The World Library and Information Congress 2012, 78th IFLA General Conference and Assembly, will take place in Helsinki, Finland in August (12th-15th). Axiell will of course be there!
The congress theme this year is:Libraries Now! - Inspiring, Surprising, Empowering. To support that, Axiell has decided to have a theme in our booth based on a quote by Oscar Wilde: ”Expect the unexpected”. Our main attraction for the booth is to show what Arena can do – but of course also to talk about all our other products and solutions. The IFLA Conference is the world’s biggest conference in our business and around 4500 visitors are expected to the exhibition. Axiell will have staff from all our markets in place and we hope to meet many friends and customers – both old and new.
The booth will be a sort of art interactive event, where we will ask the visitors to put information in a ”wishing well”. An editorial group will then put the information in IFLA Arena, created for this event, and an artist will paint and illustrate live in the stand what has been written in Arena. We will also be represented in a poster session where Boris Zetterlund will talk around the subject ”When the light falls the Library shines”.
