About 700 companies from 40 countries will take part in 'Broadcast Asia 2002', the annual broadcast and multimedia technology event, to be held in Singapore from June 18 to 21.
Speaking to newspersons in New Delhi, Stephen Tan, chief executive of Singapore Exhibition Services, Broadcast Asia's organiser, said that there was a need to increase the presence of Indian visitors at the fair from about 300 to 500 considering the large number of TV channels and films being made in the country.
“This year, we are expecting about 300 visitors from India out of the total 14,000 visitors. This number if very low as India is a large base of television channels and is the largest producer of films in the world,” Tan said.
Broadcast Asia focusses on broadcast technology, digital art and computer animation.
This year's event which will be held concurrently with the info-communications event, Communic Asia 2002, would have
three specialist events, namely, professional audio technology
2002, comgraphics and animation 2002 and cables at 2002.
