This year's InfoComm MEA has leapfrogged the success of last years exhibition, posting visitor figures of 14,770, a 23% increase over the 12,023 attendees reported in 2012. With 184 exhibitors from 33 countries - including LG, Toshiba, Sharp and Black Magic - nearly 10,000 square metres of exhibition space was utilised.
Abdulla Al Bahrani, AGM Digital Service, Ministry Of Education, Oman, said: “The entire InfoComm MEA set up within GITEX is great, bringing together AV technology and equipment under one roof. Attending the event helped us in our annual sourcing process and meeting potential suppliers, and we plan on developing business relationships with several exhibitors.”
David Lim, Project Director, InfoComm MEA, added: “InfoComm MEA 2013 hosted strong growth in exhibitor and visitors, and showcased a wide range of launches for professional audiovisual products and services. Mega events such as FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar and the potential World Expo 2020 in Dubai will drive demand for audiovisual technology in the region, and we expect InfoComm MEA 2014 to top this year’s.”
