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!
One comment noted from several companies was the increased local knowledge of the Chinese market, no doubt down to the education that industry professionals contribute. It reflects that the industry is booming and flourishing. I hear from InfoComm’s education team that they took record amounts of registrations. I can’t help but wonder if this show has the potential to take on the success, enjoyment and scale of Integrated Systems Europe.
I’m looking forward to the rest of the show and will keep you briefed on more education highlights. I hope to be able to speak to a few more local visitors over the next two days too. Don’t forget to view the pictures from day one.
We wish you were here. ;-) Till next time.
