Paris set to become Europe’s capital of E-Commerce in September 2010

21.07.2010
The E-Commerce Paris trade show, which is taking place for the seventh time in 2010, will be held in Paris from 21 to 23 September. The trade show, a leading international event for the online-retailing sector, is expected to attract 550 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors from across Europe.

"Thanks to its continuous growth, over the course of just a few years, the E-Commerce Paris event has become the leader among European online-retailing trade fairs. This is all the more satisfying since, over the same period, Europe has become the leading online sales area in the world, ahead of the United States and Asia," says Alain Laidet, Director of Operations at E-Business Events and General Manager of the trade fair.

Europeans spent €150 billion on line in 2009, as compared to €130 billion spent by consumers in the USA and €110 billion in Asia. Paris E-Commerce aims to become the essential meeting point for European online retailers. For two years, it has already been the key online-sales trade fair in Europe. So far, the event has mostly attracted French visitors (90% of the 25,000 visitors in 2009), and the aim of the 2010 event is to establish a truly international trade show with attendance from all the key European markets, while ensuring that this trend continues throughout all future events.

This year, invitations have been sent to 40,000 European online sellers and the trade show has specifically opened its floor space to exhibitors with a pan-European dimension (30% of the total), such as the Swiss and Spanish post offices; affiliation platforms from Sweden (TradeDoubler) and Germany (Zanox and Affilinet); an Italian provider of e-mailing solutions (ContactLab); British suppliers of secure-payment services (Moneybookers and Royal Bank of Scotland); a Dutch electronic-catalogue company (IceCat); and a German multi-channel platform (Hybris).

There will be around 500 speakers giving talks in 14 conference rooms on themes relating to electronic commerce, including e-commerce technologies for setting up e-commerce websites, digital marketing for their promotion, and logistics for product delivery. The series of conferences attracted an audience of 18,000 in 2009, and more than 20,000 participants are expected to attend this year.

"Over the course of three days, E-Commerce Paris 2010 will bring together the entire European online-trading community, offering a great number of training and information sessions to its visitors. In September, Paris will be the undisputed capital of e-commerce," adds Valéry Linyer, Managing Director of Comexposium (Industry, High-Tech, Security & Construction Division), which is the parent company of E-Business Events.

Three leading European e-commerce companies have backed this initiative at the press conference launching the trade fair. "We are pleased to have been a partner of the E-Commerce Paris trade show since its inception, and it has now become an essential event for our industry. LeGuide.com group is now based in 14 countries and is Number Two on the European market. Understanding the different markets is the key to success at European level," explains Corinne Lejbowicz, President of LeGuide.com.

"We are delighted to be associated once again with E-Commerce Paris in connection with online retailing, and to see the growing interest of the public in this ever-innovative sector. We see constant proof that e-commerce in Europe is experiencing strong growth. At Kiala, we are focusing on innovation to develop and meet the needs of each country," adds Denis Payre, Chairman of Kiala.

Finally, Jean-Emile Rosenblum, co-founder and Vice-President of the Pixmania group, states, "It is a pleasure for me to chair the E-Commerce Awards ceremony and to extend our collaboration with E-Commerce Paris beyond a basic presence at the trade fair. Europe is very much part of Pixmania’s DNA. Since its creation, we have had a pan-European strategy, which has enabled us to be the leader in this market today. What we are now offering is our know-how, our expertise and our audience to companies seeking to develop their e-commerce in Europe."

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
