October 2, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Now in its 19th year, the annual Energy Technology and Environmental Business Association (ETEBA)’s Business Opportunities and Technical Conference (BOTC) packs a wealth of information, networking and fun into three days of first-rate programs and activities. Each year more than 400 participants gather to learn about upcoming opportunities with prime contractors and government procurement officials in the energy, environmental and defense markets, and to build contacts and relationships with key decision makers, teaming partners, and potential clients.

The conference also provides an excellent forum for company to promote their capabilities, products and services, and it offers technical presentations and training opportunities for technical and managerial staff to learn about project successes and the latest in technical and project management advances.

The goal for the conference is to offer a program that appeals to a broad range of technical, management, and business development professionals. Accordingly, the Conference will be structured around three tracks – Business Opportunities, Training, and Technical. The Business Opportunities track will follow a similar format to past years with panel and technical sessions featuring outstanding speakers who will focus on current business trends, issues and opportunities.

The Training track will offer professionals the opportunity to learn about a range of topics that are relevant to today’s business environment. The Technical track will feature presentations by both technical professionals and students that showcase specialized technical expertise, unique technological advances, and project success stories.

To submit a technical abstract see page 12 of the conference prospectus for details. Take advantage of this opportunity to share your technical expertise and project successes with your technical peers, potential teaming partners, existing and potential clients!

We will also be hosting the 2nd Annual Student Internship and Job Fair during the BOTC which will offer students in STEM curricula from colleges and universities in the region the opportunity to meet with member companies. Promising young student engineers from these departments will be attending and participating in the conference Thursday, October 4th. A select few will present on technical topics of concern in today’s energy market, and there will be opportunities for participating companies to meet with students to discuss internship and job opportunities.

We will also once again host our scholarship golf tournament Tuesday, October 2nd which will include scholarship fundraising for Universities in TN and NM. If you are interested in opportunities for students be sure to sign up for all
of these activities and sign up to host a table at the Student Internship and Job Fair at no additional cost.

The BOTC also offers lively evening receptions in the Exhibit Hall that will give participants the opportunity to network, meet potential clients and teaming partners, re-connect with old friends, and win door prizes while enjoying great food and entertainment. A reception sponsorship is also available to feature your business in a big way. Help us bring back the popular Casino Night for our Opening reception and receive multiple recognitions throughout the conference.
