Upcoming Events


  • SMN Technology Showcase

    The SMN Technology Showcase is a new event in the SMN portfolio and we want to profile our members who are innovative, leading edge companies breaking boundaries.

    We are searching for members to tell us what exactly you are offering and why you are making a difference in your field.   We are looking for submissions on new technology, demonstration in the field, research on your new technology, and application.

    We will have a panel of judges who will select the top six applicants to go forward to present at the Showcase, and will then be sitting in on your presentation, asking some searching questions and finally evaluating and selecting a winner.

    The eventual winner will be presented with a trophy. 

    This is a chance for you to shine and gain recognition across our network and social media channels.  Each participant will be profiled in the run up in the event.

    Details coming very soon
