21 percent increase in visitor attendance, matched by more energetic engagement on the exhibition floor and seminar rooms, fortify InfoComm India as an effective platform for supporting India’s Digital Transformation
Mumbai, Sept. 26, 2018 – The sixth edition of InfoComm India, which ran from Sept. 18-20, 2018, closed on a high note, breaking new records for show visitor participation as well as new ground in scale and depth of innovations displayed and topics discussed.
ON THE SHOW FLOOR
Continuing the upward trend since the first edition in 2013, the number of unique visitors came close to hitting the 10,000 mark, with 9,902 exploring the exhibition halls, representing a hefty 21 percent increase over 2017. More than 200 exhibiting companies from over 20 countries were on hand to unveil and display the latest professional audiovisual (pro-AV) innovations and solutions.
Increasingly, more exhibitors are capitalizing on the visibility and wide media exposure of the InfoComm India to launch new technologies and solutions. This year, 84 new innovations made their debut in the Indian market via the show. One of the favorite displays among visitors was undoubtedly the world’s first commercially-available DLP® laser 8K projector and videowall with the smallest pixel pitch at 0.7mm.
AT THE LEARNING SESSIONS
The educational component of the show, the InfoComm India Summit, registered 2,970 participants. The expansive program offered sessions across AVIXA Seminars, Industry and Technology Forums, FlashTracks and Platinum Partners’ Presentations, supported by industry associations. Leading experts and speakers engaged attendees with insightful presentations and passionate exchange of ideas. Issues on smart cities, urban transportation, education, e-government and healthcare, among others, were extensively explored. The sessions highlighted the complexity and diversity of the impact of digital technology on people and business, and the defining role that pro-AV technologies play in facilitating the digital revolution.
Giving InfoComm India the edge as the premier show in pro-AV and integrated experience solutions is partnerships with complementary trade and industry associations. This year, InfoComm India partnered with All India Institute of Local Self Government, Computer Society of India (Mumbai Chapter), Digital Signage Multimedia Alliance, ICT Academy, and Institute of Indian Interior Designers (Mumbai Regional Chapter). These associations brought to the show the latest in technologies that drive their industries. The exchange of ideas at the Summit greatly enriched the experiences of attendees
“We are delighted to note that InfoComm India continued to grow in participation numbers, breadth and depth of innovations and technological solutions displayed and explored,” said Richard Tan, Executive Director of InfoCommAsia, the organizer of this show. We are even more gratified to note that an increasing number of key industry and public sector leaders have recognized that InfoComm India is contributing to India’s road to the digital revolution. We are confident that with the continued support of industry and government, the show will grow in tandem with India’s progress.”
“I have been coming to InfoComm India for many years, and the show is even more thrilling this time, getting more active and dynamic with an even denser participation,” said Amardeep Behl, Director of Design Habit. “To me as an Indian practitioner, India needs more exposure, and I am glad that InfoComm is doing that in a correct way. The more exposure we give India, the better. We are the masters; we just need to harness technology and understand how to deliver technology with quality. This platform is a great step towards that.”
“We have been frequent visitors to InfoComm India, and this time I have found some outstanding products that have great relevance to the immersive experiences that we do,” said Vamshi Krishna, Regional Business Head of Brightstar. “The whole place has a festive atmosphere, and it is always a pleasure to visit the show.”
“It was a fantastic show. There were many local and international players this time representing the industry,” said S V Phani Kumar, SPM Enterprise Communications. “We got an opportunity to see many new visitors and innovative technologies. The exhibitors made very good presentations of their products with a business focus, and we were able to build many new contacts.”
InfoComm India will return next year from Sept. 18-20, 2019 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai.
