CommunicAsia And BroadcastAsia Return To Showcase World Leading Digital Convergence Experience


European attendance set to be highest ever in 2008

London, 18 March 2008 – CommunicAsia and BroadcastAsia - The most established and relevant trade event for the global infocomm and media industries - will once again be held in Singapore from 17 – 20 June 2008.

Reflecting the synergistic trend in the infocomm and digital media industries, CommunicAsia2008 and BroadcastAsia2008 is set to embrace the convergence of digital multimedia technology and the entertainment value chain as never before. Consequently more companies are now making the trip to Singapore from European bases – for example the German pavilion is set to hold a record number of companies and there are also strong attendance numbers already confirmed from Scandinavian nations.

Visitors to CommunicAsia will not only get to see leading-edge enabling technologies and business solutions designed to enhance enterprises’ mobility and users’ lifestyle, but they will also get to meet with representatives from telcos and mobile operators, ISPs, enterprises, system integrators, broadcasters, post/production studios, animation houses, computer graphics producers, as well as content owners and developers.

“We are very excited to be able to bring CommunicAsia and BroadcastAsia to the industry once again,” said Rupert Owen, UK Based Director at Overseas Exhibition Services (OES).   “It is very heartening to know that exhibitors, visitors and delegates alike find the shows relevant and are able to gain valuable in-roads to multiple markets. Participants have also given us feedback that the event is an ideal launch pad for introducing products and solutions to the regional media.”

A truly international event, CommunicAsia and BroadcastAsia attracted a total of more than 68,000 attendees last year, 50% of whom were from overseas.  The visitors were treated to a wide spectrum of ICT and media innovations, put on display by over 2,400 exhibiting companies from 65 countries.

Already, more than 80% of the exhibition space has been snapped up this year.  More leading companies showcasing technologies ranging from 3G, LTE, WiMAX, Broadband, FMC, FTTH, NGN, IP Technology, IPTV, Mobile Entertainment, Satellite and Security are expected to register for CommunicAsia2008 as June draws closer.

Several high profile industry thought leaders and business luminaries are also set to be announced over the coming months, who will be involved in discussions on ‘hot’ topics and issues. They are expected to once again serve as vibrant platforms where sellers and buyers congregate, network, and exchange industry best practices.
BroadcastAsia2008 will feature some of the hottest technologies in the market, including Broadcasting-to-Handheld, Digital Media Asset Management, Immersive Tech, HD Technology, IPTV, Mobile Entertainment and Professional Audio Technology.
