Singapore: As many as 67,573 people across the globe visited the four-day infocomm and broadcasting exhibition, CommunicAsia 2008, which ended here ON 21June.
More than 2,300 infocomm and broadcasting companies from 61 countries, including India, showcased their products and solutions at the four-day event.
“We delivered a robust and relevant event this year with the strong support and representation from our exhibitors both market leaders and emerging enterprises,” Stephen Tan, chief executive of Singapore Exhibition Services (SES), organizers of the exhibition, said last night.
“Exhibitors in the WiMAX, IPTV and mobile entertainment segments responded strongly to the ever-increasing role of technology in our lives. These clusters have grown substantially and attracted good crowds at the show,” he said.
Of the total number of people visited the technology event, 52% came from outside Singapore, hailing from about 100 countries and regions across Asia-Pacific, Europe, US and the Middle-East, a release from the SES said.
Global mobile manufacturers like Samsung, LG and Garmin introduced a wide range of new handsets at the CommunicAsia, leveraging on the show as a launching pad to reach out to the audience worldwide.
Korean telecom major Samsung unveiled its touchscreen model ‘Omnia´ on the eve of the four-day infocomm exhibition, exactly a week after Apple introduced an upgraded model of its earlier iphone, while another Korean mobile leader LG launched its much-awaited black phone ‘Secret´.
