Kaname Ikeda presenting ITER to a packed audience.
La Foire de Marseille is one of the biggest events in the region with some 400,000 visitors, and hundreds of stands, exhibitions and restaurants that are set up in the Parc Chanot exhibition park. ITER was there too! An exhibition stand jointly prepared by Agence Iter France, ITER Organization and Mission ITER attracted a stream of visitors, all curious to find out more about the project.
On 25 September, a press conference given by Catherine Cesarsky, Haut-Commissaire à l'Energie Atomique, Kaname Ikeda (IO), Colin Miège (Mission ITER), François Gauché (AIF) and Jean-Paul Clément, Director of the International School, kicked off the special 'ITER Day'. A series of presentations followed covering different aspects of ITER progress. The conference room was packed out during all the different talks - concrete proof of the great interest in ITER in the region.
The Foire de Marseille is open until Monday night, so take the opportunity to experience this exceptional local event and visit the ITER stand. Many thanks to all who worked hard to make ITER at the Foire de Marseille such a success. return to Newsline #101
