StatNano Events Database is one of the most comprehensive databases about nanotechnology events, which displays events based on venue, location, and type of the event. Among the most important events, mention can be made of nanotechnology exhibitions. More than 15 conference-expo will be organized all over the world in 2018 in addition to four specialized nanotechnology exhibitions in Japan, South Korea, China, and Iran.
Iran International Nanotechnology Festival and Exhibition is among the four largest nanotechnology exhibitions in Asia, which has annually been held in October in Tehran since 2007. Annual increase in the number of participating Iranian and international companies, the number of nanotechnology products, number of visitors, and the volume of contracts signed in the exhibition show the significant growth in the exhibition in the past decade.
More than 130 international and Iranian companies participated in this exhibition last year. These companies put to display their products in 10 pavilions of laboratory and industrial equipment, automotive and transportation, water and environment, health and hygiene, Construction, agriculture, foodstuff packaging, nanomaterials, energy and petroleum, and textile. According to the protocol of the exhibition, only companies that acquire Nanoscale Certificate are allowed to participate in the exhibition. The Nanoscale is a certificate indicating the association of a product with nanotechnology that has been granted by Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) to domestic nanotechnology products.
More than 30,000 visitors visited the exhibition in the last year, among which there were visitors from South Korea, China, Ecuador, Philippines, and Russia. In addition to Iranian companies, international companies from Russia, South Korea, China, Malaysia, Oman and Japan have presented their products in this exhibition in the previous years. In the next exhibition, international companies that have representative in Iran can participate in the exhibition in case they acquire Nanoscale Certificate, as well as other international companies who are not active in Iran.
The 11th International Nanotechnology Festival and Exhibition will be held on 13-16 October 2018 in Persian Gulf Hall of Tehran Permanent International Fairground.
