For Immediate Release
(Dubai, United Arab Emirates – 23 October, 2011) It’s time to talk retail real estate, and the Middle East Council of Shopping Centres (MECSC) could not be more thrilled to lead the conversation with its 2011 RECon MENA conference. Very similar to shopping centers, RECon MENA brings the industry together so that they can make connections, evaluate new products and services, and leave with some valuable goods in the form of networking, educational opportunities, and vital industry insights. As one of the Middle East’s largest retail real estate conventions, RECon MENA will be focused on perpetuating and promoting the success of the shopping centre industry in the Middle East and North Africa through the discussion of key topics including outlet retailing opportunities and the future of luxury. Taking place on November 28-29 at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, this year’s RECon MENA event is one of the industry’s most valuable assets.
“RECon Middle East & North Africa sets the stage year after year providing an exclusive opportunity for the industry to come together to network, share information, discuss ideas, evaluate opportunities and develop business partnerships,” said MECSC Chairman, Majid Saif Al Ghurair, president, Burjuman. “At this year’s RECon MENA, a majority of our discussions will be focused on ways in which we can strengthen retail real estate in the Middle East and North Africa, and in turn, our industry as a whole. We are looking forward to this year’s event, and can only foresee positive changes in the months to come.”
RECon MENA will kick off on Monday, November 28, 2011 with MECSC’s Chairman Majid Saif Al Ghurair’s welcome address, followed by a series of industry speakers. A variety of information will be provided including a global overview of retail projects and trends, as well as some examples of retail innovation and new thinking from around the world. In addition, useful insights will be given on how research and statistical resources can be used to make sound business decisions.
One of Monday’s most important discussions will regard outlet retailing’s untapped markets, and the opportunities it presents for brands in the Middle East. From the U.S. to Japan and China, to Western and Eastern Europe, outlet retailing has proven to be a precious commodity for the retail industry. It provides quite literally an outlet for brands to reach new customers, broaden their manufacturing, create operating efficiencies, regulate their image, and, of course, make additional profits. This discussion will primarily focus on the many benefits that outlet retailing has to offer the Middle East and how in today’s economy, nothing attracts consumers more than luxury goods at discounted prices.

BITEC, a favourite industrial and B2B events venue, formally announces today it plans to increase the percentage share of lifestyle events to 45% of its total events portfolio by 2013, compared to 32% in 2010. The move will avail the upscale and middle class neighborhood near and around BITEC, which remained has untapped to date.
“A total of 40 exhibitions were held at BITEC in 2010.Twenty-seven or 68% were industrial events, while 13 or 32%were lifestyle events. We are targeting to improve the percentage share of lifestyle events to 45% by the year 2013,” said Ms. PanitthaBuri, Director of Marketing & Sales, Director of Marketing and Sales, Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC).
“Overall, the number of events held in BITEC had been growing on average of 12% a year and in 2011 we will have over 45 exhibitions at our center,” she said.
“Our expansion of lifestyle events does not mean we are repositioning BITEC nor implying we are reducing our focus on industrial and B2B exhibitions,” said MsPanittha.
“Exhibition and eventsheld at BITEC, whether industrial, B2B or lifestyle can bank on the venue’s renowned operations team and proximity to the International airport,” she added.
“Our center will become even more accessible to participants with the completion of the BTS sky train which according to the BMA is due to start running to BITEC on 12 August, 2011. We are building a covered walkway connecting directly from the Sukhumvit Road to BITEC,” she said.
Ms. Panittha said lifestyle shows were complementary to industrial and B2B shows in the sense lifestyle exhibition or events would approach business visitors of B2B events as consumers with high purchasing power.
BITEC’s lifestyle events included Thailand International Furniture Fair (TIFF), Bangkok International Gift Fair and Bangkok International HousewareFair (BIG & BIH), Jim Thompson Sale, Homeworks Expo, Photo Fair and several furniture fairs.
Ms. Panitha said BITEC’s neighborhood was home to millions of consumers which had remained untapped to the fullest.

Bart Velthuizen of People Creating Value, a sponsor at the marcus evans Industrial Design Summit 2010, on superior innovation in product development.
Interview with: Bart Velthuizen, Chief Executive Officer, People Creating Value
Cannes, France, November 10, 2010 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Product design and development companies need to align their visions of technology and future consumer behaviours to enhance the chances of new breakthroughs, says Bart Velthuizen, Chief Executive Officer at People Creating Value. Companies that stand out are those who have found matches between the two. From a sponsor company at the marcus evans Industrial Design Summit 2010, in Cannes, France, 22 – 24 November, Velthuizen discusses his thoughts on aligning visions for superior innovation and creativity.
What makes a product user-centric?
Bart Velthuizen: Having a user-centric design methodology is the best way to ensure products are user-centric. Experts often ask potential consumers what their expectations of the future are, to build a picture of what people need or what they will need in the future. Product designers need to analyse and translate consumer insights into product specifications, and use that data to guide product development in a structured way.
What brings product loyalty?
Bart Velthuizen: Product loyalty comes from product quality. Manufacturers need to make simple and beautiful products which address and fulfil customer needs. The consumer will remember the quality next time he or she buys the product.
How can product design executives reach superior levels of creativity and innovation?
Bart Velthuizen: Innovation has hundreds of definitions. We chose the definition of people creating value through the implementation of new ideas. This is not about creating new ideas but implementing ideas and creating value in new ways.
Companies that stand out in the world do two things: they understand their customers’ needs and combine that with creative technology to get matches between the two.
What are some of the upcoming developments that the industry should prepare for?
Bart Velthuizen: There will be a scarcity of certain materials and we will need to find ways of using renewable or recyclable materials. There are also toxicity and environment issues to consider. The choice of material in product development is becoming more and more critical.
What long-term strategies would you recommend?
Bart Velthuizen: I would advise aligning visions of technological capabilities with visions of future behaviours. We will be seeing many companies working on brilliant ideas and not finding the right market, either because it does not exist or because there is no access to it.
If you have built a vision of how consumers are going to behave in the future you have to do the same with technology; organise a radar function to spot new and emerging technologies, and try to align those two visions into one long-term vision for your consumers and technology. Doing so will enhance the chances of finding a new breakthrough.

Thomas Novelli, the Chairman of the marcus evans Medical Device Manufacturing Summit Fall 2010, talks about improving efficiency and preparing for upcoming changes in the industry.
Interview with: Thomas Novelli, Vice President of Government Affairs, Medical Device Manufacturers Association
Hollywood, FL, September 16, 2010 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The medical device manufacturing industry needs to find ways of cutting costs and minimizing the impact of future excise taxes that the Health Care Reform will bring about, advises Thomas Novelli, Vice President of Government Affairs at the Medical Device Manufacturers Association. The Chairman of the marcus evans Medical Device Manufacturing Summit Fall 2010 taking place in Hollywood, Florida, December 5-7, Novelli discusses the need for cost cutting and where the opportunities for leaner production may lie.
What are some of the upcoming changes that medical device manufacturers should be prepared for?
Thomas Novelli: In the next few years, medical device manufacturing executives will have to adapt to the changes made in the new healthcare laws. One issue that will directly impact them is the 2.3 percent excise tax, therefore they will need to find ways to minimize this effect.
Looking forward, executives have to find much leaner production methods, cutting costs where possible. For example, they can look at their supply chain management systems. They should be finding more efficient approaches, minimizing distribution delays and executing high-quality manufacturing practices, such as six-sigma.
What long-term strategies would you suggest?
Thomas Novelli: In supply chain management systems, mid-sized companies are not as efficient as they could be. It is essential for them to look at the best practices in the industry – this could be industry leaders, or small companies like themselves. By looking at these practices, they can learn what they need to do to improve their Just-in-Time strategies and make sure that the product lifecycle process is being implemented and utilized to its fullest potential.
Medical device manufacturers should also be aware of new disclosure requirements. The law provisions require device manufacturers to disclose the payments that they make. In addition, they need to be prepared for the research division of the litigation, as a private public entity called The Patient’s Centre of Malcolm’s Research Institute will start to guide pairs within the healthcare system, such as Medicare and Medicate, and provide them with evidence on medical interventions, drugs, devices, and more. My advice is: target equipment gain, as technology is always moving forward, and the appropriate evidence is going to help you not only secure regulatory purpose problems, but reimbursement as well.
How can innovation in medical device manufacturing be enhanced?
Thomas Novelli: In order for innovation to take place, there has to be a favorable environment. The medical device industry is different from the pharmaceutical industry, in the sense that most of the innovation takes place in small or mid-sized companies. These smaller companies are developing innovative technologies and commercializing them themselves, or being acquired by larger corporations.
To have a favorable regulatory and legislative environment, there must be a clearly proven medical technology. In recent years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has become less predictable and timely for device application approval with the agency. This has led to a back-up of applications and venture capitalists who have invested in these companies and are choosing to stop due to problems they are seeing in the FDA. In order for investors to continue to invest and promote innovation, this situation must be resolved.
