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.

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...
For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
