ETEBA opens registration for its “Business Opportunities & Technical Conference”

Registration is now open for the 2022 “Business Opportunities & Technical Conference” (BOTC) organized by the Energy Technology and Environmental Business Association (ETEBA) .

Now in its 23rd year, the in-person event will be held October 4-6 at the Knoxville Convention Center. As the organization’s name implies, the conference focuses on upcoming business opportunities with government agencies and prime contractors in the energy, environmental and defense markets. This year, ETEBA says the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has requested an active role in the conference by hosting a half day small business workshop within the agenda of the BOTC.

The agenda calls for a golf tournament and opening reception on October 4, a full-day of programming on the second day, and an almost full-day of sessions on October 6 before concluding around 3:30 p.m. Among the early speakers on October 5 are:

  • Kelly Cummins, Acting Director and Principal Deputy Director, Clean Energy Programs, DOE, who will speak about business opportunities in the clean energy area; and
  • Cortney Piper, Executive Director of the Tennessee Advanced Energy Business Council, whose topic is “Clean Energy Opportunities: Creating the Future of Business.”

There are also panels on opportunities in the cleanup, defense, infrastructure, and workforce development areas on October 5. The DOE session is October 6.

The preliminary agenda can be found here. The link to registration is here.
