UBIFRANCE’s virtual trade show goes live

22.06.2011
UBIFRANCE, France’s export-support agency, has launched a virtual trade-show platform, which will consist of six pavilions covering various industries such as fashion, health, infrastructure, transport, food and new technologies, as well as featuring a separate UBIFRANCE pavilion. In mid-June, the first virtual trade show took off, focused on the food industry and the So French So Good promotional campaign.

UBIFRANCE, which currently has 63 offices in 44 countries, seeks to facilitate access to foreign markets for French-based businesses by giving them the opportunity to increase their exposure and generate business contacts with prospective foreign clients.

Virtual trade shows are already a highly developed concept in North America. This new virtual trade-show platform will be updated throughout the year with a host of live and pre-recorded events, conferences, meetings with buyers, live broadcasts of highlights, and video chats. This will give many of UBIFRANCE’s events a new, longer lifespan.

Visitors to the virtual trade show will have 24/7 access to live or pre-recorded conferences as well as to booths run by companies, by UBIFRANCE, or by its partners. Visitors will be able to access downloads and contact forms as well as to retrieve information of interest to them.

All the events featured on the virtual trade-show website (www.ubifrance-events24.com) will have a specific online communication system, which is aimed at generating targeted, qualified traffic.

From 14 to 17 June 2011, the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region (in northern France) used this new platform to promote its International Week event. UBIFRANCE took this opportunity to launch its virtual trade show in order to promote the food industry, more particularly in relation to the So French So Good campaign. A host of streaming events and live online conferences were accessible on the internet over four days as part of this virtual trade show.

French businesses will be able to benefit from first-hand accounts in English, particularly those that took part in the Hannover Messe 2011 technology trade show (in the northern German city of Hanover), the French Tech Tour (in the USA), and other key events. In all, over 160 booths will be put online.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
