Nihao from InfoComm China 2011!

Nihao from InfoComm China 2011!

InfoComm China 2011 opened its doors to more than 10,500 attendees in Beijing this week. The show floor had quite a buzz!  The show was the biggest InfoComm event ever staged in Asia, and visitor attendance was also at its highest ever. An increase of 16% over the last show in 2009 and the highest number ever achieved at an InfoComm show in China.  More importantly, exhibitors were happy with the high quality of these visitors.  The InfoComm China Summit, which encompasses InfoComm Academy® Seminars, Manufacturers’ Presentations, Industry Conferences and Technical Site Visits, was attended by 797 delegates.

InfoComm China 2011 occupied three of the four halls available at the China National Convention Centre, and the organizer has announced that they will be taking all four halls when it returns to Beijing, April 11-13, 2012, in order to cater to demand for bigger booths from current exhibitors as well as bookings from new exhibitors, many of whom could not secure space at this 2011 event as the show was completely sold out.

Greetings from the city of brotherly love – and there is plenty of love for InfoComm today with more than 50 members in attendance at our fourth roundtable of the year.

Before the roundtable, my morning was spent walking what seemed like miles and miles of floor at the brand new Pennsylvania Convention Center and checking out a spot for the next InfoComm Lunch & Tour. Digital signage, integrated sound systems and a façade that lights up to feature, among other things, the American flag — this expansion is sure to wow with the latest cutting edge audiovisual trends. The space features InfoComm members throughout – AVI-SPL, Acentech, Chief and Biamp all have a hand in this new installation and will be a part of the panel discussion at the Lunch & Tour this July. InfoComm is out and about in more ways than one and I encourage each of you to attend an InfoComm event in your neighborhood soon!
