Demonstrations and posters
An accompanying display covers
products, software, services, publications and research projects.
e2002 provides an ideal opportunity to demonstrate products or
show project progress and results. Participation in the display
can be a very rewarding experience, as it gives the opportunity
to make Europe-wide contacts and to hold meaningful discussions
with industrialists from many different sectors and countries.
For Commission funded projects,
a demonstration or poster at e2002 will significantly contribute
towards the obligations to exploit project results and disseminate
information by helping to develop market awareness and making
industrial user contacts. Exhibitors at previous events include
companies such as, Asita Technologies, Astra Satellite, EDS,
MINEit Software, as well as research organisations, IST projects
and many small companies.
Exhibition spaces are free
of charge to all paid delegates. This means that companies and
organisations wishing to exhibit must register for the conference
and pay the conference fee for all the people who will staff
the exhibit. Further information about delegate fees can be found elsewhere on this web site.
Panels and spaces are free
but organisations wishing to provide a demonstration or poster
exhibit must register for the conference and pay the conference
fee for all the people who will staff the demonstration. Space
is limited and will be allocated on a first come first served
basis. If you have specific questions or booking enquires about
a demonstration or poster, please contact the exhibition secretariat
(see email contact below). An exhibition space booking form can
also be obtained from the exhibition secretariat.
Technical details for exhibitors
An essential part of e2002
is the display area which gives a practical, visual dimension
to the event and is also acts as a focus for personal networking.
There is no charge for space but all demonstration and poster
presenters must register and pay as delegates. As usual, meals
and refreshments will be taken in the demonstration and display
Display of Posters - format
Poster presenters will be provided
with a vertical panel one metre wide on which to fix the poster.
Posters may be any size but a useful standard is landscape A1
(84 x 59 cms). Presenters should aim for a professional appearance
so it is probably better to bring pre-mounted material and not
to bring separate photos or text to put directly on to the panel.
It is expected that most research projects will opt for a poster.
Posters should concentrate on showing actual or potential outputs
rather than describing background or technical developments.
The aim should be for visual effect by limiting the text (in
English) and communicating by pictures and diagrams. Typical
questions that should be covered are:
- What problems are addressed
- What industrial benefits are
- What are the actual social
and environmental gains in time, resources or costs?
- How could outputs be implemented?
- What action (eg contact, read)
should the viewer take?
Demonstrations - format and
Stand space for demonstrations
will be 2 metres wide by 1 metre deep and where requested will
be made from four vertical panels each one metre wide. Stands
will have a table, chair and a five amps electricity socket.
It you apply for a stand then you must be prepared to actually
demonstrate something, such as computer software or equipment.
(If you have nothing but literature to show, you should apply
for a poster). The stand walls should be used to display descriptive
posters that should generally confirm with the rules for posters
