With a 12-year track record of shows in Beijing, InfoCommAsia Pte Ltd. is launching a second InfoComm China show in Chengdu, Western China. Slated to run from September 11 to 13, 2018, Chengdu InfoComm China will offer participating exhibitors, businesses and manufacturers new opportunities to tap into the lucrative Western China and Belt & Road Initiative (BRI) markets.
Although China’s commercial AV and experiential communications technologies industry is among the fastest-growing and most dynamic worldwide, the Western China region is set to lead the expansion. Due to low production costs, a government that is supportive of information and communication technology (ICT) companies, and the rapid growth of ICT investment, Western China is predicted to produce 25 percent of China’s total ICT output by 2025.
In terms of infrastructure, Western China represents a thriving metropolis. It is already buzzing with ICT parks and high-end residential developments, and it’s home to a growing number of Fortune Global 500 companies. The Chengdu InfoComm China venue—the Western China International Expo City—is an expansive, modern, well-equipped facility that befits the city.
Rising in parallel alongside Western China is the anticipated explosive growth in the 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 wave of economic opportunity. It will allow businesses to access an estimated $21 trillion GDP and 4.4 billion people spread across 65 countries.
Meanwhile, the Beijing InfoComm China event will continue to be staged from April 11 to 13, 2018, at the China National Convention Center, Beijing.
