“New Brunswick companies were in the thick of the action,” said Gordon Wilson, General Manager of Silicon East Inc. “Maine business showed serious interest in our products and services and many potential alliances are being formed.”

This was the second gathering of the state’s innovative companies developing cutting-edge products and technologies for the 21st century. MaineTech 2005 was billed as the event that would create opportunities for these companies who are transforming Maine’s economy.

Business pitched their products and ideas and networked with people who can help them realise their vision. The centre of activity was the exhibit floor where companies and service providers displayed their products and ideas while networking to attract investors, sales, strategic partners and media attention.
