Our journey inside the Milan Expo pavilion continues: architecture and - obviously – vertical transportations. In this issue we take you on a trip to the pavilions (and installations) of France and the “Corporate pavilions”.
Italia Eleva. The event is the fruit of the strong will of ANICA and ANACAM: very welcomed “by critics and public”. Even EFESME took advantage of Italia Eleva to present the results of a year-long work, on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the European Federation representing the small and medium sized lift companies.
From Paris, we present the report on the ELA General Meeting: a high profile conference analysing the aspects of  “Lifts in the European energy scene”. The issue was debated by experts from different countries representing the EU Commission, universities and companies.
Ivor Ambrose, of ENAT, starts a cycle of papers derived from the study “The supply and performance check of accessible tourism services in Europe”, which was carried out for the European Commission’s Tourism Unit: accessible tourism services (including vertical transportation) are present in less than 10% of all tourism venues.
The column “Business & Finance” deals with the weakness of the Euro currency and the effects this has on our industry. The crisis has forced most companies (including many lift and lift component manufacturers) to export to markets outside the Eurozone and tackling issues related to the management of multi-currency environments.
The Techniques pages  are opened by a French team proposing the application of the RCT to lifts. The Rigid Chain Technology (in brief a telescopic electro-mechanical actuator) has existed for 40 years and has been applied in different industries such as manufacturing, nuclear and aerospace.
Jan König, of the VFA German association, proposes an analysis on the so-called PCR (Product Category Rules) and on the EPD (Environmental Product Declarations) for lifts.
Véronique Spreadbury highlights the new obligations in the area of traceability of lifts and safety components, deriving from the new 2014/33/EU Directive.
The IAEE officially launched the next Elevcon (Madrid, 10-12 May 2016). This means that from its side, Elevatori launches the 4th “High Tech Award”, for the best paper presented at the most important world congress on vertical transportation  technology. Speakers, you have been warned.
