Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux

Start date  :  23-mars-2016
End date  :  23-mars-2016
Piccadilly - London W1J 0BH
 
En Primeurs 2015 vintage: A great vintage is within sight Weather conditions were kind and each crucial step along the way was achieved successfully. Bordeaux needs a great vintage and the myth that says years ending in 5 (or 0) are great years for wine, lends itself well to the idea that 2015 will be an exceptional vintage. An exceptional vintage requires verification at a certain number of stages over the entire Bordeaux wine region and at the harvest in order to evaluate it correctly. Of course the true test is in the glass and after several years in bottle. In Bordeaux an exceptional vintage is characterized by a high level of tannins, silky tannins, along with good acidity and aromatic complexity. In order to have balanced tannins and acidity the wine requires a sufficiently rich alcohol level. These elements are necessary for the wine’s potential in their youth and for their ageing potential. Flowering is a crucial stage which takes place the first two weeks of June in exceptional weather conditions – warm, dry and sunny. The fruit set (when the grapes first start to form) should follow under the same climatic conditions. The final stages of the different grape varieties should ideally happen in August and September when the weather is warm but not excessively hot, with dry, sunny days and cool nights. Harvest: White and sparkling wines Harvest for the earlier grape varieties is Sauvignon, which begins at the end of August/beginning of September. In 2015, white grapes were harvested a week earlier than in the previous year, in roughly the first week of September. Flavourful golden Semillon grapes were picked on around 10 th September. Harvest: Red wines Harvest for Merlot began in mid-Septemver in areas where the grapes ripened early (approximately 21 st September) and ended with Cabernet grapes. The first analysis of the grapes was very encouraging, and the anthocyanins suggest a high-quality vintage. 2015 vintage: Wine tasting in London on Wednesday 23rd March 2016 Business France and the Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux are delighted to present nearly 50 crus at an en primeur press and trade event taking place in central London on Wednesday 23 rd March 2016. A s well as the 2015 vintage, other vintages will also be available to taste. The Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux represents top châteaux from the right and left banks. Producers will unveil a range which clearly shows that there are superb, top‑of‑the‑range and well-priced wines in Bordeaux. For more information on this event, visit:  www.grandcercletasting.uk

Fund & Grow: Business Development in the United Kingdom (Health / Masterclass Paris)

Start date  :  15-mars-2016
End date  :  15-mars-2016
Business France, 77 boulevard Saint-Jacques - 75014 Paris
 
The spotlight is on our next-door neighbour London, the helpful hub for health company funding! When thinking about international sources of funding (whether R&D or capital injection), the USA is often what first comes to mind for French and European companies. But did you know that only a mere 2h15 train ride away from Paris / 1h35 flight from Lyon is one of the most dynamic cities in the world for company funding? We’re talking about London, of course, considered by many investors as a  central hub for company funding in Europe , thanks to its enabling business environment. London is full of national and international stakeholders constantly on the lookout for new investments. From business angels to large laboratory corporate ventures and leading investment funds, any project is capable of finding sources of funding. Still relatively unknown in France, business angels provide the invaluable opportunity for any company offering a marketable service and looking for active investors to help them develop their business, to get their foot in the door of the UK market. Although extremely competitive, the UK market offers valuable business opportunities to any innovative company that is ready to invest. Here are some figures: - In 2014, British business angels invested £1.6m in the UK. - 29% of investments made by business angels were in the health and medtech sectors. - 40% of business angels investing in health and medtech between 2012 and 2015 expect a return on investment of between 1-5x, 20% expect a return of between 6-10x, and 10% expect a return of 10x and above. On  15 March 2016 , British and French experts in business development and finance will lead a  special seminar at the Business France head office in  Paris and   answer questions from French companies wishing to know more about the potential benefits that the UK could bring to their businesses. Please contact Pierre Goffaux, Trade Adviser at Business France UK , for further information on this this event and on potential sources of funding in the UK.

30th edition of the SIVAL trade show paves the way for the future of plant production

Start date  :  12-janv.-2016
End date  :  14-janv.-2016
Angers Expo Congrès, Route de Paris - 49044 Angers Cedex 1, France
 
SIVAL is the only trade show in France to present a comprehensive range of equipment and services for all types of specialist plant production: viticulture, oenology, horticulture, arboriculture, vegetable farming, seeds, medicinal and aromatic plants and cider. The 30th edition of SIVAL will showcase the production techniques that will drive tomorrow’s agriculture: new farming practices, varietal innovations, urban agriculture and digital agriculture. The 21,000 visitors expected at SIVAL will have an opportunity to discover the latest trends at two key events: the Vegepolys International Business Event (VIBE) for trade professionals and the international Vegepolys Symposium, which will address the future of different fruit varieties. SIVAL will take place from Tuesday 12th to Thursday 14th January 2016 at the Angers Exhibition Centre in France. Every year for the last 30 years, SIVAL has evolved to the next level, to offer visitors a glimpse of the latest plant production techniques. Founded to raise the profile of the sector as a whole, this trade show enables all those involved in the plant world to meet and interact. The 30th edition of SIVAL will go further still by placing a spotlight on the changes that will shape the future of agriculture, from connected agriculture, to the varieties of tomorrow and urban agriculture. It will feature a record number of exhibitors: 600 exhibitors (including 12% from abroad) will attend this three-day trade show. Tuesday 12 January 2016 marks the international day at SIVAL where two key events will be taking place: the Vegepolys International Business Event (VIBE) for trade professionals and the international Vegepolys Symposium, which will address the future of different fruit varieties. The Vegepolys International Business Event (VIBE) was created by the Vegepolys plant innovation cluster, in conjunction with SIVAL and development agencies in the Pays de la Loire region. The event is open to foreign companies wishing to build commercial and scientific partnerships with French firms. Overseas companies will also be able to learn more about the region itself – which leads the way in plant production – with a view to developing their activities in the area (partnerships or new operations). For more information and details on registering for the event, visit the VIBE website . Following a focus on water management in 2013, the protection of orchards in 2014 and biocontrol in 2015, the future of fruit varieties will take centre stage at the 2016 international Vegepolys Symposium, with scientific contributions and discussions on tomorrow’s varieties. Fruit growing is a highly competitive global economic sector that faces significant social challenges (organoleptic properties of food and support for healthy eating) and environmental constraints (production sustainability and climate change). Varietal innovation is the highest-level solution to the competitive challenges facing global arboriculture. SIVAL plays a central role in Plants Week, which is held during the third week of January each year and features a whole series of events dedicated to plants, combining knowledge sharing, collaboration and business, with an overarching emphasis on innovation and the future. These events complement one another, fostering synergies and making for an array of gatherings that is unrivalled in France. About SIVAL With nearly 600 exhibitors and 20,000 professional visitors annually, SIVAL is the only trade show in France to present a comprehensive and impressive offering of equipment and services for all types of plant production. Under the presidency of Bruno Dupont, President of the National Federation of Fruit Producers, the Organising Committee of SIVAL is made up of Vegepolys, technical agencies and speciality crop professionals. SIVAL is one of the highlights for Vegepolys and the region, and the only event in which the entire cluster comes together to discuss their production problems. Organised by Angers Expo Congrès, a mixed economy company serving the local economy, SIVAL promotes the development of the plant sectors. Download the SIVAL 2016 brochure  here .
