Beijing InfoComm China 2020 seems to have concluded on a positive note. I am told by several Chinese acquaintances that the three-day show was marked by a lively and buoyant atmosphere that is familiar to exhibitors and visitors who had participated in previous years.
I was also told that this year’s Show was particularly timely, featuring products and solutions that included #AI, #IoT, robotics and other smart technologies
For exhibitors, Beijing InfoComm China 2020 was a welcome platform to connect with customers face-to-face after months of distance working and remote communications. The Show enabled the resumption of business dealings and transactions, making up for the lost time and opportunities caused by the pandemic-induced disruptions. Ideas and opportunities abound as the 30,866 visitors explored new solutions that will enable their businesses to navigate the changing challenges in the new normal.
- Li Langping, Manager, Intelligent Collaborative Marketing of Huawei said “We are satisfied with the quantity and quality of buyers at the Show. I met potential customers and had fruitful discussions with them. Beijing InfoComm China has been very useful for us in developing and expanding our customer base”.
- Aaron Lu, Product Director at Tico said “The flow of visitors to the exhibition was beyond my expectation,” shared Before the Show, everyone generally believed that there should not be too many visitors on the first day. In fact, if you look around, there are visitors talking about business almost at every booth.”
- Lu Yang, Technical Director of FionTu Group said “The first day of the Show was good. I spent almost 70% of my time communicating with buyers at the booth. As an international show for Pro-AV and integrated experiential technology, Beijing InfoComm China attracts industry professionals. They all come to visit with their ideas and needs. Under the current situation, we can still reach new customers at the Show which makes us very satisfied”.
- Xue Lei, Senior Structural Engineer of Beijing Hangtian Kede Technology Co., Ltd. said “This is my first time visiting Beijing InfoComm China. I found some solutions that could be applied to my current projects, and am hoping these technologies can help develop my business. I also met some brands, suppliers and partners which are useful leads for further follow-up”.
- Holden Guo, Vice Secretary of SDVoE Alliance (China) said “The Summit at Beijing InfoComm China is a good platform for information exchange. It not only allows professionals from various industries to gather together, but also provides an opportunity for them to learn from one another. As an alliance that focuses on AV/IT convergence, we need a platform like Beijing InfoComm China’s Summit to promote our philosophy and the entire ecosystem involving audio, video and IT. I consider Beijing InfoComm China the best exhibition I have seen since the pandemic broke out this year”.
There were 450 exhibitors, including over 100 who were participating for the first time.
One new feature was the ‘AV Managers Day’ which attracted strong participation by practitioners and managers. Diverse experiences in project and operations management were shared, and many participants were able to take away valuable knowledge and information relevant to their professional work.
The 2021 edition of Beijing InfoComm China will be held on 21-23 July 2021 at the China National Convention Center in Beijing, China.
