Asia's AV community will once again gather in Hong Kong this November for an update on the latest pro AV products and applications. InfoComm Asia 2010, to be held from 17 -19 November at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, will feature some 320 AV manufacturers from 27 countries. Occupying some 17,000 square metres of exhibition space on one floor, the event will be a good opportunity for the AV dealers, distributors, designers and systems integrators and consultants to find not only new products but also new manufacturers. They can also connect with Asian end users as 44% of the attendees in the 2008 event came from the end -user markets.

With the Asia Pacific region overtaking Europe as the second largest pro AV market in the world, according to an InfoComm International® market survey, InfoComm Asia 2010 will be a valuable source of new contacts and education for AV professionals in Asia.

The survey shows that Asia Pacific accounts for 25% or $16.8 billion of global sales, and forecasts the region to be the fastest growing over the next three years, at a CAGR of 13% vs 9% CAGR projected for Europe and North America. By 2012, the Asia Pacific pro AV market is expected to reach $23.9 billion, with China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, taken together, having the largest share (32%) of the market. The Indian subcontinent market accounts for 9%, but is the fastest growing at a CAGR of 23% between 2009 and 2012 (vs 14% for greater China), with a projected size of $2.66 billion by 2012.

To participate in the growing Asian markets, many international AV manufacturers have used the InfoComm Asia platform to increase their brand presence in Asia. These include AMX, Beyerdynamic, Crestron, Christie Digital, Da -Lite, Danish Interpretation Systems, Digital Projection, dnp denmark, Draper, Extron, Jupiter Systems, Kramer, Lighthouse, Oray, projectiondesign, Sennheiser, Stewart Filmscreen, VTRON and WolfVision. Among the leading Asian brands are Cayin Technology, Creator, Dehao Electronics, Gefen, Grandview Crystal Screen, GQY, Shenzhen Liantronics, Taiden and Vity Technology.

In conjunction with the trade exhibition, the InfoComm Asia 2010 Summit Program will offer learning opportunities such as technical updates on industry practices and trends (InfoComm Academy Seminars); professional sound system design (2 -day SynAudCon Workshop); in -depth discussion of new AV technologies, products and solution (Manufacturers' Presentations); and AV applications in specific market sectors (Industry Conferences). There will also be Technical Site Visits to actual AV installations, e.g. the ALiVE exhibition at the Hong Kong Science Park, for a first -hand appreciation of real applications.
