■Expanding media experience
Held for the 55th time, Inter BEE 2019 will show the world the potential of media and entertainment to deliver impressive events such as sports events as “new user experiences” in anticipation of 2020, when the eyes of the world will be on Japan. These possibilities will be expanded by the growing market of “new 4K/8K satellite broadcasting” and “fifth generation mobile communications systems (5G)”, for which expectations are rising due to the start of trial operations. Based on a concept of “expanding media experiences”, this major trend will accelerate further.
■Evolving into a comprehensive media event
Inter BEE has walked hand-in-hand with the development of broadcasting media, and as an exhibition that presents the new user experience of the media industry in the digital transformation age, Inter BEE has aimed, for a three year period spanning from 2017 to 2019, to evolve into a "comprehensive media event" exhibition which, placing "contents" at its core, covers "make (production)", "send (transmission)" and "receive (experience)”. Inter BEE 2019 will be the final year of this three-year program.
■ Jointly held with Digital Contents EXPO 2019
“Digital Contents EXPO”, an international event that covers leading-edge content technology and digital contents, will be held at the Inter BEE event again this year. By continuing this collaboration with Digital Contents EXPO, Inter BEE will promote utilization of the latest content technology in the fields of media and entertainment.
■ Record number of exhibitors and visitors last year
Using all halls from 1 to 8 of Makuhari Messe, Inter BEE 2018 recorded 1,152 exhibiting companies and 40,839 visitors over the three days of the exhibition, breaking all previous records.
Inter BEE 2019 will be organized into four exhibition categories: “Professional Audio,” “Video Expression/Professional Lighting,” “Video Production/Broadcast Equipment” and “ICT/Cross-Media”, and it will also feature special sessions and new programs that promote new technology and services focusing on sporting content. Preparations are underway to provide opportunities for effective and meaningful information exchange and business creation.
