AEROMART hopes business deals will fly high in Toulouse

With 300 companies already registered as of 1 September, planning for the 2006 convention is well ahead of schedule.

All the major contractors are returning to the event, including Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Thalès, Safran, CNES, Alcatel Alenia Space, EADS Astrium, Finmecanica (Augusta, Aermacchi, Alenia Aeronautica Spazio and Piaggio Aero), Rolls Royce, and Pratt & Wittney. During the 2004 event, 9,000 meetings were held between 468 companies (including 150 contractors) from 25 countries, represented by 201 buyers and 318 sellers.

AEROMART has consolidated its international dimension with an increase for the 2006 event in the number of companies from Britain (more than 30 companies), Italy (25 companies), Germany, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, the Netherlands, China (AVIC I & II delegation with over 20 companies), Israel, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, Canada, Latvia, Lithuania and Turkey. New delegations are expected from India, Russia, Portugal, the USA (where AEROMART is now considered to be of economic interest to US companies) and South Korea.

At a time when many aerospace companies are looking to optimise their cost-effectiveness ratio, business conventions are enjoying increased success. The business convention formula has many advantages over an ordinary trade show: a business convention such as AEROMART offers private pre-scheduled meetings between buyers/contractors on the one hand, and suppliers/sub-contractors on the other. For a much lower all-inclusive price than that of booking a stand at a specialised trade fair, each participating company can select its contacts according to its needs and, a few days before the event, will receive a timetable of 15 to 20 targeted meetings over two days.


AEROMART is organised by Midi-Pyrenees Expansion (the regional development agency of the Midi-Pyrenees region of south-west France) and the Toulouse Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and is funded by the Midi-Pyrenees Regional Council, the Toulouse Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Haute-Garonne Departmental Council and the Greater Toulouse Conurbation Community.

BCI, a leading European promoter of business conventions, is responsible for organising and marketing the event, which will be held on 29 and 30 November 2006 in Toulouse at the Parc des Expositions.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
