Description: The Monterey Bay International Trade Association (MBITA) and the Monterey Export Assistance Center (EAC) of the U.S. Department of Commerce (USDOC) cordially invite you to attend a special luncheon meeting in Santa Cruz.
This meeting was called by MBITA to highlight cutting-edge green technologies produced by local companies that have global marketing and investment opportunities. Other local companies are now being recruited to give presentations about their cutting-edge green technologies at this luncheon.


Elliott Moorhead, CEO and Chairman of Nanovapor Systems Inc., (www.nanovapor.com) will speak about his experience in managing large environmental remediation projects and addressing the larger source points of environmental concern.
