ENERGEX'2000 and the Global Energy Exposition introduces


Riviera Hotel Convention Center


JULY 23-28, 2000

ENERGEX'2000, the 8th International Energy forum and the official Conference of the International Energy Foundation, will be held in cooperation with the Global Energy Exposition produced by the Nevada Test Site Corporation, Las Vegas. The partnership between ENERGEX'2000 and the Global Energy Exposition amplifies the conference theme and also lays the groundwork for the establishment of the IEF Americas headquarters in Nevada. The above combined events, known as GlobeEx'2000, will be held at the Riveria Hotel Conference Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, July 23-28, 2000. Registration at ENERGEX'2000 ensures that delegates will be able to attend all of the combined sessions at no additional cost plus the technical sessions of the Intersociety Energy Conversion Conference co-located at the Riviera Hotel Convention Center.

The ENERGEX program consists of an international forum for the discussion and presentation of energy research papers. ENERGEX is convened by the International Energy Foundation, which has recently moved its Americas Headquarters to Las Vegas. We are marketing both events as one conference. One registration allows attendees to cross over and take advantage of sessions in either conference. In addition, joint plenary sessions will be held as well as keynote addresses. All dining events will be held as one group.

Invited Speakers at GlobeEx'2000 (comprised of the joint ENERGEX'2000 and the Global Energy Exposition) include:

The theme of ENERGEX'2000 and GlobeEx'2000 is

"Energy and International Cooperations Coordination and Communication - The Beginning of a New Millennium".

Hosted by:

Nevada Test Site Development Coporation
International Energy Foundation

Endorsed by:

U.S. Department of Energy
