The two-day show was attended by 1,727 unique visitors.
The Summit, which was delivered alongside the exhibition, provided business end-users with insight on thelatest market trends and developments specific to key industries. A total of 162 live demo sessions, and 38 webinars led by 73 speakers, were hosted on the platform.
“Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, we have yet again seized this opportunity to bring together with the Pro-AV community in India and provided them with a platform to connect with both their channel partners and end-user customers in a way that best replicates the in-person show experience while keeping everybody safe,” says Richard Tan, Executive Director of InfoComm Asia. “With the continued support of our exhibitors, we hope InfoComm India has played its part in helping the industry brave this
