Burgeoning Beijing — InfoComm China Show Shatters Records

Burgeoning Beijing — InfoComm China Show Shatters Records

Is 2012 the Year of the AV Trade Show? At the close of day two of InfoComm China 2012, attendance hovered close to 15,000 (14,868), representing a 39 percent increase over its previous showing in 2011. Final attendance at close of the 3-day exhibition is expected to exceed 16,000, a record turnout. Record attendance is also driving interest in industry education. The 30 sessions of the InfoComm China Summit education program attracted a record attendance of 1,550 delegates, more than double that of last year. Exhibitors are so thrilled with the 38 percent increase in visitor attendance over last year, that InfoComm China is expanding in 2013 with two additional halls.

Elated exhibitors are responding by signing up for larger booths for the 2013 event in order to accommodate the crowds that converged on the 22,000 sq metres (237,000 sq ft) of Halls 1 to 4 this year. The 2013 show will expand to Halls 5 and 6 next year to cater to the additional demand for space. Demand is coming not just from existing exhibitors, but from other manufacturers that have visited the show and indicated their intent to join next year’s event.

InfoComm China 2013 will take place from 10-12 April at the China National Convention Centre in Beijing.

We hope to see you there!

InfoComm China 2012 Opens in Beijing

InfoComm China 2012 Opens in Beijing

Dear AV friends,

The weather is sunny, the mood is exciting and Beijing is a wonderful city to host China’s most spectacular AV trade show, InfoComm China 2012. The Beijing exhibition center is located right next to the Beijing National Stadium which was used in the Olympic Games 2008 aka Birds Nest.

I’m certainly impressed with the scale and size of the exhibitors stands which are beautifully adorned with the latest display, audio and network dazzlers. Right from the day’s opening ceremony, the stands were packed so tight with technology that attendees will need to walk around with their explorer’s hats on. We have been greeted with smiles, kindness and a willingness to assist with any technology inquiry. The organizers have got all things right when it comes to the exhibition center, managing the flow of the traffic, introducing visitor incentives such as the iPhone 4S prize draw initiative and there is even a good coffee shop nearby!
