A gathering of professionals from broadcasting, video, audio, lighting and media businesses
Now in its 50th year, Inter BEE is widely recognized by professional users in the
industry as the first-ranked and largest audio, video and communications
professional exhibition in Japan.
It continues to play a leading role as an information hub where a variety of participants ranging from broadcasting businesses, equipment manufacturers, associated service businesses and content business representatives all gather under one roof once a year to grasp the latest trends.
Worldwide attention on innovations to support future media business
Over 31,000 industry people from 35 countries and regions took part in the last
event, where a record-high 918 companies introduced world-class cutting-edge

Crucial role in global business schemes
Inter BEE is seen as a major global media exhibition alongside NAB of North America,
IBC of Europe, and BIRTV of China.
Equipment manufacturers' global business scheme is to announce new products at NAB in April, get a feel for users' needs at BIRTV and IBC, and then after making several adjustments exhibit the final product at Inter BEE in November. Inter BEE, therefore, contributes to the development of substantive business activities linked with securing budget estimates for the next fiscal year.
An international exhibition that supports business matching between worldwide stakeholders
Inter BEE enhances a global network through activities such as forming partnerships with the Brazilian Society of Television Engineering (SET). In cooperation with broadcasting and media exhibitions and international conferences across the whole of Asia, Inter BEE actively encourages local users to attend these events. Inter BEE has helped to actively develop international business activities. For example, exhibiting equipment manufacturers invite customers through local businesses in order to gain a foothold in breakthrough markets.

Inter BEE is held in collaboration with Internet and various media and in partnership with industry groups and consortiums. It is now joined by new equipment manufacturers as it steps up its support for the diversification of media.
Gathering of promising production and top creators
Inter BEE is used as an opportunity for up and coming Asian creators to conduct technical exchange on a wide variety of themes including the establishment of production promotion areas, plug-in and color grading by film production professionals. It is also used as a place for communication between people involved in the production of contents through activities such as the establishment of lectures by top creators currently active in Japan or abroad.
