Parcel2Go Highlights The Importance Of Offering A Variety Of Shipping Options On eBay

One of the UK’s leading online parcel delivery services has stressed how important it is for UK businesses to make sure they are appealing to as wide a group of online consumers on eBay as possible.

Bolton-based Parcel2Go made the call following an interview given to the Daily Telegraph by the online auction and retail giant’s president of global marketplaces this week. Devin Wenig told the newspaper the UK had now become eBay’s fastest-growing marketplace, highlighting the fact that the British site receives visits from 17 million unique users every month, with sellers listing 40 million products.

Parcel2Go marketing director Richard Mercer said the news highlights just how important it is for businesses using eBay to ensure that they are doing everything possible to attract customers.

He said: “The popularity of eBay is something that all businesses should be looking to take advantage of. E-commerce is continuing to grow at a staggering pace and companies should be trying to maximise their exposure to potential customers.

“On eBay, one way of doing this is by offering a wide range of shipping options to customers as this will ensure that listings appeal to as wide a range of people as possible. For example, by offering international shipping options through international courier firms you are going to suddenly make your products available to a whole swathe of new customers.”

In his interview, Mr Wenig also highlighted the increasing role that mobile is playing, describing its growth as “exponential”. He said one item per second is now purchased through a mobile device.

“Smartphone usage is spreading rapidly and as more consumers get access to sites such as eBay while they’re on the move, sales will naturally increase. We want as many businesses as possible to benefit from this opportunity,” added Richard.



NanoMarkets Announces the Release of Latest Report on Smart Windows Market

NanoMarkets has announced the release of its latest report on smart windows, “Smart Windows Markets 2012.”

Glen Allen, Virginia – February 29, 2012 — Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has announced the release of its latest report on smart windows, “Smart Windows Markets 2012.” In the report the firm analyzes the opportunities for smart windows including hot new technologies such as thermochromics, photochromics, PDLC and SPD. It also covers the established markets for retrofit window films and low-e glass.

The report also discusses the activities of some of the important firms in the smart windows space including: 3M, Asahi Glass, Beijing All Brilliant, Chiefway, Chromogenics, Citala, Commonwealth,Corning, DuPont, Garware, GE, Gentex, GlasNovations, Guardian Industries, Johnson Laminations, Materion, Mitsubishi, NSG/Pilkington, Pleotint, Polytron, Polytronix, PPG, Ravenbrick, Sage, Saint-Gobain, Schott, Sekisui, SKC Haas, Smart Glass, Soladigm, Solutia (Eastman Chemicals), Toray Plastics, Switch Materials, US e-Chromics and Zeledyne.

The report provides forecasts of all of the smart windows technologies and materials mentioned above for both the architectural and transportation sectors of the smart windows market, with breakouts by both market value and area covered, as well as by glass or film substrates.

Additional details about the report are available at:

NanoMarkets has recently released related other related reports in the areas of BIPV glass, flexible glass, transparent conductors and conductive coatings.

From the Report:

NanoMarkets strongly believes that smart window technologies will grow significantly in the coming decade on the basis of their ability to improve energy efficiencies within both the architectural and transportation sectors. Beyond energy conservation, smart windows also offer improved aesthetics, functionality and margins for builders, manufacturers and materials suppliers.

Materials and specialty chemical firms are a key constituency of the smart window supply chain and the smart window market will be largely fueled by innovation in specialty chemicals and materials science. The major growth areas are electrochromic coatings and self-cleaning coatings with thermochromic coatings will provide somewhat moderate growth opportunities for material suppliers. The market for electrochromic glass windows in particular is expected to almost quadruple to over $2.1 billion market by 2017, with the new smart technologies, PDLC and SPD, generating almost $800 million by the same year.

Smart windows will further provide a growth platform for architectural glass manufacturers and window manufacturers. Already “pricey” architectural glass and window products can be sold at incremental price increase, while providing valuable additional features such as energy savings with smart coatings on the windows and glass facades.

For the construction and architectural side of things, NanoMarkets believes that firms who focus on LEED design and construction, and who adopt smart windows technologies, will benefit the most. As smart windows technology grows and pervades the marketplace, it will eventually become a “required technology” for LEED design and construction. Therefore, architectural and construction firms that are early adopters of smart windows technology in their building designs will gain a sustainable competitive advantage for growing their businesses.

About NanoMarkets:

NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging market opportunities in energy, electronics and other markets created by developments in advanced materials. The firm is a recognized leader in industry analysis and forecasts of advanced glass and smart windows sectors and has been covering the markets for such technologies sector for more than six years.

Luxury Travel Ltd is Promoting “Discover the Charm of Myanmar in luxury and style in just 12 days” for Discerning travelers

Luxury Travel Ltd is an Asian luxury travel specialist specializing in privately guided and fully bespoke holidays for clients who are looking for something special in Indochina, Thailand and Myanmar.

Hanoi, Vietnam, February 28, 2012 – This tour allows you to discover the depth of Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, Inle Lake and on the Ayeyarwady River all the way to Bagan, disembarking at temples and viewing life along the river. Luxury Travel Ltd ( is an Asian luxury travel specialist specializing in privately guided and fully bespoke holidays for clients who are looking for something special in Indochina, Thailand and Myanmar.

“Myanmar’s appeal to luxury travelers lies in the way it has been unaffected by modern developments. The country attracts an increasing number of high-end visitors with its colonial properties such as the Orient Express’ Governor’s Residence in Yangon and growing number of boutique hotels across the country. The deeply Buddhist “Land of the Golden Pagodas” resonates with a strong sense of place, undiluted by mass tourism and warmed by genuine hospitality. You will find atmospheric hotels and a network of well-maintained regional jets serving the main sites. Ask luxury travel advisor team for visa and keep in mind that the Burmese economy remains largely cash-based.” said Pham Ha, Founder and CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd.

This is a land where holy men clad in traditional longyi are revered, thousands of ancient, religious stupas rise out of flat plains and floating-village life ebbs and flows upon Inle Lake. For a glimpse of old Indochina, there isn’t a more eye-opening destination than this mysterious country, which only began allowing Western travelers across its borders in recent years.

Yangon, the country’s capital, is an intriguing mix of British, Burmese, Chinese and Indian influences, which is evident through its colonial architecture to its unique cuisine. In this deeply Buddhist country, pagodas are scattered across the land, and some of the most impressive ones can be found in Yangon, including the Shwedagon Pagoda and the Sule Pagoda.

In Mandalay, Myanmar’s major commercial center, you can explore sites such as the monastery-studded Mandalay Hill, a pilgrimage site for Buddhists for nearly two centuries. Perhaps the best way to experience both the romance of the colonial era and see the Burmese people’s day-to-day realities is by cruising on the Ayeyarwady River all the way to Bagan, disembarking at temples and viewing life along the river.

If Yangon and Mandalay are Myanmar’s capitals of culture and commerce, then Bagan is the country’s spiritual center. Over 2,000 pagodas, stupas and temples dot the golden plains of Bagan. This is a once in a lifetime sight to behold, and is best seen from above in a private hot air balloon, which can be arranged by Luxury Myanmar Travel. Other highlights include the Ananda Temple (the best preserved in the city) and Mount Popa, a stunning volcano that serves as an ancient Buddhist pilgrimage site.

“Our luxury Myanmar tour introduces Myanmar from an insider’s perspective. This itinerary includes an expert Burmese guide accompanying you throughout your tour, providing an unrivalled level of service and insight, and the opportunity to meet local families, tour villages, and visit lesser-known temples and attractions while you discover the charm of this mystic land in style” Ha added

Opened in 2004, Luxury Travel Company Limited ( ) is the first luxury tour operator and DMC in Vietnam, has its own offices, luxury vehicles, luxury travel advisors, and serves thousands of high-end travelers every year. The company’s depth of experience and large infrastructure enable it to create unique itineraries with the operational confidence to fulfill client expectations. Luxury Travel Ltd has won numerous travel awards for excellent performance, including the most recent award: “Best Luxury Tour Operator in Vietnam.” Luxury Travel will attend ITB Berlin 2012 at Hall 26A/122
