The 8th Annual Northern Innovation Fair and 1st Annual GMS Innovation Forum was held at Central Airport Plaza FROM August 9-13, 2012 and featured the innovative products of companies, educational institutes and manufacturers from the North, Cambodia and Laos. The event, sponsored by the Federation of Thai Industries Northern Branch, saw Deputy Governor Chuchart Keelapaeng open the event after a short film about the innovative research and products that were at the show.

Unfortunately there was no test model of the Cambodian electric car at the Fair.

Included in that were local Chiang Mai business Urban Farm which offers innovative uses of Thai spices in foods, as well as a pineapple flavored drinking vinegar from Chiang Rai, an electric car from Cambodia that sells for as low as US $5000 or a little under 160,000 Baht. Also featured were Chiang Mai University’s own ThEP center, or Thailand Center of Excellence in Physics as well as a researcher from the TheP Center in Nakhom Pathom’s Rajabhat University which featured color change jewelry, stones that change color depending on the light. The display featured treated glass but at the Center they have treated gemstones for color change.

Additionally, there were local organic products including products developed by a CMU Professor and sold on CMU campus at Grace Herb, as well as foodstuffs, technology and household products.
