"Corona became an accelerator for technical innovation in the distribution -, education- and even in the consumer/household sectors. The evolutionary traditional 25-years frog-leaping steps in the innovation cycles of the last two centuries are speeding up to revolutionary disruptions beaming everybody in future life-style-cycles expected to happen only in the period 2025-2050. Within each country but also internationally the competition will result in Darwinism: in winners and loosers of our present challenges" Prof.Hallier stated announcing the Conference.

15.08.2020 : Cologne Faces
In daily life permanently we are physically confronted with faces - also in social media we look for "faces" which are known to us - and the success of "facebook" is obvious a proof of this thesis. "Faces" are profiles - and agglomerations of faces can stand for example for friendship-groups, parties or CITIES .
The medical doctor and artist Dr. Sascha Lehmann (SAXA) from Cologne/Germany developped his personal style "to look
behind the faces" . He interviewed for a public exhibition 12 personalities of the City of Cologne each for an hour about their life-experiences ; those recorded words became the tool-box for the artist : by giving the characters of the words each a special strength/shadow he created portraits in the size of 1 meter x 1 meter as in the case of Prof.Dr.B.Hallier . Both are also together with the Fluxus-Artist Mary Bauermeister partners in the KTG-Foundation for Art and Art Therapy (see).
15.07.2020 : Electronic City Marketing
Already in 1999 Prof.Dr.Hallier created an EHI-Workshop for Electronic City Marketing in Germany. In three steps within two years a concept was discussed with experts from the city marketing associations , IT-experts and retailers; a framework for a research-project defined and a pitch for communication agencies organized ( see pic : retail technology
4/01, p. 28/29 ) . A test should have been run in five cities ranging from small to medium and big cities.
"Unfortunately the financial support for the 3 million Euro by potential sponsors failed at that time : peanuts seen in the review of more than 20 years. All actors of city marketing would have gained a lot of know-how which in 2020 is urgently needed due to the Covid 19 disruption." Prof.Hallier claimed in welcome greetings for international guests of the 25th CORP Conference in the city of Aachen . ( more about the Conference at corp)
