1st Annual EngEx Engineering Conference & Exhibition in San Diego, California-


EngEx – the first engineering conference and exhibition of its kind – will kick off July 29th in San Diego, CA, with close to 10,000 of the nation’s leading experts in energy, transportation, water, and environment under one roof to exhibit, discuss, and share ideas which will bring America closer to its goal of wide-ranging sustainability. The event is unique, in that it offers intimate networking with cutting-edge individuals working to revolutionize the green industry, comprehensive information on grant opportunities, detailed keynote addresses by national green tech leaders, as well as a career and internship fair for those looking to join the green movement. “We are looking forward to having a great conference that really creates some strong business and innovation opportunities for our nation’s future,” said Kris Ellis with EngEx 2010. “The plan is to evolve some big ideas into action from this conference.” University researchers, veteran engineers, high-profile policy makers, government entities, and investors are among the various leaders who will be present at the San Diego Convention Center; offering attendees an exclusive opportunity to discuss environmental issues and communicate concepts which span from fuel infrastructure and public transit, carbon sequestration and reuse technologies, water desalination and contamination, to renewable energy generation and regulation, and much more. “There will be plenty of decision makers at this conference that will be able to develop and implement that next generation of green engineering businesses,” Ellis said. “Investors will really want to check out this conference to get some great business development collaboration ideas. In fact, more than thirty different disciplines of engineering will be represented at this ground-breaking conference.” EngEx will also offer its visitor’s access to more than $500 billion in government funds, as well contracts from multiple U.S. Departments such as the Small Business Administration (SBA), Department of Energy (DOE), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Department of Commerce (DOC), to name a few.

    Too Bad this Event Never Happened!

  • Green Energy News (author) said:

    I know. We had a person sign up underneath us who was never refunded for their booth space. We have been trying to get ahold of them to see if/when they will reschedule the conference, but their website, along with all social media sites have been removed. Very strange.

  • Steve said:

    We had a person register online as well. We were advertising for this event for months and they were communicating to us weekly. Kate Hagen was the name of the person (not sure if she is real or not) who took our forms and setup our account. Even provided content for the ads. Looked very legitimate. Now my emails go unanswered. Never got paid for the registrations I collected on their behalf.

    Does anyone know what happened here?

    My company paid for the ticket entrance ($300) and I never got a refund, not even an answer!
    I called, and e-mail them many times until their address did not work anymore. I also contacted the San Diego Convention Center, which seems to have no further information, and is apparently waiting for payments as well :

    “conference cancelled” and not “postponed” indeed…

    So I set a complaint against EngEx to the Federal Trade Commission.
    We should all do the same : http://www.ftc.gov/

    I am surprised there is not more information on the web about this swindling.

  • Jeff said:

    I have reported it to BBB what ever its worth, but will do it to FTC also, is there any kind of regulations for these kind of fraudulent conferences… is there a legal recourse that can be taken?

  • Green Energy News (author) said:

    Jeff, We’d suggest calling the California Attorney General’s office & reporting it there as well.

  • Ted said:

    For what it’s worth, the company was not a fraud. Unfortunately, it went bankrupt before the conference and ultimately ended up refunding attendees and exhibitors.

  • Green Energy News (author) said:

    That is actually untrue. There are many conference attendees and exhibitors who have not received any money back. The company took down all its websites and essentially skipped town, with hundreds of thousands of dollars in their pocket from people who signed up to attend and/or exhibit at this conference.

  • Jeff Green said:

    Bankrupt my A**. @Ted, can you tell me who got refunded, and if they are refnding, can you post the number or address whom I can talk about my refund…
