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 that was 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 34th NOA Conference in 2019, with more focus on business matchmaking sessions.

Participation Fees:

Fees will be calculated at the closing of registration, which is February 28, 2019, and will be shared by the U.S. firms.

Notes:

  • Some screening is necessary to set up the individual matchmaking meetings. 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:
