“We saw more active engagement between visitors and exhibitors this year than we have seen in the past.” said Saicom Trade Fairs director Kavita Meer, “And since we collect feedback during show days, we came to realise that over a handful of years, our profile of visitors has changed from those who were content with just buying and selling to an audience that questions and challenges these advances in technology as well. That kind of back-and-forth is vital for the growth of the creative industry, not just in India but all over the world,”
Like always, a standard has been set for an arena that provides end-to-end technology solutions for serious visitors, buyers and decision-makers. The overwhelming response to the 2016 show only opens more doors for participation from the world’s most forward-thinking brands. And Broadcast India is committed to making sure this annual tech pilgrimage grows from strength-to-strength. Higher levels of participation from China and European countries as compared to previous years were seen. In total, 36 countries and over 590 companies participated in the show this year, with a visitor footfall of 20,143.
Broadcast India Show 2017 will take place on 12-14 October 2017 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai.
