The number of international attendees at BroadcastAsia and CommunicAsia was up 15 percent compared to last year, according to the shows’ organiser.

A total of 55,150 visitors attended the two shows, which took place in Singapore last week.

“The increase in overseas attendees, particular those from the Asia Pacific region, reflects the anticipated rebound in IT and media spending and how companies are ready to invest for further growth in Asia,” said Stephen Tan, CEO of show organiser, Singapore Exhibition Services (SES). “This strongly cements CommunicAsia and BroadcastAsia’s position as the top global trade event for the Infocomm, broadcasting and media industries in Asia.”

As anticipated 3D dominated the agenda at BroadcastAsia with Harris, Panasonic and Sony among the companies unveiling production and broadcast equipment to cater for the standard.

The shows attracted close to 2000 exhibitors from 57 countries.
