NEW DELHI, INDIA: This year, Global Entrepolis @ Singapore 2007 (GES 2007) will see stronger collaboration and cooperation between participants and exhibitors in the technology field. Many new innovations are expected to be launched and showcased at The Enterprise Exchange, a technology-focused exhibition at GES 2007 where a large number of delegates from ASEAN, India, and China are expected to gather and interact. To date, 80 percent of exhibition floor space at The Enterprise Exchange has been booked, based around this year’s theme of Global Gathering, Growth Opportunities, and Green Initiatives.

This year, Neublick, a provider of readable sunlight LCD solutions for outdoor TV, and Murata, a manufacturer of electronics components and modules, are both showcasing exciting new innovations; a bicycle-riding robot and an interactive sandwich-board man respectively. Such inventions are an indication that robots with the ability of making their own independent decisions could soon be part of everyday life, taking over jobs that are too dangerous for humans, or serving as helpers and companions for the physically challenged.

The ‘Green’ theme at GES 2007 is illustrated by the participation of Agro Genesis, an agricultural nanotechnology solutions provider. The company plans to launch its Agro-Silica range of products which will offer multiple benefits, including yielding stronger and healthier plants, increasing crop yield and quality, increasing plant resistance, optimizing soil pH, and reducing the need for pesticides.

Among other confirmed exhibitors are Fujinon, an optical instrument manufacturer; BIG Interactive, a creator and provider of interactive digital media; Island Optical Systems, an optical system integrator; and Phion Technology, a company delivering next generation fashion electronic.

As part of the agenda at GES 2007, participants will have an opportunity to attend a series of conferences that focus on topics that matter most to businesses today. Among these is the E-Government Summit 2007, which will cover a range of issues facing both citizens and governments around e-government services. Participants of the E-Government Summit 2007 will include decision-makers from government agencies around the world.

Mr Gary Fung, Managing Director, Zenith Events Management Pte Ltd, said “Singapore, which was ranked first in Accenture’s annual e-Government report earlier this year, leads governments in engaging citizens through the internet. The E-Government Summit at GES 2007 is co-organised by the Singapore e-Government Leadership Centre (eGL), to share the advances Singapore has made, with the rest of the world. We are also pleased to announce that Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports, and Second Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts, has kindly agreed to be the Guest of Honor.”

Through GES 2007, technology companies will also be able to network with potential customers, partners, and investors. The event will act as a melting pot where CXOs, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs work synergistically to explore and exploit ideas and innovations to facilitate growth and business opportunities globally.

GES 2007 will be held from November 12 to15 this year at the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre. The event is jointly presented by the Singapore Business Federation and the Singapore Economic Development Board, and organized by Zenith Events Management.
