BroadcastAsia2011 and CommunicAsia2011 Set To Top 2,000 Exhibitors
Previously held at the Singapore Expo, the events’ move to the downtown venues will enable visitors to cut down on travel time. More importantly, Suntec Singapore and the newly-opened Marina Bay Sands Singapore offer a greater number and variety of conference and hospitality facilities. This availability of facilities allows for the growth of the BroadcastAsia International Conference and CommunicAsia Summit, as well as associated forums and professionals workshops. As the sharing of industry knowledge and closed door meetings become an increasingly important component of international trade events, the availability of purpose built conference facilities became a decisive factor in the relocation of these iconic global events.
“We have received strong support from the vast majority of participating international companies on this move. The ability to host all their activities in the respective venues makes it easier for exhibitors to offer a mix of hospitality and educational events to their business partners,” said Mr. Rupert Owen, UK-based Director at Overseas Exhibition Services Ltd, the worldwide associate for the events.
Convergent Technologies Showcases Just Minutes Apart
Suntec Singapore and Marina Bay Sands are located, within a stone’s throw of each other, in the easily accessible Marina Bay area. Visitors interested in attending both BroadcastAsia and CommunicAsia may choose to use the shuttle service arranged by the show organisers or take a walk across the Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade and shopping malls.
For added convenience, trade visitors will only have to register once at either event. Those who have registered and obtained their entry badges at BroadcastAsia will be able to enter CommunicAsia, and vice versa, simply by displaying their badges.
Events Driven by Evolution and Implementation of New Technologies
The last edition of BroadcastAsia and CommunicAsia saw the participation of over 55,000 industry visitors, conference speakers and delegates, exhibiting staff and members of the media. International attendees made up more than half (56 per cent) of the total participation and arrived from over 100 countries and regions from all corners of the globe.
The exhibitions, which featured about 2,000 exhibitors in 2010, serve as strategic platforms for companies to launch their breakthrough innovations to Asia and the world. The congregation of business leaders, government officials and industry professionals also make the events the ideal setting for high level business networking and knowledge sharing.
BroadcastAsia and CommunicAsia are organised by Singapore Exhibition Services and hosted by the Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA) and the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA).
