InfoComm China 2017 is set to be the biggest pro-AV and ICT showcase in the Asia Pacific yet. With nine halls covering 55,000 sqm of the China National Convention Centre, over 300 local and overseas exhibitors will participate in this event.

This year’s showcase will welcome over 52 new exhibitors from eight countries and regions, such as China, the USA, Japan, the UK, Germany, Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong. InfoCommAsia Executive Director Richard Tan says: “The pro‐AV market is evolving rapidly in tandem with the broader technology landscape, and visitors to InfoComm China can benefit from new and deeper understanding of the use of cutting‐edge technologies and applications for digital transformation in the business, industry and community domains.”
