Inter BEE will be held using the entire 54,000 m2 of Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Halls 1 to 8 and the event hall in four categories: Professional Audio Equipment, Video Expression/Professional Lighting, Video Production/Broadcast Equipment and ICT/Cross Media. We expect 40,000 visitors over the three days of this event.
■Showcasing the Evolving and Changing Frontline of Sports Content
We have a full lineup of sports related sessions starting with Opening & Keynote under the theme of sports content that is evolving and changing on a daily basis as key content through broadcasting, communications and live performances. Ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic Games next year, how are diversified forms of media (e.g., broadcasting, communications and live performances) communicating and expressing sports using the latest technology? We will showcase the frontline of sports content from various angles.
Furthermore, we will hold a special exhibition called INTER BEE SPORT in the exhibition hall. This will provide opportunities to create new business from various perspectives with exhibition booths, exhibitor presentations and live events.

We will introduce the current state of interoperability with a real IP device demo exhibition under three themes and hold a 4K/HD-compatible full IP outside broadcasting vehicle exhibition and relay seminar in the INTER BEE IP PAVILION. We will promote the possibilities in the media and entertainment field that is expected to serve as a usage case for the fifth-generation mobile communications system (5G) in INTER BEE 5G. This will provide the opportunity for networking with 5G related operators, video producers, broadcasters, distributors, content holders and other stakeholders. Furthermore, we will showcase the present and future of media and entertainment from various perspectives with INTER BEE CONNECTED, an event to propose the next step in broadcasting from the accelerating fusion of broadcasting and communications, INTER BEE IGNITION, an event to propose the possibilities of expressions and contents extended to new media, and INTER BEE CREATIVE, an event to showcase the latest trends and the creativity of those from the frontline of video production.
