For exhibitors, Beijing InfoComm China 2020 was a welcome opportunity to connect with customers face-to-face after months of distance working and remote communications.

Networking activities also took place, with necessary precautions.

What the participants say:

“We are satisfied with the quantity and quality of buyers at the Show. I met potential customers and had fruitful discussions with them. Beijing InfoComm China has been very useful for us in developing and expanding our customer base”, said Li Langping, Manager, Intelligent Collaborative Marketing of Huawei.

“The flow of visitors to the exhibition was beyond my expectation,” shared Aaron Lu, Product Director at Tico. “Before the Show, everyone generally believed that there should not be too many visitors on the first day. In fact, if you look around, there are visitors talking about business almost at every booth.”

“The first day of the Show was good. I spent almost 70% of my time communicating with buyers at the booth. As an international show for Pro-AV and integrated experiential technology, Beijing InfoComm China attracts industry professionals. They all come to visit with their ideas and needs. Under the current situation, we can still reach new customers at the Show which makes us very satisfied”, said Lu Yang, Technical Director of FionTu Group.

The organizers of Beijing InfoComm China showed they were able to stage a trade exhibition efficiently and safely under unprecedented conditions of the pandemic.

“This is my first time visiting Beijing InfoComm China. I found some solutions that could be applied to my current projects, and am hoping these technologies can help develop my business. I also met some brands, suppliers and partners which are useful leads for further follow-up”, said Xue Lei, Senior Structural Engineer of Beijing Hangtian Kede Technology Co., Ltd.

“When the pandemic broke out early in the year, and business operations were disrupted and movement of people was curtailed, we were not sure if Beijing InfoComm China could be staged due to health and safety concerns,” said Richard Tan, Executive Director of InfoCommAsia. “However, the encouragement of exhibitors gave us the confidence to proceed with organizing the Show, with the support of venue and industry partners. We are heartened by the positive response and feedback, validating our decision and justifying the confidence of participants and industry players.”

“The Summit at Beijing InfoComm China is a good platform for information exchange. It not only allows professionals from various industries to gather together, but also provides an opportunity for them to learn from one another. As an alliance that focuses on AV/IT convergence, we need a platform like Beijing InfoComm China’s Summit to promote our philosophy and the entire ecosystem involving audio, video and IT. I consider Beijing InfoComm China the best exhibition I have seen since the pandemic broke out this year,” said Holden Guo, Vice Secretary of SDVoE Alliance (China).
