Proud to be IFES

let’s make ideas happen.

The ”global collaboration network“. That’s how we have chosen­ to explain what IFES is, in three words. But to understand what IFES is you have to go into deeper detail. IFES represents more than 250 Companies from around the­­globe. Each of these companies has signed the IFES Code of Conduct – a kind of constitution which rules the collaboration within the whole network. So, if an IFES partner serves the customer of another member, both, the customer and member know that they will be treated in a professional manner from a company upholding the highest of quality standards. This is a value-added member benefit that is hard to put a price on. To enhance the number of partnerships within the IFES family, we are offering several opportunities to ”get to know one ­another.“ The most prominent is the IFES World Summit, which takes place every year in June. “Welcome to the Global ­Campus” is the theme for 2017 when we will meet in La-Grande-Motte, Montpellier. IFES Masterclass and IFES Certified Expert are two educational programs offered by IFES to ensure we have well-educated, global-thinking employees serving our industry. Both programs will run in November and December 2017. ”Support and be supported“ – that is the general idea of the federation. And we are proud to be a part of it. THE IFES BOARD

Beyond the Routine  of Everyday Life

In our first issue, IFES Worldview undertakes the task of highlighting designs for spatial communication and their sources of inspiration. We begin by consulting experts and IFES members, an admittedly subjective selection process which we fully acknowledge to our readers. As an introduction to the topic, we begin by asking fundamental questions: How do creatives actually find their ideas? And what happens when they find these ideas? We hope you enjoy reading. UTA GORETZKY

06 | Beyond the Routine of Everyday Life

One might think that the designers at spatial communication have an ambivalent relationship to the concept of ”a trend.“ On one hand, the cover stories of relevant specialist media this January promise forecasts of the emerging trends for 2017, a predictable playing of the same tune, year after year. On the other hand, when I ask designers for their under­ standing of the term ”trend“ they are critical of the subject. ­U nderstandable! After all, no one wants to be suspected of following a trend. In order to remain competitive as a design office, it is essential to monitor trends that by definition represent a widespread application of a design principle. Alexander Gialouris, design director at KMS Blackspace, firmly believes that studying contemporary trends requires looking beyond the design aspect and studying the total overview of the trend. ”After all, the ­e xciting thing about our design of spatial productions is that we become a ”temporary specialist“ on a different topic with every new project. If a designer’s work creates a design trend, it is not a creative failure. Yet designers of spatial communi­ cation today remain suspicious of drawing inspiration from trends. Why? Today, life in an average design office requires creatives to spend a lot of time in front of the computer. So what do ­agencies offer their employees for daily creative inspiration? The culture of inspiration at Blackspace consists of weekly lectures (among other things) but also leaves room for experiments in their in-house VR lab. To provide some additional ­inspiration Blackspace deems necessary, employees also ­receive an offering of what the firm calls ”Blackmoney.“ Blackmoney ensures that each employee is financially supported to freely choose external sources of inspiration, according to their individual interests. The only prerequisite is that the recipient must present impressions gained before the whole team, in order to ”broaden the horizon“ of all employees. When asked about their additional sources of creative ideas, ­designers ­repeatedly named relevant media. But the communication agency r211 in Düsseldorf, seeks and finds inspiration with

topics beyond the relevant design channels – calligraphy workshops or regular city dinners, for example. This concept also provides inspiration at the Hamburg­ design studio, I Like Birds, known for their memorable editorial images of spatial installations. I Like Birds, was founded by ­S usanne Kehrer and André Gröger. Both Kehrer and Gröger acknowledge that they rarely seek inspiration in their own work environment. ”This creates a very limited space for self-interpretation and associated inspiration, because a solution is ­a lready given,“ explains Gröger. ”Creative ideas find their way into art, because the art provides an opening for self-inter­ pretation,“ adds Kehrer. Liberation from the professional bubble allows design professionals to gain inspiration from momentary impressions of everyday life – inspiration which would otherwise be unforeseen. Professor Lutz Engelke, founder and managing director of Triad, never knows when a snapshot of daily life will happen. His camera serves him as an ”associate that archives each ­o pportunity.“ The project ”Mécaniques Discursives“ by AntiVJ also leaves behind the routine design found in everyday life. Artists ­Yannick Jaquet and Fred Penelle combine seemingly opposing techniques from widely divergent eras. Gutenberg meets Big Data – the merger of wood engraving with projection mapping and data visualization succeeds! Minutely planned and absurdly poetic at the same time, ”Mécaniques Discursives“ appears like a perpetual mobile. Each of the twenty-five installations in eleven countries provides a new, independent work, thus visualizing inspiration through the design process. ”The project is an ongoing experiment. We have lots of fun ­together because we believe that it’s not fun to do the same thing every time, ”explains Yannick Jaquet. So where does he find inspiration? ”The absurdity of our society is an endless source of inspiration. As people, we need to find ways to mentally survive in our crazy era. Being an artist, and doing what we do, is one of the solutions we found.“ TE XT CON STAN ZE

The best of CES EXHIBITOR Magazine ranks the most remarkable exhibits from the 2017 International Consumer­ Electronics Show. Held annually at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the International Consumer­ Electronics Show isn’t just the largest trade show in­the United States by every measure; CES also sets the bar for global exhibiting trends at the onset of each calendar year. The 2017 show featured 2.5 million square feet of show-floor space and more than 3,800 individual e ­ xhibits. And EXHIBITOR magazine editor Travis Stanton saw every last one of them. After four days, 50 miles of aisles, and nearly 4,000 booths to consider, he arrived at a list of the 20 most impressive booths from CES 2017. We show eight of them. 10 | The best of CES

Many exhibits at the annual International Consumer Electronics Show fall into the category o ­f what some might call “depart­ ment­s tore booths,” where several product lines under a wide cor­ porate umbrella are apportioned individual slices of a company’s booth space. Even the best of them often end up looking more like shopping malls full of dis­ parate stores and kiosks than well-­branded corporate exhibits. Relying on brand hues, monochromatic carpeting, or au courant finishes to serve as cohesive threads capable of tying un­related product groupings together, designers make a valiant effort, yet often succeed in little more than offering up disjointed-­ experiences as attendees pass from one vignette to another. But LG Electronics broke the mold with this exceptionally curated assemblage of individual parts, creating a CES experience where surprise and delight were around every corner. From the tunnel of 4K OLED curved screens to the captivating kinetic installation re­ presenting the “nano cell” tech­no­ logy behind the company’s Super UHD HDR offerings, the exhibit was absolutely memorable and the undeniable star of CES 2017.

Like an enchanted garden that had been tipped on its head, the exhibit for Changhong Electric Co. Ltd. invited attendees to walk beneath a star-like sky of glowing, crimson-colored lotus flowers. Merging two significant symbols in Chinese culture (the lotus, which represents perfection; and the color red, signifying good fortune), the design may have foretold its own success. The focal point of the zen-like space was an in-booth theater placed beneath a massive fabric lotus flower that hovered overhead.

#3 How do you put a sole automobile center stage, ensure excellent sight lines for VIP visitors, and position your brand as an indisputable trailblazer? You follow Faraday & Future Inc.’s lead and erect a literal show-floor stadium with your product as the centerpiece. Designed and fabricated by Pinnacle Exhibits Inc., the layout of Faraday’s booth attracted throngs of onlookers, while VIPs and members of the press were invited to step inside the space or climb the stairs for a bird’s-eye view from a platform that ran the length of the back wall. The FF91 self-driving electric car was parked front and center like a national treasure in a brilliant jewel box, while an LED screen provided a futuristic backdrop, setting the scene for a superbly executed single-product display. 11


#4 In our increasingly eco-­ minded era, reuse is definitely in vogue. So kudos to Select Comfort Corp.’s Sleep Number brand (and Southfield, MI-based exhibit designer JGA) for repurposing its 2016 exhibit with a stark-white color scheme and a tantalizingly brilliant twist. The tensioned-fabric structure remained, along with a pair of aisle-side displays atop pedestals (which seemed to elevate both the products and their prestige), but Sleep Number swapped out last year’s psychedelic, color-changing light show for cool, white illumination that bathed the booth and made the entire space seem to glow from within. But the piece de resistance was a series of flatscreen monitors running informational content. Positioned parallel to the floor and above five of the company’s 360 Smart Beds, the screens’ location meant interested visitors had to lay down and test out the product in order to learn more.

#7 This lavender-lit exhibit for the #5

A clean, artful simplicity and restrained use of structure and graphics made this dramatically illuminated exhibit for Falsetto LLC’s Link, a product that allows users to store and easily share data, a purple-hued white space on the trade show floor. Nothing in the booth shouted at visitors, the violet lights didn’t pulse, and there were no flashy gimmicks, which is exactly what made this successfully simple booth sing. Designed and fabricated by ExhibitTrader. com Inc. Southwest Displays and Events, the exhibit also featured a video wall embedded into a supersized replica of the Link itself. But the eye-catching focal point comprised a 20-foot string-art sculpture made using hand-painted cloth strapping – referencing the product’s ability to stream information to multiple devices simultaneously – surrounded by six tablets that quietly but effectively beckoned to curious passersby.

Linksys brand, which took up just a portion of the Belkin International Inc. booth space, dropped one spot on our Best of CES list since 2016. While the space, designed and fabricated by Pinnacle Exhibits Inc., was equally eye-catching, attracting attendees like mosquitoes to a beautiful, glowing bug zapper, the interactives seemed somehow less inviting than last year, prompting passersby to snap a picture and keep on keeping on, rather than stepping into the amethyst environ.

#6 High-tech wizardry can go horribly wrong, but Honda Motor Co. managed to use some of the exhibition industry’s hottest techno tools in absolutely artful ways. Beneath a series of angular ceiling elements, booth visitors were treated to a symphony of experiential elements. The exhibit’s use of lighting, projection, virtual reality, and large-scale multimedia was both thoughtful and thoroughly successful. And best of all, the booth – which was designed by George P. Johnson – was staffed with knowledgeable brand reps at the ready to help CES attendees make sense of the sometimes surreal special effects.

#8 The exhibit for Samsung Elec­ tronics Co. felt like a futuristic museum of next-generation necessities. While some of the individual displays seemed to deviate slightly from the design’s denouement – and the dramatic QLED theater paradoxically raised more questions than it answered – the exhibit succeeded in enveloping attendees in the Samsung brand and serving them up a series of product-centric experiences. 12

Resourceful d   esign in Africa

Fabric The uptake of tension fabric displays in Africa has been rapid, not only for exhibition stands, but also for the complete infra­ structure at trade shows – such as We Are Africa and the Good Food & Wine Show. Justin Hawes is the MD of Scan Display, one of the first South African companies to offer this solution. He explains that the development of the technology for the use of fabric in exhibition structures has given designers almost unlimited potential in how they use fabric in their designs. “A strong preference for using fabric is driving this innovation,” says Hawes. “This is because it is cost-effective, the complete fabric solution (graphics and structural framework) can be produced quickly, it is light and compact for easy transportation (which is important considering the typically long distances between cities), and it is re-usable. Additionally, most labour in Africa is unskilled, so having a product that can be easily assembled and still look slick and professional is also valued.” Another advantage is that a lot of these practical benefits, such as its re-usability and small transport footprint, also benefit the environment.

Repurposing Using unconventional materials is also a popular design trend, as it allows designers to experiment with a variety of substances in a part of the world where local production is sometimes limited, and importing materials takes time and can be expensive. Nicholas de Klerk, a designer and the owner of Design and Display, is especially passionate about repurposing unexpected items as stand materials, such as everyday consumer products like cling wrap, hangers, sponges, match boxes, plastic spoons and egg trays. By incorporating the unexpected into a display, he can evoke surprise and humour. De Klerk says, “I always try to inspire humour, as I believe that if you can put a smile on people’s faces, you have them in the palm of your hand!” De Klerk also enjoys making what he calls “low tech animations”. These are graphic impressions that he creates within the stand design, which animate with movement – either from the wind, light, or a change in perspective. Aside from its creative appeal, repurposing also has a positive environmental impact, as most of the items are re-usable and can be donated post-show, or else they are recyclable. Natural materials The use of natural materials, especially wood, on exhibition stands is also on the rise. Jacob van Zyl, an exhibition and retail designer at Scan Display’s Cape Town office, says, “Designers are mixing natural materials with clean and sleek stand elements, to create contrast and texture, and grab attention.” 16

Using local materials in their natural state also allows designers to give their work an authentic African aesthetic. The availability of these materials, and using them without varnishes or painting, is in keeping with the movement towards greater sustainability. Plus they can be easily re-used, so can be donated to communities in need after being used. PHOTOS SCAN DISPLAY,

arde is an urban instal­ lation located in Vallero Square, in the heart of Israel. This dynamic installation is part of the municipality’s effort to improve the urban space of the city center. The existing square was in poor condition. Divided by the tram line into two urban spaces with no supporting program around them, it was filled with inevitable urban facilities such as a waste composter and an electricity substation. A patchwork of ongoing landscape fixes attempted to save an environ­ ment that was incoherent. Warde’s attempt was not to fight the chaos, but instead to try and “tie the urban space together.”, To spread around such fantastic elements so, that on one hand, they would overcome the reality of the square, and on the other hand, they would be able to stand along in the nonrealistic setting of Jerusalem. Four giant flowers were care­ fully positioned to be viewed from all around the square, and from

the market nearby. Each is separately inflated and reacts to the situation around it, so that whenever pedestrians walk by, the flowers inflate and open up, and then deflate and close as the people walk away. If a bypasser is looking for a moment of shade during the hot summer days, the flower will inflate and stay open until the person leaves. When the tram is approaching the station all four flowers will inflate at once and signal the shoppers to hurry if they want to catch the tram. The result – the Urban space suddenly reacts to the people using it.

educed to the essentials, space means no more and no less than a section of a building enclosed by walls, floor and ceiling. But how much space do we really need – on a business trip, on vacation, at work, to live? Can we say, the more the merrier? Or should we take literally the Japanese proverb ”Dai wa sho o kaneru“: Less is more? The discussion of such questions is stimulated not least by the growing density of cities and the realization that square meters alone does not qualify judgement about the quality of a room.

fter competing plans and differences of opinion over what to do with the former Palacio de Correos, a proposal arose to build a new urban unit – a civic space with value and identity to reverse the condition of fragmentation and deterioration of perhaps the most emblematic area the city – transforming it into a cultural link between the historic city center and the area of Puerto Madero. After competing plans and differences of opinion over what to do with the former Palacio de Correos, a proposal arose to build

a new urban unit – a civic space with value and identity to reverse the condition of fragmentation and deterioration of perhaps the most emblematic area the city – transforming it into a cultural link between the historic city center and the area of Puerto Madero. The old post office building was designed as a freestanding object. A proposal from B4FS Studio meant that the new Cultural Centre of the Bicentennial would become a key element in the spatial composition of the new Urban Park. The old building was made into an active and vibrant building to pass through, blending with the city from a plane of use split into several levels accessible to passerbys from the park. It would again become, as it was in the past, an iconic object within the city. B4FS found value in the heritage and history of this academic building, and felt it should be maintained. They preserved the building‘s representative visual aspect; its order, symmetry, planes and edges. There is no sense of modern intrusion; its exterior and ceremonial areas of the palatial interior are preserved in full.  25

When a nation is about to reinvent itself, big things can happen. For the Astana 2017 EXPO, Kazakhstan commissioned itself a huge museum bowl with a ­c ircumference of 90 Meters and an overall height of 99 Meters. The exhibition space includes the ­N ational Pavilion of Kazakhstan on level 1 and a ­t hematic exhibition with an exhibition space of over 10.000m2 spread over 7 floors. The fit-out works are complex and are carried out by three European companies, among them ADUNIC, a new member of IFES. Jürgen Fischer, project director of ADUNIC ­reveals an interesting insight into the making of this world class exhibition and the challenges to work in an alien environment.

The “Sphere” is the landmark of the EXPO 2017 in Astana. It builds the centre of the circular architecture of a completely new infrastructure that hosts the next World EXPO from 10 June – 10 September 2017. The construction of the Sphere has started well over two years ago. The slender steel structure is covered with a high-tech façade in curved glass. The impressive bowl contains the National Pavilion of Kazakhstan (Level 1) and a thematic exhibition emphasizing the main topic of the EXPO “Future Energy”  29


The National Pavilion The National Pavilion of Kazakhstan takes on the theme “Under One Sky” and is located at the base of the Sphere. On one hand, the National Pavilion blends with the main theme of EXPO 2017 “Future Energy”, On the other hand’ the exhibition aims to identify national uniqueness. It showcases multinational culture and unique landscapes but also acts to communicate ideas for the future development of Kazakhstan. One part of the exhibition immerses the visitors into a metaphorical journey. It shows the wisdom of the past and draws conclusions for the future and respective potentials. The climax of this experience is a virtual “journey to the horizon” taking visitors on an imaginary ride into space to return to a future Kazakhstan. A second part of the National Pavilion is largely free flow ex­ hibition focusing on the future of energy and culture in Kazakhstan. This area includes exhibition elements showcasing Kazakhstan’s leading innovation organizations.

When entering the top level, the visitor is welcomed to Future Astana – a reflection of the Kazakh capital in 2050. The sculptural city model describes the vision of the city’s ambitions towards sustainable development. At the end, a glass skywalk brings the visitor to the core centre of this impressive

INTERVIEW ADUNIC

ADUNIC, new member of IFES is involved in this gigantic EXPO project in Astana. In early February, IFES met ­J ürgen Fischer, project manager of ADUNIC in Astana and responsible for the realisation of this demanding exhibition project. In an interview, Jürgen Fischer ­p rovided IFES with an insight view of the project. His ­a nswers may allow you to get a first idea of the com­ plexity of such a fast-track project, its cultural challenges and the difference­s to the realisation of other exhibitions. IFES Jürgen, a couple of weeks ago, you started the production of the exhibition elements. What was necessary to get to this point and when do you expect that you can hand over the project? Fischer It took more than two years to get to this point. In late 2014, I visited Astana for the first time. ADUNIC was invited to have a look at the preliminary design and to comment on costs, feasibility and timeline. Since then, we have been working closely with Sembol, main contractor of the Sphere and our client. It was a long process of defining and refining the design until we got to the point of starting the production. And it is still a long way to go to the handover by end of April 2017. IFES Besides the technical tasks, what were the main challenges? Fischer Firstly, it was a chal­ lenge to get the content of the exhibition defined. As in other World EXPOs, the Organiser of Astana 2017 is ambitious but not 32 | Astana | IFES Memberslist 2017, The Sphere Project

experienced in managing a world EXPO. Used to clear and fast decisions in comparable projects in Europe, we had to learn that the local culture is different. Final decisions are not taken unless the president of the country is giving his ok. This takes time and teaches you to be patient. IFES What about other cultural challenges? Fischer Astana is a young city and Kazakhstan a young country. When you tour the city, you feel the pride of this nation to present itself to the world. As in other pro­ jects, we try to merge our inter­ national experience with the local network and to make use of the enthusiasm of the people for this EXPO. A year ago, we have founded ADUNIC Kazakhstan, a fully licensed construction company. It allows us to provide a complete service and to tap the local network comprehensively. IFES Astana is about 5’000 km east of central Europe and – in winter

time – five hours ahead of Central European Time MEZ. How do you cope with that? Fischer You are right. Logistics and communication are indeed challenging. Our project team is spread across a couple of countries: Switzerland, Germany, Turkey and Kazakhstan and we operate in three different time zones. During the design phase, we were forced to “commute” between the different hubs. Now, as we are in the realisation phase, the core team is more and more located here in Astana and communication within the team is easier. In the same time, logistics becomes the main challenge now. Thanks to our local set up we are able to procure an important part locally. But the necessary high-end A/V equipment and interactive exhibits are mainly a product of inter­ national specialists and do have to be imported. To get this all here in time is a daily struggle and involves a lot of administrative tasks. Luckily we can count on strong partners,

be it locally but also international logistics specialists. IFES How did you set up your team in Astana? Fischer On a project management level, we do have a strong team of more than 30 people, consisting of designers, project managers, site supervisors and administrative staff. In the peak time, around March and April 2017, we will coordinate a crew of more than 200 craftsmen, specialists and local suppliers. Each level is assigned to a dedicated team. Pro­ curement and logistics are coordinated centrally. It is satisfying to see that this colourful mix of European, Russian and Kazakh citizens work hand in hand. IFES Thank you, that all sounds exciting. We wish you a successful project finish and look forward to seeing it all in operation in June!

The German Pavilion at EXPO 2017

EVENT EXPO 2017 REALIZATION MAC CONCEPT GTP2, INSGLÜCK

T

he EXPO 2017 project is definitely not business-as-usual even for a trade fair builder like mac messe- und ausstellungscenter Service GmbH of Rhineland-Palatinate with more than 40 years of experience. In cooperation with the lead agency insglück and the architectural company gtp2, they will make the German Pavilion at EXPO 2017 a reality, in the Kazakh capital of Astana. The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) is responsible for the German involvement; the Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH (HMC) will organize and operate the pavilion under the EXPO motto ”Future Energy“. The bidding consortium made up of insglück, gtp2 and mac edged out six other competitors in the final round of an EU-wide tendering procedure in May 2016.

34 | The German Pavilion at EXPO 2017

The energy transition ”Made in Germany“ is the pavilion’s theme. ”The visitor embarks on a kind of adventure tour,“ says insglück Managing Director Detlef Wintzen. ”While he makes his way through the pavilion, he can learn about the significance of the energy transition in ways that are both entertaining and emotional. The perspective begins at a global level and proceeds to local and personal levels.“ When the visitor enters the pavilion, he receives a SmartStick with which exhibits can be activated, background info can be called up and knowledge collected. Eighteen exhibits present the areas of solar energy, wind power, geothermal energy, biomass energy and hydropower. Although the syndicate members insglück, gtp2 and mac are working together in this constellation for the first time, they have known one another for years. ”We got to know each other as members of the industry association FAMAB e.V. and grew to appreciate the others’ work. That’s why we did not hesitate when gtp2 Managing Director Antony de Taranto asked if we wanted to take part in the bidding for the German Pavilion,“

says mac Managing Director Gernot Becker. Their cooperative efforts are running smoothly. ”We commu­ nicate in completely different channels,“ says the gtp2 managing director. ”In addition to our regular and frequent meetings, we often telephone via Skype. All our data are stored in a cloud so that everyone has access to the documents and can work on them at the same time.“ The work is clearly allocated. mac is responsible for the structural realization of the project, that is, the facade design and interior construction of the German Pavilion. The trade fair experts are also plan­ ning and coordinating the technical

equipment, including smoke detectors, air conditioning, sanitary facilities and sprinkler system. gtp2 has the responsibility for architectural management and insglück for creative development, design and implementation. More than anything else, the logistics of the project pose a great challenge. For the first time ever the EXPO will take place

in Central Asia. The city of Astana, which has no access to the sea, lies more than 4300 kilometers in a straight line from headquarters in Langenlonsheim. Trucks carrying structural parts to the site will be on the road for more than one week. ”Think local, act global“ is the chosen motto. All the engineering or construction design will take place at Rhineland-Palatinate, with most services provided directly in Kazakhstan. The trade fair experts can fall back on a worldwide network of active partners, including IFES members in Turkey and Russia, for additional assistance. Apart from the logistics, many other aspects differ from everyday business. ”A presence at a world exhibition cannot be compared to a trade fair booth,“ Becker says. ”We know all about the spatial and technical conditions for a fair, but in Astana everything is different.“

Therefore, the team has to familiarize themselves with the conditions on site. What are the customs and import regulations, how do the local laws and building codes differ from Germany’s,

A presence at a world exhibition cannot be compared to a trade fair booth. what are the requirements for fire protection and static electricity? All these issues have to be clarified in advance. Where cultural differences are concerned, mac has the advantage of having worked for many years in Central Asia. Besides the previously mentioned partner network, the company has had its

own branch office in Shanghai since 2000. Consequently, they know the market and the local mentality very well. For Kazakhstan in particular mac has two aces up its sleeve. An employee who comes from Kazakhstan is thoroughly versed in local customs and traditions and an architect who is based in Astana. The world exhibition will take place from 10 June to 10 September 2017. In January construction work­ ing began at the pavilion’s facade and interior, which covers nearly 1700 square meters. Sometimes work has to be done at outdoor temperatures close to minus 30 degrees Celsius, just one more challenge that makes this project very special. TEXT IFES

KAZAKHSTAN

Astana. Prototype of the Eurasian city

n 1997, it was decided to move the Kazakh capital from Almaty to Akmola, today known as Astana, which stands for “Capital” in Kazakh. Together with local companies, the new capital was built by Turkish, Italian, French and Swiss companies. Every year 60 to 100 middle and large size facilities were built. Rapid construction a ­ nd widespread popular support made it possible to build a modern city in the steppes of Kazakhstan in the space of 10 years. Another 10 years later, Astana becomes the host city EXPO 2017

which is a recognized EXPO, also referred to as an international specialized EXPO, and is part of the World’s Fair system. Recognized EXPOs are smaller versions of the Universal EXPOs commonly referred to as World’s Fairs. Recognized EXPOs center around a parti­ cular theme and are held between World’s Fairs, which occur every five years. Kazakhstan has chosen the theme “Future Energy”. EXPO 2017’s Future Energy theme will promote efforts to find sustainable energy solutions to meet growing global demand.

Registan Square, the centerpiece of Samarqand

Kazakhstan’s choice of the topic reflects the recognition by the country’s lea­ders and policymakers that even its vast reserves of ­n atural energy resources are ultimately finite and that eventually the country, and the rest of the world, will have to make the transition to alternative energy sources and greener economies. The organizing committee in Astana is expecting 5 million visitors during the 3 month’ runtime from 10 June until 10 September, 2017. The planning so far promises visitors an impressive fiction of the future way of life of the people on earth, which are divided into 5 thematic areas. The entire EXPO site is conceived under sustainability aspects.

Thematic pavilions are the key objects demonstrating the theme of the exhibition, where each of the four pavilions reveals its theme: The pavilion World of Energy presents energy as a separate phenomenon and reveals possible solutions for a more sustainable energy development in the future with the help of physics, science experiments, etc. The pavilion Energy for the Future illustrates the concept of energy saving and energy efficiency. A separate exposition is dedicated to the practical aspects of smart cities, presenting the pro­ject Smart Astana etc. The pavilion Energy for All presents the mechanisms of access to energy for the planet’s inhabitants, research of energy market globalization etc. The pavilion “My Future Energy” focuses on personal responsibility for efficient and economical use of energy. The fifth area is reserved for Country presentations where all kind of solutions to the theme of future Energy were shown. IFES Travels to EXPO 2017 and conti­n ues on the silk road.

cues, background information on different presentations and a look behind the scenes of a World EXPO are coming along with this trip. And inspiration might raise when traveling from the modern Astana to parts of the oldest trade route the Silk Road in Uzbekistan. The Silk Road was one of the most important trade routes in the Middle Ages and led from the Mediterranean via Uzbekistan to China. Since then, it has been connecting Europe and Asia. In the world-famous Registan of Samarkand, Prince Timur once judged his people. Centuries later it became Turkestan, then part of the Soviet Union and finally the Republic of Uzbekistan in 1991. Today, there are green instead of red passports, a new national anthem, the official language is Uzbek. What is left are Breath­ taking minarets, medresen and mosques telling of the campaigns and conquests of Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan and Tamerlan. So, inspiration will be guaranteed.

IFES Global Village

The story behind the story TEXT IFES

During EuroShop, the leading trade show for shop-fitting and exhibition design, IFES will present itself together with 18 members. We call it the IFES Global Village. Here, partners will meet, find answers, enhance their business, or simply enjoy a cup of coffee. 42 | IFES Global Village

T

he IFES Global Village will be situated in Hall 4, Stand F36. Besides the Global Village, IFES is content partner of the Expo + Event Forum also situated in Hall 4. The Expo + Event Forum aims to create an added value for the visitor, providing latest news on trends, innovations and best practice. The Forum will run during EuroShop hours and be free of charge. When attending a trade fair as an exhibitor, the intention of an exhibition construction company is to show their vision, their design creativity and the realization of the ideas through their craftmanship. The designer of the booth, Hans de Wit, has created a space offering the above to all of the 18 partners. His concept – open to the outside – offers the exhibitors the possibility of presenting their businesses in a kind of virtual cube of a dimension of 3 m x 3 m x 4 m. Thanks to this concept, all the 18

exhibitors can have creative freedom and, at the same time, they can take advantage of a market place of possibilities created in the center of the booth. This area will be filled with IFES activities. The Global Village is a very particular kind of joint participation. Companies from A = Argentina to ZA = South Africa are presenting themselves on an area of 660 m2. IFES is placed literally in the heart of this space, in the middle of all its members and, of course, IFES welcomes all members, future members, partners and friends of the International Fairbusiness to this market place. In addition to the opportunity of finding future partnes, visitors will find all kind of information regarding ongoing IFES projects. Hospitality and cordiality have always been very important to IFES. In order to emphasize the warm and informal atmosphere,

there will be catering for the entire duration of the exhibition which will encourage visitors to relax and return. As a tradition, each village has its own village festival. The Global Village will have its festival on the evening of the second day of Euro­ Shop, on March 6th, at 5.00 p.m. ”Block Party Time“ will be an attraction also to other exhibitors. In addition to that, IFES Global Village is a prototype booth in many ways. It is built and con­ structed from materials that have never been used before at trade fairs in Germany. The central part of the booth, for example, is built from a carbon-fibre coated ceramic surface and the infoscreen consists of a semi-transparent LED surface. Furthermore, all movements on the booth will be tracked. This will help to compile information on visitors’ activities on the booth. IFES Global Village is not only a global network but also a global source and marketplace of innovation.

ICE The IFES Certified Expert

TEXT JÖRG BEIER

n today’s fast developing exhibition business, top managers stand out through sound strategic thinking and well-developed professional expertise. Being aware of these challenges, IFES offers a certification program for the exhibition and event service industry. The program is named “IFES Certified Expert (ICE)” and provides professionals with an educational program, which stands for stateof-the-art knowledge and a net­ work dedicated to helping them face new challenges and acquire new business on a global basis. 52 | The IFES Certified Expert

The Target Groups Managers, skilled work forces and project managers of stand building and event service companies are invited to participate in the up­ coming ICE program. Three years of experiences in the industry is recommended before attending. The education program will help attendees to improve their professional qualifications. IFES partners with the Coope­ rative State University in Ravensburg, Germany, to train exhibition industry professionals to meet tomorrow`s event management demands. The trainers and lec­ turers being responsible for the ICE program are international experts from the industry and from universities.

The Program The program emphasizes on subjects concerning the entire stand building and exhibition service industry and in addition consists of disciplines that are related to the meeting industry (e.g. trade shows, special events). The total program includes 130 teaching hrs. The participants are able to compose their own program of minimum 100 hrs. corresponding to their own specific interests and needs. The whole program contains four modules. The participants personally meet during the first session, which lasts five days. They have the opportunity to get to know each other and to establish networking groups. Three additional modules are embedded in an e-learning program, which keeps going for approx. four months. Additionally, the participants work together in joint projects.

On one hand, the comprehensive training program considers the cross-function character of exhibition management. On the other hand, the subjects embrace the various working areas that stand builders and exhibition service agencies cope with. The Modules The face-to-face module 1 is de­­di­ cated to an introduction into the ICE program. The attendees learn how to run international projects, are taught how to sell their pro­ ducts and services and get to know the differences of stand building in various countries. The core element of the e-learning sessions is an internet platform where all documents of the program are lodged. There is also the

opportunity for collaboration of the students. The documents can be downloaded on the participant’s tablets or other devices. This way, the participants are flexible when and where to study their material. The structure of the following three modules includes three different sections each: one segment consists of subjects related to general management; another segment has a focus on exhibition management; the third segment concerns subjects directly related to the stand building and exhibition service industry. Content: General Management The basic idea of the ICE program is to enable managers and skilled work forces to run their companies

better, more sustainable and successful. Therefore, the ICE program subjects more related to general management. These are: ‘Intercultural Management’ to demonstrate the internationality of the industry. ‘Risk and Crisis Management’, as this is an essential accompaniment of our actual business life. ‘Controlling, Finance and Accountancy’ to steer and supervise the company’s KPIs. ‘Strategic Management’ to prepare the company for the future. ‘E-marketing and Social Media’ to keep pace with new media. ‘Customer Relationship Management’ as a management tool obligatory for success.

Content: Exhibition Management The more exhibition industry related subjects include the following education topics: ’Participation in Exhibitions’ allows participants to look behind their customers’ doors. ’Service Strategy and Organization’ is a topic that makes an assessment of own structures possible. ’Special Event Management’ as a tool enables participants to offer their own event projects. ’Sustainability’ is a ‘must’ for all responsible-minded managers. ‘Public Relations’ offers recommendations how to optimize the company’s public appearance.

Content: Exhibition and Event Services The more industry related part includes subjects that are directly linked to the professionals’ daily work, their products and services. These are: Technical Basics for Stand Building International Assurances and Contract Law Safety at Work Exhibition Logistic International Stand Building Regulations The ICE program gives a comprehensive vision and detailed methodologies to drive the participants’ careers forward.

T IFES stands  for sustainability Sustainability is definitely no longer considered a non-relevant item in the event business industry – and IFES is strongly involved on two fronts: imple­ menting sustainability into internal event management and sharing knowledge ­­ with its members, partners and publics.

Sustainability means much more than just reducing the environmental impact. It is about corporate and social responsibility. And first of all, it is about inno­ vation and long-lasting business improvements. Sustainability will be­ ­come unavoidable for key players! Sustainability fosters employees and customers engagements. Sus­ tainability commands recognition and will set our business or brand apart from the competitors. Sustainability can be a true business model and in many cases, it can positively impact a company’s bottom line.

indicators that make the congress even more valuable. The Sustainable Committee asked a partner to bring its expertise in this project. The results extracted by using the available calculators will allow IFES to take part in a virtuous approach, aimed at continuous improvement for future editions.

58 | IFES World Summit 2017

he IFES World Summit is the biggest and most important event that IFES offers to the ex­ hibition and event industry. Simply put, it is also the largest inter­ national gathering of service providers for exhibitions and event services. To host the expected 250 participants, a mini university called the “Global Campus” will be created. On the agenda are prestigious speakers, networking and brainstorming workshops, as well as tours and evenings out in Montpellier and La Grande-Motte. It will serve as an ideal context for learning and interacting with peers, as well as building an international professional network. A concrete, applicable program The mini-university has been created with two objectives: to provide the delegates with the keys to growth over the next 12 months, and to help you define your five-­ year strategy. All workshops and presentations are thus directly linked to the industries business areas and have been created based on expectations expressed by IFES members. At the first day delegates are invited to participate in a large collaborative workshop that will act as ice-breaker to allow to get to know each other better, and later will allow to examine expec­ tations with regards to the international federation IFES. It will open a discussion how the industry wishes to cooperate more effectively together.

Furthermore, the program activities­ will focus on five main themes: Design and new trends in ­exhi­bitions and events Trade shows through exhibitor’s eyes: exhibition halls, why attend trade shows, drawing inspiration from retail to create an immersive environment, and how to measure success at a trade show. Sustainable development with Romain Ferrari as a speaker and ISO 20121 New product and services Innovations Development of the EXPO and event industry in Pecha­ Kucha style. Key player from different countries are asked to present their facts in figures in a edutaining style. Among the various locations on the campus, an “around the olive tree” space will be dedicated to national partnerships while the “terrace” will house exhibitors. More free time will be given to members to allow them to interact beyond the roundtables. A festive and magnificent ­region to discover And by the way, there is another good reason to travel to the south of France: Montpellier is one of the most dynamic cities in France. Ranked among the “45 Places to Go” by the New York Times in 2012 and considered to be “the most seductive city in the French south” by The Telegraph, it was also named a primary business destination by the BBC. Although more modern (created in the

Chateau de la Mogère

1960s), La Grande-Motte also has much to offer. It is within this idyllic setting that the Summit will have an enchanting evening program. The welcome reception will take place on Wednesday evening at the Belambra pool­ side with dinner provided by the region’s best caterer. Another evening will be spent at a beach side restaurant, and the gala dinner will take place at a characteristic Montpellier chateau. Tours of Montpellier and La Grande-Motte have been organized for accompanying guests. And for those who want to stay a little longer: A tour of Montpellier and its surroundings will also be organized on Saturday (optional). A conference celebrating ­s ustainable development The 2017 conference will focus three major challenges of sustainable development. Organizers therefore undertake to: Limit the conference’s environmental impact (use of a single venue, ride/travel sharing, prevention of wastage and waste recovery efforts). Foster regional anchoring (giving preference to local service providers, responsible purchasing). Raise awareness of participants and suppliers on best practices and pass on a legacy for the entire industry (signage, integration of content related to best practices in event services during the conference). The conference is organized by IFES,

which has entrusted the planning of the conference to Duo and vol­ unteer members of French Touch and CREALIANS (a member of UNIMEV). As of the time of this magazine’s printing, sponsorship and exhibition booth opportunities are still available. Please contact us as soon as possible for more information at events@ifesnet.org.

MeetMe@ IFESGlobalCampus# IFES members and industry partner return to the University with 2 objectives: learn and network! As alumni, delegates will be hosted on the same Campus at the Belambra Resort in ­La  Grande-Motte next to Montpellier (South of France). What you can expect is that we share as much during the meetings as outside the meetings so let’s live together for 3 days!

The Spanish economy has grown strongly in 2016, led by domestic demand spurred by easy monetary policy in the euro area and a fiscal stimulus. The expansionary phase is expected to continue in 2017 and 2018. PORTUGAL GDP growth is projected to remain subdued, at about 1 ¼ percent in 2017 and 2018. High corporate leverage and a fragile banking sector will hold back private investment and still high unemployment will restrain consumption growth. As economic slack will persist, inflation will remain low.

GDP growth is projected to edge up to 1.6 % by 2018, as tax cuts and faster job growth support stronger private consumption. Business investment should also pick up owing to tax reductions and low interest rates. In turn, the unemployment rate should continue to gradually fall.

The Brexit referendum vote has reduced growth ­p rospects and ­increased volatility, as reflected by the large ­c urrency depreciation. Monetary policy has mitigated the ­immediate impact of the shock by stabilizing financial markets and shoring up consumer confidence. This projection assumes the United Kingdom will operate with a most favored nation ­s tatus after 2019, but there is considerable uncertainty about this, which will increasingly weigh­­on growth, and in particular ­p rivate investment, including foreign direct investment.

Economic growth is projected to remain solid, as a robust labor market, low interest rates and a mildly expansionary fiscal stance underpin consumption and residential investment. Demand from emerging market economies and euro area countries is expected to strengthen only slowly, holding back business investment. The unemployment rate will remain at historic lows. The current account surplus will fall somewhat but will remain high. GERMANY

GDP growth is estimated to have slowed to under 3 % in 2016, but is projected to pick up gradually to around 3 ¾ per cent by 2018. The Turkish economy continues to face geopolitical headwinds and unsettled political conditions, after having weathered a coup attempt in July and engaged in military operations in Syria. GREECE Growth has rebounded in the second half of 2016 and is projected to gain strength in 2017 and 2018 as structural reforms start to bear fruit, the conclusion of a policy review with creditors raises business and consumer confidence and the economic and political environment stabilizes.

Political Disruption in Arabic countries shows: economical and financial Analysis will fail not taking human beings into consideration when forecasting developments. Economic wealth due to Oil deposit did not only bring high net income but disparity and a high unemployment rate. The success of the political transformation depends on the distribution of wealth and the consideration of the people interests. NORTHERN AFRICA | MIDDLE EAST

With projected annual growth of 7.5 % in 2017 – 2018, India will remain the fastest growing G20 eco­nomy. Private consumption will be supported by the hike in public wages and pensions and by higher agri­ cultural production, on the back of a return to normal rain fall.

Economic growth is projected to rebound in 2017 and strengthen further in 2018, driven by household consumption and investment.

Economic growth is being supported by stimulus, but is set to edge down further to 6.1 % by 2018. At the same time, risks are rising. The economy is undergoing transitions on several fronts. Private investment will be reinvigorated by the removal of entry restrictions in some service industries, but held back by adjustment in several heavy industries.

Economic growth is projected to rebound strongly in 2017 and 2018 as the impact of recent reforms and changes in economic policy start to gain traction. Inflation remains high but it will gradually decrease. BRAZIL The economy is emerging from a severe and protracted recession. Political uncertainty has diminished, consumer and business confidence are rising and investment has strengthened. However, unemployment is projected to continue rising until 2017 and decline only gradually thereafter. MEXICO Economic activity has been resilient to sharply lower oil prices, weak world trade growth and monetary policy tightening in the United States. Domestic ­demand remains the main driver of economic activity. ARGENTINA

Economic growth is set to strengthen in 2017 and 2018, as an assumed fiscal stimulus boosts the eco­ nomy and the effects of dollar appreciation, declines in energy investment and a substantial inventory correction abate. Employment has risen steadily, although the pace is expected to ease somewhat in 2017.
