The first edition took place in Palma de Mallorca (ESP), and since then nine editions took place, in Rio de Janeiro (BRA, 1995), Gothenburg (SWE, 1997), Hong Kong (HKG, 1999), Athens (GRE, 2000), Moscow (RUS, 2002), Indianapolis (USA, 2004), Shanghai (CHN, 2006), and Manchester (GBR, 2008). The 10th edition will be held in Dubai (UAE), from December 15-19, 2010, while the 11th edition is already scheduled for Istanbul (TUR), in December 2012.
