On November 17, 2009, the Nob Hill Masonic Center will open its doors to thousands of cleantech industry professionals for the Third Annual Cleantech Open Grand Expo & Awards Gala. The event will commence with an exposition floor filled with over 120 cleantech companies, followed by a series of demonstrations and business plan pitches from Cleantech Open finalists. The afternoon will continue with the national awards ceremony, during which the 2009 National Cleantech Open winner will be announced and presented with a $250,000 prize package. Afterward, a private champagne reception will provide an opportunity for attendees to mingle, network and explore business development opportunities alongside speakers and Cleantech Open winners.

Competition categories include ‘air, water and waste,’ ‘energy efficiency,’ ‘green building,’ ‘renewable energy,’ ‘smart power, green grid and energy storage’ and ‘transportation.’ Audience members will be invited to participate by voting for the “Peoples’ Choice Award” of their favorite companies and technologies.

The event, which marks the grand finale to the Cleantech Open’s year-long business competition, is designed to showcase the boldest clean technology ideas, the most ambitious entrepreneurs and the brightest investors, venture capitalists and prospective technology customers.
