[www2012] Lyon, capital of the Web!
In 2012, Lyon becomes the world capital of WEB and will host, after the Innorobo fair, the World Wide Web Conference from April 16 to 20, 2012. It is no coincidence that the “www 2012” is held in Lyon: the agglomeration has many advantages in terms of the digital economy.
During the fair, you can meet, on the stand ONLYLYON, 15 companies selected for their innovative character: 109Lab, Adways, Alinto, Corexpert, eZ Systems, gPartner, Habitat, Innovation & Technologie, Katexpert, Kreactive, SnowQbe, SysFera, Gaeanova, Speedernet, Novius, Artilinki. ONLYLYON will also highlight the poles and clusters, associations, training and dedicated real estate.
But that’s not all ! Six agoras in the form of 30-minute workshops will be organized on theexhibition space for visitors.
As a preview, the interactive mapping of the digital sector produced by Asylum will be unveiled. It allows, in 1 click, to view and contact the 400 companies established in Lyon, and to build your address book of service providers and partners!
The moving image competitiveness cluster Imaginove organizes in parallel the GMCwww12 (Cross-Media Business Convention), Thursday April 19. This is a great opportunity to present your cross-media project and to meet potential partners: web companies, studios in the animation, video game, TV sectors …
On the other hand, there are infrastructures in Lyon that are adapted to the needs of digital companies and more specifically the web: real estate, telecom, data centers… We will especially remember the upcoming opening, in June 2012, of the Rives Numériques incubator within the Digital Center of Vaise.
The www2012 arouses the interest of the entire Lyon internet ecosystem: many offsets are offered to meet and discuss (aperitif ambassadors, start-up weekends, conference-debate at the University of Lyon 1, global media connect, twitt- wall…). What are we waiting for to find ourselves around a little traffic jam?
