Malaysian companies returning to iconic event will boast growth in size and breadth of exhibits

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Three months before the opening of BroadcastAsia2011 and CommunicAsia2011 – Asia’s most distinguished business event for the global broadcasting, digital media and infocomm technology industries – its organiser is already anticipating a milestone year for both events.

To be held from 21 – 24 June at the award-winning Suntec Singapore and the prestigious Marina Bay Sands respectively, BroadcastAsia2011 and CommunicAsia2011 will serve as the premier launch pad for companies to introduce cutting-edge technologies and solutions designed to enhance global connectivity for consumers and businesses, and shape the future of digital content delivery across the world.

More Malaysian companies will join returning favourites MCMC and MEASAT

Multinationals and small and medium enterprises have selected CommunicAsia2011 and BroadcastAsia2011 to demonstrate their home-grown capabilities to the global industries. MEASAT is returning to CommunicAsia with a 40 per cent increase in booth size, alongside other Malaysian favourites including Cyberview Sdn Bhd, Avira Sdn Bhd and Aexio as well as first time exhibitors EFUNTV (M) Sdn Bhd, Infinet Wireless Sdn Bhd and Ansarcomp (M) Sdn Bhd.

Roland Asia Pacific Sdn Bhd, Salzbrenner Stagetec Mediagroup Sdn Bhd and Tele System Electronic (M) Sdn Bhd are exhibitors at BroadcastAsia2011.

Size of Malaysian Group Pavilion at CommunicAsia2011 increased by nearly 30 per cent

Led by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), the Malaysia country group pavilion at CommunicAsia2011 will boast a 30 percent growth in size compared to 2010, and 80 per cent bigger compared to its debut in 2005.

Event attendees will experience an enhanced show atmosphere with the introduction of new TechZones and Technology Trails, which distinctly organise key exhibitors by breakthrough technologies. The abundance and variety of purpose-built conference room, seminar room and hospitality suite facilities at the venues allows for increased high-level networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities between business and industry luminaries and attending government officials from across the globe.

These developments follow the success of last year’s event, which attracted a total of over 55,000 industry visitors, exhibitors, conference speakers and delegates, and media guests from over 100 countries and regions. In 2011, attendees can look forward to a myriad of the newest technologies, products and solutions from about 2,000 multinational and small and medium companies.

“There is no other combination of events worldwide where the broadcasting, digital media and infocomm technology industries come together in one city during the same week. Together, BroadcastAsia2011 and CommunicAsia2011 serve as the key international platform in Asia for Malaysian business leaders and trade professionals from multinational corporations to small and medium enterprises, and government officials to network, discuss the hottest industry trends and critical issues, and pursue high-growth opportunities that will shape the way digital content is delivered to and between us, both in work and play,” said Mr. Victor Wong, Project Director of Communication Events, Singapore Exhibition Services.

“Hosting the events in their new, in-town venues will enhance sourcing activities, networking opportunities and knowledge-sharing potential both on and off the exhibition floors. In today’s fast-paced, ever-changing technology industry, face-to-face and open forum meetings have never been more important.”
