CommunicAsia Singapore EXPO

CommunicAsia 2010

So I tagged along to Singapore EXPO to visit four exhibitions that were held concurrently last week and came away enthralled by the sheer size of the EXPO. I took a lot of photos at the exhibitions but here are some of the highlights.

Malaysia looked to me like the country with the most exhibitors this year. The organizer also made sure that the Malaysian Pavilion was the liveliest corner in the entire hall with traditional dances, lucky draws and walkabout by two clowns on stilts wearing the Malaysian flag.

I have to say that I laughed a lot because of their antics but at the back of my mind, I couldn’t help but think that these two clowns were totally out of place in an international trade show like this.

Their presence made receiving soft drinks and junk food in the 1Malaysia goodie bag seemed like a small issue. No wonder foreigners can’t help but associate Malaysians with clowns.

Of all the products that were promoted in these four exhibitions, two of them caught my eye. One was iTwin, a Singaporean product that will be launched later in the year, the other was Neoi from Germany, which produces novelty devices like credit card sized mobile phones. I like!

The most interesting exhibition to me was BroadcastAsia 2010 where exhibitors made use of very creative ways to present their products. Sony was one of the more outstanding ones. As you can see from this photo, two ladies sat down and painted umbrellas with striking colours. Sony was promoting their video cameras and they wanted to let us see how the colours could be captured on video.

At the end of the day, I left Singapore EXPO with a new experience and a whole lot of new ideas! Let’s not forget the freebies too!
