The show has continued to grow from strength to strength as this year’s numbers show. Key performance metrics broke new records. The registered attendance at the exhibition is a new high of 40,866 local and overseas visitors – up from 38,809 in 2018. Participating at the exhibition were more than 400 exhibitors from China and around the world. Amongst them, 20% were first-time exhibitors, and 80% exhibitors returning from previous years. Solidifying its reputation as the go-to-market platform for Pro-AV and Integrated Experience innovations and solutions, over 100 products launched at the show were new-to-China and new-to-Asia.
In line with the improved quantitative indicators, qualitative outcomes were also encouraging. The vibes on the exhibition floor and in conference rooms were noticeably more vibrant and bustling. Onsite surveys indicated satisfaction by exhibitors who reported more and better-quality enquiries by higher-level professionals and by visitors for the diversity of latest AV innovations and solutions.
“I am extremely pleased that the show has grown for the 11th year, increasing in diversity of exhibitors, and drawing visitors who continue to find value in the solutions and business opportunities available,” said Richard Tan, Executive Director of InfoComm Asia.
“We will persist in building on our successes to innovate and curate new platforms and programmes as part of our strategy to anchor Beijing InfoComm China as the flagship event for the industry.”
In tandem with the vibrancy of the exhibition, the Summit also saw an increase in number of delegates, supported by key partnering industry associations. A total of 8,330 delegates attended more than 60 sessions over three days. The seminars and workshops generated intensive and robust discussions and exchanges on wide-ranging issues and challenges arising from the impact of disruptive technology on the future of business and industry. More than 70 speakers from industry and academia provided insights and in-depth exposition on a wide spectrum of topics, ranging from Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence, robotics and big data. Beijing InfoComm China was, once again, able to deliver a rich learning experience for all visitors and delegates.

What Visitors & Delegates Say
“This year is my fourth consecutive year visiting Beijing InfoComm China. We were here to see the latest products and meet suppliers. Until now, we have been communicating with them over the phone, so this was the first time we met up with them – at the show. Our business focuses mainly on smart campus. During the show, many exhibitors showcased their relevant products to us. It was a good opportunity to exchange ideas.”
Song Lai Yun, Project Manager, Lanxum
“I visit Beijing InfoComm China every year to meet old contacts, and exchange information on new products and technology trends. This year, I also attended the China Smart Hotel Technology Forum. It was a valuable experience to people in the hotel industry like myself. I learned much new knowledge and about many successful cases. I also met with some industry experts whom I intend to keep in touch with as future connection.”
