Loomis Group, an independent, integrated marketing agency, today announced that it is a major sponsor of the inaugural SEMI NanoForum 2004 conference and will serve as the events marketing and PR agency. The sponsorship is part of Loomis Group's ongoing commitment to promoting the research and development of new nanotechnologies and to growing its own nanotechnology expertise in support of existing and future clients.
"SEMI NanoForum is the first time that executives from today's most innovative nanotechnology companies will join executives from the semiconductor industry to explore how they can best work together," said Jeff Loomis, CEO of Loomis Group. "As an agency with a number of clients already invested in nanotechnology, and many others investigating its potential, we are pleased to see such a conference come into being, and look forward to playing our part in expanding the horizons of these important industries."
Ranked as one of the top marketing agencies in the nanotechnology sector by Small Times magazine, Loomis Group has established a record of success in introducing and promoting nanotechnology ventures. Most recently, Loomis Group spearheaded the successful launch of the New Jersey Nanotechnology Consortium, a $400 million sub-micron production facility.
In its role as the conferences marketing agency, Loomis Group will provide public relations support and develop marketing materials for the event, which will be held November 14-17, 2004, at the Austin Hilton Hotel in Austin, Texas. NanoForum 2004 is being produced by SEMI, a global industry association that represents suppliers of manufacturing technology and materials to the semiconductor, flat panel display, MEMS and related microelectronics industries.
"Nanotechnology is still uncharted territory for many companies, yet Loomis Group has already mapped out a marketing strategy that works. That, and our familiarity with Loomis Group from their success with companies in the semiconductor industry, make us confident that Loomis Group will help us make the first NanoForum a memorable event," said Terry Berke, Director of Southwest, Northwest and North Central Regions for SEMI.
