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: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
