SINGAPORE, June 2, 2010 - (ACN Newswire) - Trade visitors this year can look forward to a larger showcase of the latest technologies and solutions when Asia's premier business event for the global ICT industry opens from 15 - 18 June 2010. CommunicAsia2010, together with BroadcastAsia2010, will feature almost 2,000 exhibitors from 57 countries and regions. These international companies, ranging from market leading multinationals to innovative small and medium sized enterprises, will take up nine per cent more space within 58,000 square metres of hall space in Singapore Expo.
"The enthusiastic growth in exhibition space taken up reflects the positive outlook for the ICT industry and reaffirms CommunicAsia's reputation as a global business networking and launch platform in Asia," said Mr. Victor Wong, Project Director of Communications Events, Singapore Exhibition Services. "Backed with strong industry response, CommunicAsia2010 is set to foster new partnerships and business opportunities that enable industry leaders to remain resilient and at the forefront of the latest trends and technologies."
According to IDC's annual outlook for 2010, ICT spending and growth in Asia/Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) will reach US$184 billion in 2010, a 7.7 per cent growth over last year. The Southeast Asian telecommunication services market, encompassing mobile voice, mobile data, fixed telephony, corporate data and Internet access services (IAS), will reach US$36.1 billion in 2010, or eight per cent higher than its 2009 performance.
Stronger participation of Asian and US exhibitors spur CommunicAsia's rebound
The exhibition's notable growth is buoyed by stronger participation by exhibitors hailing from Asia and the US. China, which emerged as the biggest overseas contributor of exhibitors two years ago, follows up with a 21 per cent increase in its number of exhibitors to a total of 199. Exhibitors from Hong Kong and Indonesia have also increased significantly by 17 per cent and 35 per cent to 54 and 38 exhibitors respectively. The second largest overseas contingent of exhibitors hails from the US. It numbers 114, up from 92 in 2009.
Highlights of CommunicAsia2010
The rising popularity of smartphones is changing the way the world communicates. IDC predicted that the mobile workforce in APEJ region will grow to 734.5 million in 2013 from 546.4 million in 2008. By 2013, 62 per cent of the world's mobile workforce is expected to come from this region. Development of mobile applications is accelerating as a result. IDC expects mobile market players in Southeast Asia will speed up the development and introduction of innovative mobile applications to meet rising, fast-changing needs of customers.
In tandem with this growing trend, CommunicAsia2010, with support of the Mobile Alliance Singapore (MA), Mobile Entertainment Forum (MEF) and Wireless Industry Partnership (WIP), will show the latest developments and innovations in mobile applications, technologies and solutions by top-notch mobile developers, content providers and independent software vendors from around the world. The event will also present WIPJam sessions, interactive discussions that open up the mobile ecosystem and connect developers with industry experts and decision makers.
Further highlights to be added to the exhibition show floor are new technology clusters - FTTx and Sustainable ICT - to address new growth opportunities in Asia.
Visitors to CommunicAsia2010 will also see the latest products and solutions from 24 group pavilions, including the new entrants from Bangladesh, a group led by India's Telecom Equipment and Services Export Promotion (TEPC), and South Korea's Gwangju Info & Culture Industry Promotion Agency (GITCT). Some of the key satellite players, telecom service providers and key infrastructure solutions providers at this year's show include Asia Broadcast Satellite, GlobeCast, Huawei, Intelsat, Inmarsat, MEASAT, NTT DoCoMo, PCCW Global, Research in Motion (RIM), Samsung Electronics, SingTel Satellite, Skype, Telekom Malaysia and ZTE.
The CommunicAsia2010 Summit will feature over 80 sessions of dedicated conferences and workshops on topics such as mobile value added services, cloud computing, next generation broadband and green IT - all aimed at helping ICT players increase profitability and reduce cost.
EnterpriseIT2010 will once again be held in conjunction with CommunicAsia2010 to address the convergence of technology and showcase innovative enterprise solutions that meet the evolving needs of businesses. Exhibitors from this segment offer a breadth of solutions from network security to managed services to telepresence, and include companies like AEP Networks, DIGILINK, Extreme Networks, Nete2 Asia, NComputing, Webvisions, QNO Technology, OPUS IT, Sai Infosystem, SQL View and TANDBERG.
