TecnoMultimedia Infocomm Colombia Fair Attracts More Than 5,000 Visitors

BOGOTA The 7th TecnoMultimedia Infocomm Colombia audiovisual fair drew 5,000 visitors to Bogota over three days, a 10 percent increase in attendance compared to last year, organizers said.

Were having more and more visitors, because were filling a void, Victor Alarcon, the projects director of the fair, which concluded Thursday, told EFE.

In the past, people had to attend fairs abroad, mostly in the United States, to get to know these kinds of technologies, he said. Were now bringing these technologies here so people can see them.

In 2015, the fair attracted 4,274 visitors, mostly technology managers and directors interested in learning about products presented at fairs in Germany and the United States.

Surveys conducted by organizers revealed an increase in live events and shows in Colombia, and that has caused attendance at the fair to grow by an average of 28 percent since 2012

The fair, which has been held in Colombia, Mexico and Brazil since 2009, attracted manufacturers, distributors and integrators of this technology segment.

It targeted companies that stage live events as well as others, such as airports, churches, hospitals or educational institutions, with fixed audiovisual installations.

Were the only ones staging this fair here in Colombia, Alarcon said. Its a fair that attracts a lot of people. Its an industry thats growing a lot. (The fair) is completely technological, totally visual, it has a lot of impact. So its very nice to visit.

TecnoMultimedia Infocomm Colombia featured more than 700 exhibitors in the automation, lightning, and audiovisual technology sectors, as well as a pavilion devoted to drone technology, which was the big novelty in this edition.

For the first time, we had a specialized drone pavilion, like other global fairs do, Alarcon said. Its a technology increasingly employed in surveillance, but also in the recording area.

Alarcon added that a lot of business deals were clinched at the fair.

The TecnoMultimedia Infocomm fair was held in tandem with Tecnotelevision & Radio, an exhibition of new technology trends in radio and television.
