As the host of this summit, Wanyoo has announced the “Overseas Business Partner Alliance Program”, shared the experiences and methods which were accumulated over the past few years to the industry insiders, how to pursue the expansion and growth of overseas business together to achieve the mutual benefits。
The <2019 Global and China Internet Café Industry White Paper> was also published in this summit, which states the eSport game will accelerate the Internet Café converting to eSport studio and diverse the profit model soon. The founder and chairman of “Play for Dreams” Corporation, Mr. Huang Feng, also believes that the Internet Café has been embedded into the eSport industry chains deeply, including the theme activities, game event sponsor, team spokesperson, game relevant products development or cooperation with movie and TV episodes series. Internet café has been merged into eSport game joint development and is uptrending as the mainstream of the industry, in the meantime, the globalization of eSports is expediting as well. Given eSports becoming a hot topic in the world, the development of Internet Café, which is closely related to eSports industry, is also gradually improving in overseas markets.
Wanyoo began to explore the overseas market in 2014, opening its first overseas store in Sydney, Australia. Up to now, Wanyoo, with opening more than 800 stores worldwide, covering 83 cities in the world, include Sydney, Vancouver, New York, Singapore, Melbourne and London etc., the number of global members exceeding 16 million, is considered as the pioneer and leading player of China’s Internet Cafe industry.
Although the first Internet café was founded in the UK in 1994, the Chinese Internet café business model is actually leading the evolution of the global Internet Cafe industry. In comparison, Internet café model abroad seems to be simple and plain, both hardware and software fell behind, and lack of branding and standardization in management and operation, which cannot meet the complex needs of game players, social networking and eSport game.
Based on the overseas exploring practice of Wanyoo, besides empowering the overseas studios, Wanyoo also offers the training campus to support the Chinese eSports team. For instance, during Ti8, the Chinese Dota team was taken training in Wanyoo Vancouver studio; London studio was the official training base for 4AM,OMG,17,CL during the FGS global summit. On the other hand, Wanyoo is aiming to connect among the global game players and establishes a global eSports game platform without time and space limitation.

This June “Wanyoo Champion Arena LOL Global City Game ” attracted over ten thousand players around the world, the players from New York, London, Sydney etc., gathered in Shanghai, China, competed for the world championship, S8 world champion IG team came to field to cheer up the players too.

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 13 novembre 2019

Purpose of capital increase: Accelerate the miniaturization and functionality enhancement of the company’s sensor through semiconductorization, in order to expand the digital olfactory market. The compact odor imaging sensor developed by Aroma Bit is unique in that, unlike conventional gas sensors that can only detect specific substances, it is able to generate a visualization pattern from various odor inputs, similar to an animal’s sense of smell. Recently, there has been an increase in the number of inquiries and business discussions coming from both domestic and overseas customers, covering a wide range of possible applications beyond the company’s initial assumptions, including food and agriculture, daily necessities, cosmetics, industrial machinery, robotics, mobility, monitoring and health care, marketing, and more. This is proof of the company’s advanced technology and first-mover advantages.With the July 23, 2019 announcement of full-scale development of the ultimate next-generation compact odor sensor, which is small, inexpensive, and has high odor resolution (a next-generation CMOS-type odor imaging sensor capable of achieving odor resolution as high as a dog’s nose, on a 1 mm square), approaches from technology equipment manufacturers and IT companies around the world regarding collaboration projects, not only for odor sensor hardware, but also for the utilization of digital odor data, are increasing rapidly. Furthermore, the sense of smell is the least digitized of the five senses, and the market for digital olfactory technology is about to enter the takeoff phase.Through this third-party allocation of new shares, Aroma Bit plans to use their technical strength to achieve further miniaturization and increased functionality of their compact odor imaging sensor, and strengthen development for mass production. In addition, the company plans to strengthen and expand its management system to support the development and enhancement of new products and services that leverage its odor sensor hardware as well as the world’s first digital odor database, and to expand its sales and marketing systems globally.Aroma Bit will also continue to pursue the company’s vision of “Enriching society by achieving a world where odors and aromas are digitized through odor imaging technology.”
Today, Aroma Bit released their “Brand Vision Movie”, which portrays future life where smell is visualized – something that even Hollywood has not envisioned. Aroma Bit today released their Brand Vision Movie, which imagines the future brought about by technology that can visualize odors and convert them into data. A top-tier Japanese creative team has created the world’s first video that envisions the future that Aroma Bit aims to create, where the world of odors and aromas is digitized and visualized.

CWT Research Reveals 71% of Business Travelers Embrace Innovation

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 11 luglio 2019

Research by CWT, the B2B4E travel management platform, shows that 71% of global business travelers embrace travel innovation. Travelers from the Americas and Asia Pacific are more likely to favor it, with 75% and 71% respectively. Europeans, on the other hand, are warier of the changes – 7% of them stating a reluctance to embrace travel innovation versus 5% of Asia Pacific and 3% of Americas travelers.
Despite the fact that it is tempting to assume that younger age is a big factor when it comes to innovation acceptance, the results of this survey prove the opposite. Only Asia Pacific millennials score higher: 79% versus 75% of Generation X and 60% of boomers. In the Americas, Gen X travelers lead the way (78%), followed by millennials (76%) and boomers (70%), and in Europe millennials rank last at 64% after the two other generations at 67% each.“Technological innovation is the future, and frequent business travelers are already benefitting from its potential,” said Andrew Jordan, CWT’s Chief Product and Technology Officer. “Business travelers are people working away from home – so why wouldn’t they want to embrace innovations that make their journeys and their lives easier?”

Between tradition and innovation, a contemporary jewel rich in artistic and symbolic values

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 6 luglio 2019

Yvone Christa was founded in Los Angeles 1991 from the inspiration of two Swedish designers: Yvonne Clamf and Christina Söderström. From their first names, they created a brand that knew immediate success when a screenwriter, struck by their first collections, commissioned the jewelry for the stars of two major TV series: “Beverly Hills” and “Melrose Place”. Love for art and passion for fashion, design and architecture give life to a unique jewelry line that has conquered the States. Every piece of Yvone Christa jewelry is handmade with the ancient Venetian filigree technique: thin threads of silver, crafted into exotic patterns and treated with a particular procedure donating the jewels an antique finish.Yvone Christa colorful jewelry has a distinctive feminine and retro taste which the designers achieve with the careful choice of pearls, semiprecious stones and circular zirconia.Nature is a rich source of inspiration: the perfection of a rose, an orchid or a tulip. Petals, leaves and stems, but also insects, dew drops or a cloud. Whatever the sensitive eyes of the designers can grasp is carefully patterned with thin silver threads.The creations of YVONE CHRISTA have conquered the hearts of great figures in prominent circles. Actresses, supermodels, politicians even royals wear Yvone Christa and the style of the brand has spread across the globe.The two designers have also partaken in collaborations with important international art museums. One being with the Stockholm National Museum, who commissioned Yvone Christa the “The Butter Cup” collection on occasion of an exhibition of the jewels of the Russian Tsars. Likewise, the National Gallery of Art of Washington D.C. entrusted the designers with making the “Forget Me Not” collection which took inspiration from a painting by Van Huysum. Yvone Christa jewels are sold in the boutique of various art museums.The myth of a great artist stimulates the creativity of the designers who, in 2002, create a collection that has become a true icon of costume jewelry over time: it is the fascinating “Frida Kahlo” Collection. A blend of strong colors and feelings, emotions of the lifestyle of the Big Apple ’40s that marked the beginning of the painter’s artistic path. The big bohemian earrings, cult of the collection, are an expression of the feminine character, a synthesis of a woman who can impose her own personality. Subtle shapes, the daisy in bloom, the inlaid crescent moon and the rain of vibrant stones and colored pearls. In between tradition and innovation, a contemporary jewel rich in artistic and symbolic values signed Yvone Christa NY.

OECD Learning Framework Sets a Roadmap for Education Innovation

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 9 giugno 2019

In the 1970’s, Finland had an economic crisis. The stakeholders concurred that education was the foundation to improve quality of life and build a sustainable society for all its citizens. To achieve education excellence, the Finns looked beyond academic achievement and built a new model that was equitable, accessible and flexible, giving priority to human well-being, quality of life and happiness. Today, Finland is one of the world’s leading models for quality education.Global education publisher, advocate and futurist C.M. Rubin believes the world now faces a similar crisis. Since 2015, Rubin has been a contributor to the OECD’s four-year Future of Education and Skills 2030 study and the just released Learning Compass framework. The OECD’s new framework sets out a shared vision by widespread international stakeholders for what students should learn to be ready for the future. “Our planet faces numerous challenges as identified in the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals,” says Rubin. “I believe that every global challenge we face, whether it be climate change, health and well-being, wealth inequality, gender equality, or peace and prosperity can be conquered if we are willing to pioneer new models of lifelong learning and assessment.” She adds, “Our world has changed. Smart machines have edged their way into virtually every domain. What makes us human now matters more than ever. We need to understand our complex problems and determine what kind of learning models will resolve them.”
CMRubinWorld launched in 2010 to explore what kind of education would prepare students to succeed in a rapidly changing globalized world. Its award-winning series, The Global Search for Education, is a celebrated trailblazer in the renaissance of the 21st century, and occupies a special place in the pulse of key issues facing every nation and the collective future of all children. It connects today’s top thought leaders with a diverse global audience of parents, students and educators. Its highly readable platform allows for discourse concerning our highest ideals and the sustainable solutions we must engineer to achieve them. C. M. Rubin has published hundreds of interviews and articles discussing an expansive array of topics under a singular vision: when it comes to the world of children, there is always more work to be done.
