The International Conference Centre of Geneva (ICCG) is conveniently located near the International Airport and major highways, the railway station, the international organizations, Lake Geneva and the historic old town. Your congress, seminar or exhibition can be hosted with optimum convenience and comfort in two distinctive conference centres. The CICG and CCV provide rooms with seating from 20 to 2200 places. They are ideally located just off the Place des nations (UN) and within easy reach of the principal international organizations and diplomatic representations in Geneva.
Videos from conferences, seminars, and talks have become a standard way to ensure that even those who can’t attend an event are able to at least get access to the presentations after the fact. However, video recordings from conferences are often somewhat sub-par and even the best videographers can have a hard time capturing both the speakers and their slides. Klewel, a Swiss startup, has developed an innovative system to replay videos and slides.
Geneva is the smallest of the world’s major cities. It is a world apart, with something for everyone. Distinguished by its unique geographical position in the heart of Europe, state-of-the-art technology, high-quality services, prestige and ranking as a world-class city, coupled with the advantages of a small town, Geneva is the ideal venue for your next event. Some call it the “world’s smallest metropolis”, others, the “peace capital”. Whatever image it brings to mind, Geneva has always been a popular destination. Better known throughout the world as the United Nations’ European headquarters and the head office of the International Committee of the Red Cross, our city draws thousands of people each year to events such as conferences, conventions and meetings.
The European Tech Tour Association held its second Cleantech Summit in Geneva, Switzerland on July 6-7, 2011 with 110+ delegates and 25 presenting CEOs.
The objectives of the conference was to identify the upcoming and leading top 25+ high-growth privately held cleantech companies in Europe and to introduce them to key European, US and Asian investors and professionals who can assist in their global expansion.
Klewel webcasted the conference and the videos are available for purchase.
Packaging applications of nonwovens have been “slow burn”. After many years of solid, but slow growth this sector is blossoming and now accounts for almost 3% of all nonwovens applications. In addition the market has shown excellent growth in the last few years.
The sector is characterised by a very broad range of applications with technology and innovation key success factors. This workshop aims to open up this growth area and should appeal to packaging end-users and specifiers plus nonwoven manufacturers and converters and raw material producers.
This Workshop was led by Dr. George Kellie.

Earth Focus Foundation presented THE PLAN written and directed by David Osterberg and Michael Stenberg of Biospheric Pictures AB (2010, 58′, Sweden) followed immediately by live discussion with Bruce Mau and Bisi Williams, and director David Osterberg. After the screening of THE PLAN, Bruce Mau lead a discussion exploring these questions:
1. How can we get the power of design into the hands of the 99% who have not had access to higher education?
2. How do we break through the noise, and make the best of human culture the most visible?
3. What can we do to accelerate the best (and stop the rest)?
