ImbX trade shows Singapore receive overwhelming response; facilitate product launches, partnerships and deals

MUMBAI: CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT, Asia's largest ICT and enterprise technology shows closed on 18 June at the Singapore Expo. According to organisers, the events attended by 33,341 visitors registered 6.4 per cent increase in overseas visitors from 79 countries.

The exhibitors received positive feedbacks from participants who thought the show was very well organised and it attracted a high proportion of quality international trade visitors with genuine interest in purchasing and sourcing new technologies.

Many exhibitors found the show equally productive and some also noticed the sharp increase in mainland Chinese exhibitors and overseas visitors, says an official release.

""We've had 80 new leads in the last two days of the show. There's been an enormous amount of visitors. I've noticed that there are more mainland Chinese exhibitors this year than in previous years, which is positive. There's also an increase in overseas visitors. The shows are good and seem to be very well-organised and structured," Asia Pacific, Polycom marketing director said Sue Day.

For some, the idea of holding all three events simultaneously was an effective way of creating greater synergy and broadening the scope of customers.

Motorola Canopy international technical manager Mike Diliberto is quoted in the release saying, "It has been a very profitable show for us. We've had a tremendous amount of leads. Our sales reps will be very busy."

BroadcastAsia exhibitors were equally satisfied with the show turnout, adds the release quoting Miller Fluid Heads international marketing manager Brett Smith.

"Once again, BroadcastAsia has managed to capture the current trends in the changing broadcast market by attracting all the key players both manufacturers and our customers."

Some New Product Launches, Partnerships Formed, and Deals Sealed at the shows:

Gemplus, a leading provider of smart card solutions announced its new SMS organizer, which is now being included in a few of China Mobile's brand services. Gemplus also tied up with South Korea Telecom to deliver USIM card technology SKT's commercial launch of its 3G W-CDMA network.

Swedish giant, Ericsson unveiled a US$109 million deal to expand China's Guangxi Mobile Communications' GSM network in southwestern China. It also revealed a deal with Thailand's Advanced Info Service to work on the second phase of its EDGE (Enhanced Data rates for Global Evolution) expansion in the Bangkok metropolitan area and to supply the company with a multimedia messaging service solution.

Lucent Technologies announced four new contracts worth over US$120 million. The company will supply China Telecom, India's Tata Teleservices, Korea's KT and Vietnam Power Telecoms (VP Telecom) with network solutions based on Bell Labs technology, the research arm of Lucent.

PanAmSat announced the signing of a fiber interconnectivity agreement with ST Teleport, a satellite communications solution provider based in Singapore. The agreement extends the reach of the PanAmSat global network from Singapore to California increasing the company's ability to deliver its customers programming via satellite and fiber to and from the Asia Pacific and North American regions.
