Conference Sponsorship Puts Organizations at the Forefront of Energy Research and Development

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 21, 2012) - For the last five years, Advanced Energy has firmly established its position as one of the nation's foremost conferences on the future of energy. This year's conference, Advanced Energy 2012, will take place on October 30 - 31, 2012 in New York City with a new, expanded format that combines energy conferences from across New York State for an unprecedented opportunity to learn, share and network. The conference also provides an opportunity for organizations to take an elite position at the forefront of energy research and technology development by sponsoring the event.

Advanced Energy 2012 will bring together thousands of attendees, including business leaders, researchers, innovators and policy makers from all over the world representing hundreds of organizations, dozens of colleges and universities, and most National Laboratories and military organizations. By sponsoring this event, companies will be able to showcase their products and services to key stakeholders who influence the most important energy decisions of our time, while highlighting their dedication to America's energy future.

The conference will be held at the newly renovated Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, and is expected to attract a broader than ever audience. Conference sponsors will be able to enhance their visibility and gain wide exposure. Additionally, the conference encompasses a wide range of technologies and market segments and typically draws attendees from across all areas of renewable and sustainable energy management technology, so sponsoring companies will be able to earn recognition beyond their particular segment.

Major sponsorship provides companies with maximum visibility in all public relations and marketing initiatives and creates greater awareness of their brand among the government officials, investors and potential technology partners attending the event. Companies sponsoring the event will also benefit from strong public recognition through the conference's literature and signage as well as by having their logo and a special sponsor profile appear in the conference program guide.

The conference is organized by the Stony Brook University Advanced Energy Research & Technology Center (, a partnership of academic institutions, energy providers and industrial corporations dedicated to innovative energy research, education and technology deployment. The organization is committed to promoting the development of cheaper, cleaner energy, with the long-term goal of seeing sustained growth and thousands of new jobs in the energy sector.

"Advanced Energy 2012 promises to be our biggest conference yet, gathering today's foremost thinkers on the future of energy policy," said Robert Catell, chairman of the board of AERTC. "The benefits of sponsoring the conference are immense, giving organizations the opportunity to promote their dedication to the advancement of green technologies and clean energy research while networking with high-level business leaders, lawmakers and researchers from across the energy industry."
