WORLD SUMMIT

Nuclear Security Summit
WORLD FORUM – The Hague

The 3rd World Summit on Nuclear Security in 2014 was the largest international event ever organised in the Netherlands. The event addressed the threat of terrorism and was attended by the presidents of America and China, as well as 50 others Heads of State and government and representatives from different international organisations.

The aim of the summit was to contribute to preventing nuclear terrorism and to reinforce international cooperation to combat the illegal traffic of nuclear and radio-active materials.

 

SPORTS EVENT

FEI WORLD CUP FINALS
EUREXPO - Lyon

In April 2014, Lyon hosted the World Cup Dressage and Show-jumping Finals under the same roof at Eurexpo! It was a genuine highlight in the French and international sports calendar, bringing together the world's top riders and horses.

The teams of Equita Lyon had the honour of organising the 2014 International Equestrian Federation (FEI) Finals.

The event brought together 1,071 horses and covered a total area of 58,000m², requiring some 3,500 tonnes of sand. It took 18 days to install and assemble the made-to-measure facilities for this unique show.

 

CONVENTION

GARTNER SYMPOSIUM, THE INTERNATIONAL INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES EVENT
CCIB BARCELONA -Barcelona

Gartner Symposium ITexpo is the world's most important gathering of CEOs and senior IT executives.
Devoted to emerging technologies, the event has existed for 20 years and takes place in August. It provides an insight into the main trends and their potential.

More than 2,000 topics were analysed. Reflecting the times we live in, the underlying theme of the 2014 event was the evolution towards digital companies.

After the analogue era, the beginnings of the web and the "e-business" generation, this year's Gartner Symposium outlined the next three major steps that lie ahead for companies: digital marketing, digital business and autonomy.

 

CULINARY FESTIVAL

Omnivore World Tour Festival
MAISON DE LA MUTUALITE – Paris

In March 2014, Omnivore presented an elaborate programme, based on a year's work and many journeys around the world. The event took place for the third successive year at the Maison de la Mutualité, which was privatised for the occasion.

The Omnivore Festival is held each year and is one of the worldwide benchmarks regarding contemporary cuisine. Over the course of three days, the event puts the spotlight on previously unknown chefs, who share unforgettable gastronomic moments.

 

CONFERENCE

BioEurope
LINGOTTO FIERE – Turin                                       


The 8th Bio Europe conference, a leading event in the natural science sector, represented a unique opportunity for start-up biotech companies and factories to meet and form alliances with investors and directors of major pharmaceutical companies.

 

ECONOMIC SUMMIT

Oil & Gas Summit
RIOCENTRO – Rio De Janeiro

The Oil & Gas Summit is one South America's major international events in the oil and gas sector.

The 2014 event broke records in terms of business and the number of participants. The future looks bright for the next editions of this event.
