechnology is, or how it may apply to you and your company?

Well, then this event may be perfect for you.

One can look at the potential impact of nanotechnology in the next two decades like the impact of information technology (IT) in the last two decades:

Even though entirely new sectors of the economy were generated by the emergence of IT and novel applications, the spread of IT to all corners of the economy is what really drove global productivity and made new applications stick. IT has affected the way we sell insurance, administer health care, inspect our automoblies, and communicate with our loved ones.

Similarly, while your life or manufacturing firm may not be a producer of nanotechnology theories and experiements, the applications of nanotechnology may have a great impact on your future well-being and profitability.
