AeA trade association invites I.E. companies to green conference

     Inland Empire technology companies interested in staying competitive and utilizing green technologies might want to consider attending the Innovation and Globalization in Green conference on Oct. 1 and 2 in Irvine.

     AeA — the nation’s largest high-tech trade association — is inviting businesses throughout the two-county region to attend the event.

     That’s on top of local companies who already plan on going. The AeA’s Inland Empire-Orange County chapter represents 140 companies across San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange counties with a collective revenue of more than $8 billion and more than 160,000 employees.

     Like other regions, our two-county area is still in its green-technology infancy.

     But significant strides are being made.

     Southern California Edison, for instance, is currently installing a $7 million, 2-megawatt solar panel project on top of a huge warehouse in Fontana.

     To register for the conference, visit www.ocinnovation2008.com. Attendees who sign up by Saturday will get a 20-percent discount.

     For information on AeA’s local chapter, visit www.aeanet.org/orangecounty.

     Speakers at the conference include Deborah Wince-Smith, president of the Council on Competitiveness, a group of CEOs, university presidents and labor leaders committed to driving U.S. competitiveness; Andrew Winston, co-author of “Green to Gold” and expert on what works, and what doesn’t, when companies go green; and Reynolds Bish, CEO and director of Kofax, a provider of Intelligent Capture and Exchange solutions in 31 countries.
