Events diary service launches

A unique monthly events alert service that focuses on technology and academic events has been launched by the London-based technology research firm Gibson Index.
The aim behind the diary is to ensure that companies, local authorities, economic development agencies, national government departments, NHS organisations and other public bodies don’t miss out on the most important business events, especially those focusing on innovation, technology and enterprise.
For an annual subscription of only £68 plus VAT, subscribers will be sent a comprehensive summary of events per month, often with more than 120 events listed.
Via the website www.gb-calendar.com users can view a sample month – March 2007, one of the busiest months for technology and academic events. The calendar provides full details about each event, including date and venue, organiser contact points and website, plus a brief summary of its more interesting aspects, enabling organisations like local authorities to maximise opportunities to meet small to medium-sized companies (SMEs).
In addition to profiling UK-based events, the calendar also lists many of the most important international business, technology and innovation events around the world – such as CeBIT in Hannover, Germany, each spring, 3GSM in Barcelona, BIO2008 in the US and aerospace events in India, Pakistan and east Asia.
Commenting on the service, serial entrepreneur Richard Farleigh, a member of the BBC's Dragon's Den programme panel, said: “The events diary is invaluable in planning my forward business schedule.”

The calendar has been compiled by researchers at Gibson Index, London-based specialists in British technology SMEs, spinouts and emerging businesses. The new events service supplements the company’s ground-breaking activities in building a national SME database – the Gibson Index – which now contains 23,600 companies, and a popular monthly eNewsletter, ‘GiN’, which often stretches to 30 pages of A4 each month.
The Gibson Index was founded in 2003 by Marcus Gibson, a former Financial Times technology correspondent, who is one of the UK’s leading experts in small technology companies. Gibson, who started the diary for purely internal purposes because he was frequently missing out on important events, said: “We know how difficult it is to keep tabs on all of the many new business and technology events going on in the UK and around the world.

“Many national and international business trade fairs and conferences have become must-attend events for young SMEs, especially those that seek to be high growth, export-led and technology-driven,” he added. “In addition, event planners in local authorities and government departments can always check with us to see if there is a similar event planned on a date close to the one they may initially have pencilled in.”
