Comexposium to hold 2014 Equipmag Retail Expo China in Shanghai

The first Equipmag Retail Expo China will be held from 15 to 17 October 2014, in Shanghai (in mainland China). The event, co-organized by Comexposium Group and Diversified Events Hong Kong, will showcase suppliers of retail technology, equipment and fittings, as well as providers of marketing services and e-commerce solutions.

With a surface area of 5,400m², Equipmag Retail Expo China will showcase 160 local and international exhibitors and welcome 8,000 buyers from China and other countries.

The event will enable participants to gain an insight into global retail-industry trends while fulfilling the specific needs of retail players based in mainland China. The trade fair is due to take place at the Shanghai Exhibition Centre, in Shanghai, from 15 to 17 October of this year.

Statistics show that China has surpassed Japan in becoming the world’s second largest retail market. The country’s economy is developing rapidly and China is likely to become the Number One global retail market in the world by 2015 or 2016.

According to the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, the number of retail professionals rose from 45 million in 2008 to 60 million in 2012. The number of operating business units has reached 23 million. In China, the share of GDP represented by the wholesale/retail trade has increased significantly, rising from 8.30% in 2008 to 9.70% in 2012.

This series of marketing figures clearly illustrates the potential and the dynamics of the retail sector in China. Additionally, the decision made by the Chinese Ministry of Commerce to launch the China Free Trade Zone in Shanghai will undoubtedly quicken the pace of development in China’s retail industry.

Equipmag Retail Expo China responds to the sector’s growth in China and will help to educate retail-industry players and raise standards in this dynamic market. The trade fair is co-organised by Comexposium and Diversified Events Hong Kong, the Hong Kong-based unit of Diversified Events.

Thanks to Diversified Events’ experience in hosting Retail Asia Expo (in Hong Kong), and thanks to Comexposium’s track record in organising Equipmag Paris (in France), Equipmag Retail Expo China is bound to attract top retailers and meet the expectations of retail suppliers from across China and the region.

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...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
