Message from the Organizer

Inter BEE, which has been held for half a century since 1965, is organized into four exhibit categories: “Video and Broadcast Equipment,” “Professional Audio Equipment,” “Professional Lighting Equipment” and “ICT/Cross Media.” This event is utilized as an opportunity to become a hub for information dissemination and exchange once a year by bringing together under one roof a wide range of stakeholders involved in the media industry from Japan and overseas, including broadcasters, telecommunication carriers and production/post-production operators. The exhibition is held under the support of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, the Japan Broadcasting Cooperation (NHK), the Japan Commercial Broadcasters Association and the Association of Radio Industries and Businesses, and with the cooperation of many other relevant organizations.

The business environment surrounding broadcasting is rapidly changing. For example, there are efforts underway toward the popularization of the next-generation broadcasting services such as 4K/8K ultra-high-definition video being promoted with an eye on 2020, cooperation between broadcasting and communications, and developments in the use and application of ICT. Moreover, the areas of the media and entertainment business are expanding and evolving beyond the conventional boundaries. For example, the live entertainment market that makes full use of sound and lighting equipment is expanding, the segments of users including high-end amateurs are increasing due to the diversification of video shooting techniques such as action cameras and experiences to try viewing and listening to video and audio are spreading. This is leading to the roles of Inter BEE also becoming more wide-ranging and ever more important.

Last year at Inter BEE 2014, which celebrated its 50th anniversary, the scale of the venue was expanded on from the previous year with a record number of 977 companies/organizations exhibiting in 1,773 booths and with the number of registered visitors also increasing significantly by 19% compared to the previous year to a record 37,959. Inter BEE attracts intense attention from Japan and overseas as a comprehensive international media exhibition that creates new business trends and leads the relevant industries.

Inter BEE 2015 will be held in Makuhari Messe over three days from November 18 (Wednesday) to 20 (Friday) in order for these expectations to lead to further major trends. Inter BEE, which appeals to the world about state-of-the-art technologies, responds to the needs of professionals to steadily showcase industry information to markets in Japan and overseas and provides a platform for effective and meaningful information exchange and business creation for all exhibitors and visitors. We are sincerely looking forward to everyone fully taking advantage of this opportunity and to actively participate toward acquiring new business opportunities.
