Then I went to Switzerland stand to take Swiss chocolate. Swiss chocolate is famous. Right of this stand ther eis the stand of our country Austria. I take a cd with latest Austrian music to know what's going on and chocolate. I am not interested in talks, I don't travel to Cannes to talk to people I could talk to in Vienna.

And then I found the stand of EVDOKIMOV theatre, a theatre from Moskow with various parody shows. So colourful, so emotional. They have theme shows like "Halloween", "Cabaret", "Fairy Tales" or "Disco" and parody shows where they bring a lot of celebreties on stage, from Egyptian godess to "Lady Gaga". I spoke with director Denis Boldyrev. Actually they are on tour in Europe heading to Geneve / Switzerland. Oh, Russian women are so mmmmh. Try it and you know what I mean.

And again I met Joey Welz, writer of Bill Haley's "Rock Around The Clock". We were talking about his past times and with a smile he said, he is a dinosaur. I asked him, T.Rex or raptor? He is over 70, but still working as radio promoter for his company located in Canada.
Perry Scott talked about visual commerce and the importance of pictures. He mentioned Flickr, Instagram and other platforms. I asked him about his opinion of Google's Picasa. He did not know this platform in connection with social media and music promotion and asked me about it. In my opinion it is a nice platform for families to upload photos for grandma, but not applicable for bands and music promotion.

Lugger Victor presented his company MyMajorCompany, a France based crowdfunding platform. I asked him about the integration of languages in their website. Actually there are two languages available, french and english. Specially in Europe that is a big challenge, there are - different to USA - many different languages.
