About the NOA Conference:

The first NOA Conference took place in Tokyo, Japan in July 1995, following a successful procurement seminar held in New Orleans in September 1994 by Japanese electric utilities and jointly organized by the U.S. Departments of Commerce and Energy. At that time, representatives from 12 Japanese electric power providers and representatives from U.S. suppliers participated in the seminar. To maintain the enthusiasm shared by the U.S. and Japanese attendees at that first 1994 seminar, the New Orleans Association (NOA) was formed and the Department of Commerce began holding regular NOA conferences. These conferences usually consist of annual, half- or full-day events in Tokyo, hosted by CS Tokyo and consisting of keynote speeches, name card exchange, a networking lunch or reception, and one-on-one business matchmaking meetings. The NOA Conference was suspended in 2011 and 2012 in the wake of the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, and reconvened in 2013. We continue the upcoming 32nd NOA Conference in 2017, with more focus on business matchmaking sessions.

Participation Fees:

Fees will be calculated at the closing of registration, which is March 10, 2017, and will be shared by the U.S. firms and the Japanese utilities (number of participants).

Notes:

  • We expect most, if not all of the participating power companies to provide their general procurement needs as they approach the Conference. We will post those requirements on this website as soon as we learn them from the utilities.
  • Some screening is necessary in order to set up the individual matchmaking meetings. In order for the utilities to understand the products and services being offered, U.S. firms are asked to fill out the application forms. For registration, please click here:
