Ho Ho… but who? Fairmont The Palm, the five star luxury family resort on Palm Jumeirah has a global mission at hands, to find the best resident Santa for its fast approaching festive season.

Required for all typical Santa roles and responsibilities, Fairmont The Palm is looking for the crème de la crème of Santas, one that goes above and beyond the usual Christmas cheer. The resort has made a list, that they will be checking twice, of the ideal traits and key skills required for the role in the form of a job description that all applicants must adhere to. Key skillsets include: having a jolly disposition, must be compatible with elves, must have a certain sized waistline, needs a minimum length for his white beard and of course, must ooze festive flair…

The resort is asking for global applicants who feel they fit the dedicated job description, to upload a 30 second video application tagging #MyDubaiSanta #FairmontThePalm to Instagram or Facebook by October 30 2017, stating why they would make the perfect Santa in their full Santa outfit. The winner will be selected shortly after.

The chosen Santa will win an all-inclusive trip to Dubai, staying at Fairmont The Palm for three weeks between 5th and 26th December, where in-between a few hours of Santa work per day, he and a guest of his choice will enjoy a memorable stay with a return flight from their home destination.

Could this be the best job in the world?

Furniture China to Create a Milestone with “Dizzying” New Changes in 2017

Following 10 months of preparation, the 23rd China International Furniture Expo (abbr. Furniture China 2017) and the 2nd Maison Shanghai, co-hosted by China National Furniture Association (CFNA) and Shanghai UBM Sinoexpo Int’l Exhibition Co., Ltd., will return on 12-15 September 2017 at Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) and Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center (SWEECC) in Pudong Shanghai, China.

During the four-day exhibition, the organizers are going to present nicely thousands of new furniture products from a total of 3,500 exhibitors in the two venues, covering nearly 350,000 square meters in exhibition areas. Together with more than 40 purposeful meetings and forums on-site, Furniture China and Maison Shanghai in the upcoming edition will greatly offer to lead its audience to experience the various possibilities of life aesthetics and styles.

Growing over two decades, Furniture China is entering into a new realm of pursuing quality excellence instead of expanding merely on the exhibition scale. By having strict quality control of participating exhibitors as well as continuous upgrades of hall layout and services, the organizers aim to provide an ideal trading platform for global industry buyers to source high-quality furniture products and to boost business opportunities through the exhibition.

Design of Designers and Home Furnishings Moved to SWEECC – The Whole Exhibition Areas Increased by Nearly 50,000 Square Meters

The layout adjustment is the biggest change to this year’s Furniture China. Product categories in W halls have been swapped to the opposite E halls, and thus contributing to the expansion of contemporary furniture, which covers entire 7 indoor pavilions from Hall E1-E7. In the meanwhile, more contemporary brands and companies will have a chance to exhibit at Furniture China this September. With the Design of Designers (DOD) and Home Furnishings moved out to the SWEECC, Furniture China leaves even more space for presentation of furniture finished products and raw materials. Hall E8A & E8B will instead be used for the FMC China and “Design Sofa, Fabric & Material”. In this way, the two exhibitions respectively in SNIEC and SWEECC are finely positioned, with Furniture China in SNIEC focusing on furniture trade and high-end upstream manufacturing in industrial chains, and Maison Shanghai in SWEECC concentrating on lifestyles with home decorations and furniture designs in particular.

The overall area for the two exhibitions goes up to 350,000 square meters in total this year, nearly 50,000 square meters increased due to expansion of exhibition areas for the contemporary furniture, the outdoor pavilions and Maison Shanghai.

Exhibitor Quality Further Improved for 2017

Adhering faithfully to its core guideline of “Export-oriented”, “High-end Domestic Sales”, “Original Design” and “Industry Leading”, Furniture China has been highly recognized as one of the premier trading exhibitions in the world. The furniture fair every September in Pudong has been able to become the first choice for domestic and international buyers every year with an ever-improving reputation over the years. In the upcoming edition, there will be more than 500 new exhibitors participating, such as A-Zenith, COOMO, CAMERICH, HALO Creative, TRECA and TK Home Deco. Design Hall is on show in particular, with 50% new brands making their debut at Furniture China, including Wow Design, Shiji, Matrix and Shenghua etc. In addition, highly acclaimed brands from last year such as U+ furniture, Qumei, EXPOCASA, Yang Liping Art Furniture and DOMO Life will also be returning. The International Brand Hall will house over 200 brands from 25 countries including FranceItaly, the US, the UK, South KoreaBelgiumMalaysia and North European countries, as well as Tonino Lamborghini which rarely participates in exhibitions in China.

Shopicks, the fastest growing digital shopping platform known for revolutionizing and streamlining the art of online and mobile shopping, has rebranded its web extension, site and mobile app as Thinkover. Launched in December 2015 and rapidly approaching one million users, the successful e-commerce shopping app will continue to allow users to easily find, save and view items from any online retailer and will now be offering users new interactive features such as the ability to invite friends and then share, comment on and ‘like’ each other’s items, as well as expanding into additional areas beyond traditional shopping behaviors.

Thinkover enables users to discover, collect, organize and manage online shopping on one easy-to-use platform, solving the largest e-commerce pain point for both consumers and retailers. Users can drag and drop any item into its proprietary “Thinkover Place” for easy reference, sharing, and to receive merchant alerts such as sale notifications.  Before Thinkover’s creation of this new space between buying and browsing, consumers suffered by having to save items on individual websites and risk losing or forgetting their coveted items. Additionally, Thinkover enables retailer’s products to remain at the forefront of their customer’s shopping behavior and thus facilitates more bottom-of-the-funnel transactions for merchants.

Thinkover features include:

  • Intuitive toolbar that pops up at the bottom of any webpage when shoppers want to use it
  • Ability for users to simply drag items found on any website into the toolbar
  • Personalized categories and collections for users to manage and compare all digital shopping in one location
  • Smarter shopping experience through instant sale notifications for all items in your “Thinkover Place”
  • Invite friends to follow and view your “Thinkover Place”
  • Easily share and receive items and collections from “Thinkover Place” with friends and family to rate, comment or give feedback on saved items
  • View and manage personalized list of retailers from mobile app using store thumbnail

Over the past six months, users of the platform have saved an average of one million new products per month from over thirty-two thousand stores globally and have proven to be extremely active and engaged in the shopping experience. As Thinkover, the platform will become an experiential, universal resource beyond the traditional retail industry and play a critical role in any type of decision making process where users need to think something over, as its name suggests.

“The overwhelming success of Shopicks has proven that there is high demand for this previously untapped space between browsing and buying,” explained Adriana Neumann, Chief Executive Officer at Thinkover. “With Thinkover, we intend to become the go-to destination for anyone who wants to bring order, structure and convenience to the world of online browsing and shopping within any category, regardless of what type of item or area of interest they may be seeking.”

The Thinkover browser extension is currently available for Google Chrome and Safari, with additional web browsers to be added soon. The Thinkover mobile app is currently available for iOS, with Android versions to also be available shortly.

About Thinkover
Thinkover has solved one of the primary frustrations that both consumers and e-commerce retailers face by creating a beautiful, intuitive and consistent location for mobile and web decision-making.  Users can drag and drop any item into Thinkover’s proprietary “Thinkover Place” for easy reference, for sharing, and to receive merchant alerts such as sale notifications.  Before Thinkover’s creation of this new space between buying and browsing, consumers had to save items on individual websites – where they were largely forgotten – or juggle dozens of links.  Consumers lost track of items they loved, and merchants lost their ability to connect with their best customers.  By allowing users to discover, collect, organize and manage their shopping, Thinkover solves the largest ecommerce pain point, and will facilitate more bottom-of-the-funnel transactions for merchants.

Holborn Assets, the international financial advice firm head quartered in Dubai, has announced today a brand new internship opportunity for six ambitious, driven students and graduates.

(Photo: http://mma.prnewswire.com/media/543513/Holborn_Assets_Mongol_Rally.jpg )

Successful candidates will work closely with senior figures in different departments at the company to build an array of skills in finance, management and communication. New interns will also have the choice to work in Holborn’s offices in Dubai, UAE, or Colombo, Sri Lanka or even split time between both offices as part of a dedicated, cross-cultural experience placement.

The generous package will include return flights, accommodation* and a monthly salary equating to £1,200 (subject to exchange rates). As a financial services firm, Holborn aims to provide candidates with ample opportunity to save a substantial sum at the very start of their careers.

Not limited to specific degree backgrounds, the organisation is actively seeking candidates studying a range of business subjects. Those studying or graduating in digital marketing, events management, customer service, operations, administration, finance and human resources are especially encouraged to apply to the firm.

As part of their internship, the six candidates will be offered the opportunity to involve themselves in a charitable endeavour either with one of the business’s existing community partnerships in MalawiSri Lanka or South Africa. However, the company encourages future employees to propose and present a social enterprise they are passionate about to its Community Support Committee for consideration. This initiative follows the success of last year’s interns who, after completing six months work each in Dubai and Colombo, successfully petitioned their cause to raise funds for environmental charity Cool Earth by taking part in the Mongol Rally**.

The Rally, taking place in July, requires participants to purchase a vehicle for less than £500 and to map a full route to drive a whopping 10,000+ miles across Europe and Asia. Ambitious adventurers will navigate their way through the mountains, deserts and wilderness of various countries including TajikistanKyrgyzstan and Mongolia before finishing in Siberia’s Ulan-Ude, close to Lake Baikal.

Commenting on the opportunity, Chief Operations Officer at Holborn Assets, Simon Parker, said: “We want to offer something unique to the brightest and most innovative students in the country. Not only does this include providing a great, international business experience, but also a highly competitive salary and accommodation at no additional cost to our new recruits. We’re looking to invest in future talent for the company, so those who deliver excellent performance during their internship are likely to receive a full-time employment as Holborn continues to expand worldwide.

“Having had great success with Charles Leahy and Adam Holland, our interns for the 2016 – 2017 academic year, the team here are excited to offer the same opportunity to triple the number of young people to learn, grow and develop with us both professionally and personally.

“Our programme of training will offer rich learnings in international business management across several locations with the aim of developing skills, experience and thorough financial support as part of, what we feel is, an opportunity of a lifetime.

“There are six placements up for grabs – and we very much look forward to meeting the new members of our team.”

To apply, prospective candidates should email a full CV, cover letter detailing why you should be considered and what you can bring to the company in addition to two references (including referee contact details) to interns@holbornassets.com by 23:59 BST on 1st October 2017.

To be considered, fluency in English (as a native speaker) is essential. Candidate must have a valid passport which permits entry to the United Arab Emirates and Sri Lanka. Applicants must be available for a minimum of six months with internships to be arranged for a maximum of 12 months. Holborn Assets can recruit current university students as part of sandwich courses.

*Shared accommodation offered with male and female candidates housed separately. All basic bills will be covered by the company.

**Further detail about the Mongol Rally challenge can be found on the Holborn Assets Facebook page here.

The increasing adoption of SDN and NFV technologies by telecom service providers has boosted the overall network capacity potential by delivering flexibility in bandwidth. SDN transforms the network to a more open and programmable framework by implementing a decoupled centralized control layer, which in turn, enables implementation of NFV that optimizes network resources. This in turn, reduces network congestions, enhances network user capacity (bandwidth requirement), and minimizes the cost associated with hardware requirement for network user expansions.

The manufacturing vertical is expected to show the fastest growth rate during the forecast period

In the current business scenario, the manufacturing vertical is completely IT-enabled and all the entities of a particular manufacturing unit are connected through a network. Manufacturing units across the world are rapidly adopting SDN solutions to better optimize their networks.

Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The APAC region is poised for strong growth in terms of SDN and NFV deployments over the network. The main reason behind this growth is the increasing number of data center deployments coming up in this region. Japan is said to be the biggest customer in this region, in terms of SDN and NFV revenues, but the maximum research about SDN and NFV technologies is being done in China and Korea. APAC is set to displace Europe from its second position in the SDN and NFV market in terms of revenue generation. Moreover, North America being one of the most technologically-advanced region, there are continuous advancements in technologies as well as business applications, and that is the driving growth for adoption of SDN and NFV in the region.

The SDN and NFV market report includes the competitive landscape, which presents the positioning of 26 key SDN and NFV vendors, based on their product offerings and business strategies. Some of the major SDN and NFV vendors are Nokia Corporation (Finland), Cisco Systems, Inc. (US), Ericsson AB (Sweden), Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. (China), Intel Corporation (US), International Business Machines Corporation (US), Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. (US), Juniper Networks (US), NEC Corporation (Japan), Pica8 (US), Brocade Communications Systems, Inc. (US), Ciena Corporation (US), Intel Corporation (US), Pluribus Networks (US), and Big Switch Networks, Inc. (US).

Warehouse o hold larger share of retail automation market based on implementation in coming years

The warehouse implementation held a larger share of the retail automation market than the in-store implementation in 2016. With the increase in the number of stock keeping units (SKUs), the size of the warehouse has increased considerably, making it difficult for warehouse workers to perform their tasks proficiently. The emergence of warehouse automation has enabled the companies to increase the efficiency of their warehouse operations. In the majority of warehouses, various processes such as picking, sorting, packing, storage, and retrieval are accomplished by employees. With the technological developments, the retailers are now adopting automated conveyors, robots, and automated storage and retrieval systems, involving only partial engagement of employees. Hence the large investments in the warehouse automation are expected to further help improve productivity and flexibility in processes.
