COVID-19 had forced organizers of big business events around the globe to either cancelled or postponed them. With the world gradually opening up and the situation seemingly under control today, ISLE (Int’l Large Screen Display Technology, Audio-Visual Intelligence Integrated System, Signs and LED Exhibition, Shenzhen) Asia’s largest international LED exhibition is determined to reopen on August 31st.
The organizers of this annual business come together have also announced that the event this year has been moved to Shenzhen, a major sub-provincial city on the east bank of the Pearl River estuary on the central coast of Southern Guangdong province. The Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center is the newest and largest venue in the world. The total exhibiting area of ISLE expands to 160,000 m2.
It is expected that there will be more than 2000 manufacturers and 250,000 professional visitors will be attending. This is coming at a time China’s leaders have declared the coronavirus outbreak largely under control within its borders.
During the four-day event, new technologies and materials will be exhibited and many scientific achievements will be debuted, showing a visual feast of science and technology. Experts and entrepreneurs in ads and LED industry will be invited to comment on the current status of the industry, and forums will equally be held for the purpose of discussion and exchange.
In a post pandemic setting where large screen display technology, audio-visual intelligence integrated systems and other forms of display are gaining stronger grounds, this will be a great opportunity for businesses on the African continent. Especially those involved in technology and other related fields looking to expand to other regions of the world to network and build new business relationship.
COVID-19 undoubtedly has exposed weaknesses in all sectors around the world and issued in the need for greater use of technology to solve one of the world’s greatest problem. For this reason, avenues like this are useful because they are open sources where everyone can learn and develop adapted technologies suitable within their specific context. It goes without doubt that, a technology that works perfectly well in one region might not exactly meet the needs of another.
