Those present played with toy windup spaceships while they vied for a chance to win an iPod nano.
"We're exploring the universe of electronic communications -- as only we can do -- with the rollout of our global Web site Photonics.com," said Tom Laurin, executive vice president of Laurin Publishing. "It's content-rich, easily navigated, timely and, like the scifi literature of decades ago, a little dreamy and very powerful."
The iPod winner was Jean Dubé, vice president of sales/Asia-Pacific Europe for CorActive High-Tech Inc. of Quebec.
