Apr 12, 2018

With a line-up of big-name exhibitors, the highly-anticipated inaugural edition of Chengdu InfoComm China 2018 is the ideal platform for AV professionals to enter the exciting Western China market

Beijing – 12 April 2018 --( ASIA TODAY )-- Capitalizing on rapid technological developments in Western China, the inaugural edition of Chengdu InfoComm China 2018 offers AV professionals the chance to extend their business into the economically dynamic region.

The show, a premier showcase of Pro-AV and Integrated Experience technologies which will be held from 5-7 September 2018, is being organized for the first time. Visiting AV professionals – including AV consultants, systems integrators, manufacturers of AV equipment, systems and solutions, manufacturer’s representatives and rental or staging contractors – can grab the first mover’s advantage to not only engage in building up meaningful networks during the show, but also discover clients, generate new leads, expand their business footprint and gather first-hand market intelligence about the many opportunities available in this untapped region.

Western China is on a pathway of remarkable growth, and the show has already drawn a growing list of big-name exhibitors including Epson, Extron, Intel, Bose, Yamaha, Leyard, AOTO and HongHe.

Chengdu InfoComm China 2018 is also well-supported by the Sichuan and Chengdu government as well as local industry associations, which welcome the debut of the show as a launchpad not just for the latest technological innovations, but also for the birth of exciting partnerships, collaborations and investment opportunities. Supporting organizations include the Sichuan Provincial Economic & Information Commission, the Sichuan Bureau of Expo Affairs and the Chengdu Municipal Bureau of Exposition. Supporting associations include the Sichuan FPD Industry Association, Digital Signage Multimedia Alliance Taiwan and China Hotel Association Wisdom.

Swift Ascent of Western China

With support from the China government which has earmarked Western China as a technological hotspot, the region is growing so fast it has been predicted that it would produce 25 percent of China’s total ICT output by 2025.

Already well on its way there, Western China is a key IT and ICT center in China. Major well-developed ICT parks in the region include the Chongqing Jinfeng Electronic Information Industrial Park, the Chengdu Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone and the Guiyang Hi-Tech Industrial Development Area.

The latest and most ambitious initiative is the development of the Tianfu New Area which was officially launched in 2011. Covering 1,578 square kilometers, the smart city is a testbed of innovation-driven development and new technologies built around nature, so it is an ideal place to live and work.

The nod to the environment reflects a similar evolution in the development of culture and entertainment in Western China, as aspirations shift to a higher level.

Not surprisingly, Western China has attracted numerous Fortune Global 500 companies which have spotted the potential for high growth in the region. Indeed, both Chongqing and Chengdu are each home to over 300 such companies.

In this landscape of development and government-supported expansion, opportunities are ripe to meet growing demands for innovation, particularly in the provision of new AV experiences.

Explosive Growth in the Belt and Road Initiative markets

Rising in parallel alongside Western China is the anticipated explosive growth in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) markets. BRI - spearheaded by China President Xi Jinping in 2013 to create a linked community across Asia, Africa and Europe - signals the start of a tsunami of economic opportunity as it will allow businesses to access an estimated US$21 trillion GDP and 4.4 billion people spread across 65 countries.

Richard Tan, Executive Director of InfoCommAsia, organizer of Chengdu InfoComm China 2018, said, “The Western China market by itself is amongst the most dynamic and fast-growing in the world today and can drive business growth for years to come. But as it also links to BRI markets and opportunities, a footprint in Western China could mark the start of a future path of stellar business growth. Chengdu InfoComm China 2018 is a show for market leaders to take the lead in a newly-developing and rapidly-expanding marketplace.”

The inaugural Chengdu InfoComm China 2018 runs from 5-7 September 2018 at the Western China International Expo Center. The next Beijing InfoComm China, in its 14th edition, will take place from 10-12 April 2019 at the China National Convention Center in Beijing.

Beijing InfoComm China 2018 runs until 13 April. Find out more about the Show
