By Derek Dellinger. Las Vegas, NV (June 13, 2012)—International attendance for InfoComm 2012 is projected to reach 16 percent of overall attendance, according to Jason McGraw, CTS, CAE, senior vice president, expositions for InfoComm. “Even though we’ve added numerous overseas shows, we haven’t seen a drop off in international attendance. It just goes to show that this is our largest show floor—the most comprehensive selection of exhibits and technologies.”

“InfoComm is one of the main shows for us in Brazil,” says Peter Lindquist, commercial director for KJPL Arbyte, based in Sao Paulo. “It gives us contact with the manufacturers. There’s not a lot of them in Brazil.”

KJPL Arbyte works largely with museums in Brazil, which Lindquist says are increasingly technological. “We don't have the manufacturers or the technology, but we have the creativity.”

“We primarily sell outside globally, outside of the UK,” says William Cavendish, technical director for Pufferfish, a developer of spherical display systems based in the U.K. “We’re looking to grow our business in the U.S. It’s a great opportunity for us to touch base with the existing clients, but also because we’re looking for new partners across a range of industries.”

“We’re drawn to InfoComm due to the overwhelming focus on our core markets and technologies,” says Ian Macpherson, managing director, 7thSense Design, U.K. “We’re here because all our customers are here.”
