120th SPICE Meeting in St. Louis, USA at the annual **NBIA conference**

St. Louis, United States
3 – 4 May 2006

The 120th SPICE Meeting was the beginning of celebrations of the 15th SPICE Group Anniversiary with two main activities:
- Developing a review of business incubation and networking activities during the recent decade as well as outlining per-spectives how to meet future challenges.
- Creating the SPICE Art Ball 2006 to represent the countries in the network as well as invited guest countries in an artistic way as well as generating the basis for the "SPICE Fund"
Barbara Harley, Vice President of SPICE Group took initiative to guide the discussion process on the "Anniversary Questions". She has summarized answers provided so far and members by email will receive this summary for evaluation and further development of the overview. In the continued process further replies will be integrated and summarized to be dis-cussed at upcoming SPICE meetings. Finally the result of this process will be published in an appropriate form.
The "SPICE Art Ball 2006" was kicked off at this meeting and participants form nine countries (Armenia, China, Germany, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, and Sweden) cretated their "national trinagles" for this art ball.
