We have met already!

2006 -19th IMA GM, Kobe, Japan
2008 - 33rd IGC, Oslo, Norway
2009 - 14th ICC, Castellaneta Marina, Italy
2009 - 19th Goldschmidt Conference, Davos, Switzerland

Throughout the years of preparation, the IMA2010 meeting has been advertised with conference booth at a number of places, including the 19th IMA General Meeting (23-28 July; 2006, Kobe, Japan), the Frontiers in Mineral Sciences Meeting (26-28 June, 2007; Cambridge, United Kingdom), the 33rd InternationalGeological Congress (6-14 August, 2008; Oslo, Norway), the 14th International ClayConference and the 19th Annual V. M. Goldschmidt Conference (21-26 June, 2009; Davos, Switzerland).
We tried to draw your attention to the beauty, historic, scientific and culinary values of the organising Mid-European Region. From the quiz available at the booth you could learn interesting and useful bits of information about the region and the conference itself, like:

  • 10 Mid-European countries contribute to the organisation of the IMA2010 meeting
  • the capital of Hungary, the host city of the conference, is Budapest
  • the river of Budapest, connecting four capitals of the organising countries (namely: Vienna - Austria, Bratislava - Slovakia, Budapest - Hungary, Belgrade - Serbia), is the Danube (also commemorated in the famous waltz „ The Beautiful Blue Danube" of Johann Strauss Jr.)
  • the currency of Hungary is forint
  • 60 mineral species have their type locality in the Carpathian region, the heart of Middle Europe, which is completely covered by the 30 field trips related to the conference

So really, IMA2010 is a meeting you should not miss this August! Those who managed to find the correct answers and were lucky enough, won among others valuable books, bottles of the famous Hungarian dessert wine („Tokaji aszu"), the bitter herb liqueur Unicum or Zwack fruit spirits, pieces of traditional folk art (embroidery). The luckiest ones even won a free registration (Ana Neiva, 2009 Goldschmidt Meeting, Davos) or a free field trip (Alain Manceau, 2009 Goldschmidt Meeting, Davos).

Traditional embroidery and red wine from Southern Hungary - prizes and the lucky winners at the 2009 Goldschmidt meeting, Davos. Traditional embroidery and red wine from Southern Hungary - prizes and the lucky winners at the 2009 Goldschmidt meeting, Davos.

Those who just simply came to the booth for brochures, circulars, additional information or preregistration, were seduced among others by Austria's most renowned chocolate delicacy, the „Mozartkugel".
We sincerely hope that you have as nice memories of these „preparatory encounters" as we do, and that by now, you all decided to meet us again, this August, at the IMA2010 meeting in Budapest. To refresh your memories, we compiled a selection of photos of these former encounters in this gallery, including booth scenes, quiz draws, and lucky winners with the prize they won. Feel free to browse and find yourself there!

See you soon again in Budapest!
