NEW YORK, April 27, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Nanotech Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:APNT) is pleased to announce its selection for the prestigious NYC Bright Lights Conference to be held on May 10 and May 11, 2011 at the Le Parker Meridien Hotel in New York City. Applied Nanotech will present at 11:00 a.m. on May 11. Bright Lights is the only conference of its kind with an exclusive focus on publicly-traded companies with disruptive and market changing intellectual property (IP).

Applied Nanotech was selected from MDB's 2011 group of "Best and Brightest" small-cap companies, a group that is advancing some of today's most innovative and market-leading intellectual property (IP). Applied Nanotech was ranked in the 90th percentile for its technology leadership from more than 1,500 small-cap companies with granted U.S. patents, as rated by PatentVest, MDB's proprietary IP business intelligence platform.

Applied Nanotech will present to renowned IP innovation leaders and institutional investors that are focused on shaping policies and strategies for IP monetization and value creation. During the presentation, the company will also discuss recent accomplishments of its pilot manufacturing line for non-contact printable metallic inks used in the manufacturing of silicon solar cells and its new carbon nanotube-based composites and materials, which have been shown to dramatically improve the performance of golf clubs and racquets.

Christopher Marlett, CEO at MDB Capital Group, comments, "It's a rare and exciting opportunity to have so many key players that are driving IP asset monetization together under one roof and we look forward to sharing Applied Nanotech's new carbon nanotube and nanoparticle ink technologies with other innovators and investors at the Bright Lights conference."

Bright Lights also features high-profile speakers including the top IP experts in the nation, such as David Kappos, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), who will be joining as a keynote speaker; in addition to Marshall Phelps, former head of Microsoft IP, and John Cronin, former head of IBM's Patent Factory, and Paul Ryan of Acacia Research.
