* NOW Venue Change *

We are excited to announce that interest in the Nuclear Opportunities Workshop has exceeded our venue's current capacity (under new rules), so we will be moving the Workshop to Bridgewater Place in West Knoxville (located at 205 Bridgewater Rd., Knoxville, TN 37923). A recent increase in Covid-19 transmissions in Anderson County has initiated DOE/NNSA protocols that limit group meetings to 50 people or less inside DOE facilities. Since we have nearly 200 people registered for N.O.W., we decided to move the Workshop to a facility large enough to allow for social distancing and to accommodate our long list of exhibitors.
ETEC NOW Sponsor 2022 7.27.22 - FINAL
Thank you to our N.O.W. Supporters!
Registration is still open for N.O.W. until tomorrow,
July 28 at 4:00 p.m. Click here to register.
